Apple adds Satellite Emergency Service feature to iPhone 14
Apple announced the long-rumored ability to connect its iPhone 14 series to satellites for emergency services during its event on Wednesday through a partnership with Globalstar.
The feature is designed to connect the iPhone 14’s antennas directly to the satellite, to send messages to areas unconnected to cell towers.
Ashley Williams, Apple’s manager of satellite modeling and simulation, said an algorithm in the phone compresses text messages to a size that would take “less than 15 seconds to send” to a satellite, before sending it to a ground station. and will be sent to an emergency service provider. ,
Emergency satellite service debuted in November, and is included with the iPhone 14 for free for two years.
Globalstar confirmed in a filing that it is supporting the iPhone 14 emergency satellite service, and will “allocate 85% of its current and future network capacity” to support the feature.
Satellite communications — which have many existing networks that support specialized, purpose-built phones — are undergoing a new era of investment. Companies including Elon Musk’s SpaceX and AST Spacemobile have previously announced partnerships with mobile service providers, with a similar goal of providing similar satellite services directly to traditional consumer smartphones.

Apple stock generally doesn’t outperform after iPhone launch
Investors trading on news of Apple’s new iPhones on Wednesday should heed the advice of Bernstein’s Tony Sacconaghi.
“Historically, Apple’s stock hasn’t reacted materially to iPhone announcements (given that there are generally no surprises), and typically after iPhone announcements (usually mid-September to mid-November). Performance over the 3 months has been pretty muted, as investors wait to gauge the strength of the iPhone cycle,” Sacconaghi wrote in a note this week.
In fact, analysts say Apple shares generally perform in line with the market a month after the reveal, CNBC reported this week. – how lacewing
