Connectivity: In addition to the 5G network, the iPhone 14/14 Plus also supports eSIM. Of course, even if Apple wants to get rid of physical SIM cards entirely, that won't happen anytime soon. Only the US model of the iPhone 14 has confirmed that it will no longer have a SIM card tray in favour of full eSIM.

Satellite SOS function: The iPhone 14 can send out an emergency signal via satellite, which is an important addition to cellular mobile networks.

Apple designs and builds custom components and software to enable the iPhone's antenna to connect to the satellite, which users must point directly at the satellite. A custom short text compression system reduced the size of information by three times.

The compression algorithm makes it possible to send and receive information within 15 seconds. And in collaboration with emergency specialists, the phone has preset a variety of emergency situations for users to quickly choose from.

Apple has set up relay centers to get text messages from users and forward them to emergency providers that only accept calls. There are hundreds of staff involved.
