Will Apple iPhone 14 series in India support Emergency SOS via satellite connectivity?
Sadly, we don’t have any words from Apple, and neither has the Cupertino giant added India to its list of countries. As of now users in India with the iPhone 14 series will not be able to use this feature.
Probably, Apple will soon start providing this feature in India in the near future. But, we will have to wait a little longer to get to see this feature making its way to launch in Indian markets.

Using satellite for connecting on calls is something that should be paid but after launching the iPhone 14 series, the Cupertino giant has promised that they will be providing the free SOS call feature via satellite completely free of cost for a period of two years activation but after two years you will be required to pay an amount for making calls.
