The Times Colonist recently reported how two women stranded in British Columbia were rescued by Emergency SOS on an iPhone 14.
The two were on their way back to Alberta when they took a detour via Holmes Forest Service Road due to a closed highway. Halfway through the route, the two stopped and realized the road hadn’t been completely plowed. BC Search and Rescue senior manager Dwight Yokim said the two encountered a “wall of snow” and “got stuck when trying to get through it.”
Yochim continued the way the women were stranded without cell service, but luckily one of them had a new Apple smartphone with SOS. Once activated, Robson Valley Search and Rescue and RCMP received GPS data to locate them and bring them back.
Emergency SOS via satellite is a feature available on the iPhone 14 lineup.
