The iPhone 14’s Emergency SOS Satellite Messaging function recorded the first rescue

The rescue of a snowmobiler in Alaska may have been the ideal scenario for Apple to design the perfect advertisement for the new Emergency SOS Satellite Messaging capability for the iPhone 14.
The Alaska Department of Public Safety reported that State Troopers got the message at 2:00 am and immediately acted in what is thought to be the first recorded usage of the function that led to an actual rescue.
Search and rescue crews were able to locate the stranded man thanks to the notice from the Apple Emergency Response Center, which we had previously been unaware of. The snowmobile rider was uninjured and safe.
The troopers were “impressed with the accuracy and completeness of the material provided in the initial notice,” according to a MacRumors article. Before delivering a condensed message to the emergency services via the Globalstar satellite network, the feature asks the iPhone 14 user a series of questions regarding their situation.
According to the State of Alaska Department of Public Safety:

On December 1, 2022, at around 2:00 am, the Alaska State Troopers were notified that an adult male traveling via snowmachine from Noorvik to Kotzebue had activated an Apple iPhone Emergency SOS Satellite Messaging via satellite on his iPhone after becoming stranded.

Working with local search and rescue teams, the Apple Emergency Response Center, and the Northwest Arctic Borough Search and Rescue Coordinator, the NWAB SAR deployed four volunteer searchers to the Nimiuk Point area directly to the GPS coordinates provided by the Apple Emergency Response Center.

The adult male was located and transported to Kotzebue by the volunteer search team. There were no injuries reported to the Troopers.
Currently available in the US and Canada, Emergency SOS Satellite Messaging will also be available in the UK later this month.
