How To Share Your Location Via Satellite With Find My?

Do you want to learn How To Share Your Location Via Satellite With Find My? Apple launched Satellite Emergency SOS via satellite service in the US and Canada in November 2022. The feature is meant to help you in a real emergency, but Apple’s satellites also let you share your location via Find My when you are off the grid.

After Apple announced the Emergency SOS satellite feature, all of the iPhone 14 models—the iPhone 14, the iPhone 14 Plus, the iPhone 14 Pro, and the iPhone 14 Pro Max—can connect directly to a satellite through a combination of custom-made parts and built-in software.

This means that people with an iPhone 14 can send messages to emergency services even when they are not in cellular or Wi-Fi coverage. Even if you’re in the middle of nowhere and don’t have a real emergency, you can use Find My to let your friends and family know where you are.

There are a few things you should know before you follow the steps below to use the new Find My feature. As of this writing, the iPhone 14’s satellite features are only available in the US and Canada. In December 2022, however, they will also be available in France, Germany, Ireland, and the UK. Keep in mind that you can’t be connected to Wi-Fi or have cell service for the feature to show up.

Also, Emergency SOS via satellite and Find My via satellite require iOS 16.1. To ensure your device is up to date, open Settings and go to General > Software Update.

Last but not least, when you activate a new iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Plus, iPhone 14 Pro, or iPhone 14 Pro Max, the satellite service is free for two years. Apple’s satellite features are expected to become a paid service after two years.
