Apple’s Emergency SOS via satellite feature on the iPhone has helped to save two tourists who got lost in the mountains of Italy.

During an outing in the Apennine Mountains, the hikers got lost in an area without a cellphone signal, reports AppleInsider.

Luckily, they had an iPhone 14 which provided them the option to call for help via a satellite text message.

They were then rescued by the local fire department.

“In May, Apple’s Emergency SOS feature played a crucial part in the rescue of 10 hikers who got lost in Santa Paula Canyon’s ‘Last Chance’ area,” the report said.
