The iPhone 14 series of phones gets another year of free SOS satellite communication
When the iPhone 14 series of phones was launched, Apple promised its users two years of free emergency SOS satellite communication, but now it is extending the service for another year. This feature allows users to contact emergency services in areas without mobile connectivity.
However, while the entire iPhone 14 series of phones is getting this service extension, it still won’t be available to everyone. Apple specifies that the free version will be extended only to users who have activated their device in a country that supports emergency SOS satellite communication before November 15, 2023 at 12:00 PM Pacific Time.
This means that, although Serbia is not on the list of countries that support the mentioned satellite communication, you can still get an extension of this service if you have activated the device in: Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Portugal, Spain, Switzerland, Great Britain or the USA.
Interestingly, Apple is extending this service at no additional charge, but still does not specify how much it will cost after the free trial period ends.
