Emergency satellite on iPhone 14 earned in the US and Canada

Apple announced that satellite emergency communications for iPhone 14 models will be available in the US and Canada starting November 15. Now the owners of these smartphones can send an SOS signal even if they are out of cellular or Wi-Fi coverage. The transcript of such a message can also be sent to the contacts specified for this case (up to 10 contacts in iMessage). In addition, to share your location data with friends or relatives, if there are no conventional communication networks, the traveler may not even be in an emergency. This can be done through the Find My app.

To use the emergency satellite function, you need to fill out a short questionnaire, indicating the most important data for rescue services: what exactly happened, how many people need help, whether someone is injured, etc. This questionnaire, along with information about the user’s location (including altitude), iPhone battery level, and Medical ID profile (if enabled) will be sent to emergency services. If necessary, the user can send additional messages that will help dispatchers better understand the situation and provide the necessary assistance.

Keep in mind that satellites move fast, have low bandwidth and are located far from the Earth, so even short messages can take several minutes to transmit, Apple notes. But thanks to the company’s text compression algorithm, which can reduce the average message size by 300%, in clear weather, an SOS signal via satellite can be sent in just 15 seconds. In order for an emergency message to be guaranteed to reach, you need to manually point your smartphone at the nearest satellite – instructions on the screen will help with this. iPhone 14 owners can test “satellite SOS” using a demo: connect to a real satellite in range, but without actually calling emergency services.

The new feature is available on iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Plus, iPhone 14 Pro, and iPhone 14 Pro Max and requires iOS 16.1. Those who purchased a smartphone before the launch of the satellite service will receive two years of free service. Apple did not say anything about what the cost of the service will be after that. Recall that Globalstar became the provider of satellite communications for this service. In addition to residents of the United States and Canada, in the near future, iPhone 14 owners in France, Germany, Ireland and the United Kingdom will receive access to the “satellite SOS” – the service will be launched there in December.

For iPhone 15, Apple will purchase the latest Sony sensors, which have no analogues on the market

For iPhone 15 Apple will purchase the latest Sony sensors

Sony will supply its state-of-the-art image sensors to Apple, which will be used in the iPhone 15 line of smartphones.

For iPhone 15, Apple will purchase the latest Sony sensors, which have no analogues on the market

The new Sony Semiconductor Solutions sensor has roughly doubled the saturation signal per pixel compared to conventional image sensors. This matches the description of the new technology that Sony talked about last year.

This is the industry’s first multi-layer CMOS sensor. While the photodiodes and pixel transistors of conventional CMOS sensors are formed in the same layer, they are in different layers in the new sensor. This allows you to expand the dynamic range, increase the photosensitivity and reduce the noise level.

Apparently, this technology has not yet found application in any of Sony’s sensors. Whether Apple will be the first to receive such sensors is unknown. It is also unclear whether they will be used in all iPhone 15 or only in older models. Given the trends of recent years, as well as all the rumors about Apple’s intention to separate younger and older iPhones more strongly, it is likely that only older models will get new sensors, or even exclusively iPhone 15 Ultra.

These numbers will begin with the code +888, and it will be impossible to call them. They are designed specifically to work with Telegram and are used to receive confirmation codes. It is not yet reported whether there will be rooms with a different code.

The price, terms of sale or other data about the system are also not reported. However, it is possible that the scheme will work the same way as with nicknames that are already sold on Fragment.

Note that the site has already found the most expensive nickname – @news. They paid $1.76 million for it. The name of the buyer is not disclosed.

Even the cheapest Samsung Galaxy A series phone will look

Insider Evan Blass has published a high-quality rendering of one of the most affordable Samsung phones – the Galaxy A14. The front panel of the novelty with a tear-shaped screen cutout and a large “chin” looks typical for a “state employee”, but the back panel with three island modules is very reminiscent of what we will see in the Galaxy S23 flagship phones.

In 2023, Samsung is scaling up the flagship Galaxy S23 design to almost all of its phones, but some (like Ice Universe insider) are calling it a mistake. And while low-end users may be flattered by the resemblance to a flagship, it’s unlikely to work the other way around.

According to Evan Blass, the Galaxy A14 will have a large screen with a diagonal of 6.8 inches, but its resolution will be small – HD+. The phone also has a 5000 mAh battery. The front camera will have a sensor with a resolution of 13 megapixels, the resolution of the main sensor of the main camera is 50 megapixels.

Evan Blass has previously been noted for many truthful leaks. At one time, he published accurate images of the Sony Xperia 5 II, Galaxy Note20, Galaxy Z Fold 2, Galaxy Tab S7, Galaxy Watch 3 and Samsung Galaxy Buds Live, Xiaomi 12 before their official premiere.
