    Apple has officially launched its long-awaited Emergency SOS via satellite in the United States and Canada, allowing iPhone 14 users to send text messages in the event of an emergency while outside of cellular and Wi-Fi coverage. The messages are sent in about 15 seconds if the user has a direct view of the sky and horizon, but the call for help could take longer if there are obstacles such as forests or mountains in the area. While pricing for the service has yet to be revealed, it will be free to users for two years - industry experts speculate Apple wants to see how it is used before setting a cost. The service is possible through 24 Globalstar satellites, in which users point their iPhones to the sky to connect with one of the devices that then beams their message to the closest dispatch. While the Tuesday rollout is only in the US and Canada, Emergency SOS will be available in France, Germany, Ireland, and the United Kingdom in December.

On Tuesday, the company unveiled emergency SOS via satellite, which allows users to text emergency services when they're off the grid, whether camping in the mountains or driving in a remote area at night. The service is available for iPhone 14 customers and is free for the first two years. Apple announced the emergency feature in September, when it debuted the iPhone 14 lineup. To enable the service, Apple said last week it would spend $450 million with U.S. companies, with the majority of the money going to Globalstar, a Louisiana-based satellite operator. An iOS 16 software update released on Tuesday will allow anyone with the newest iPhone model to use the service. They do so by pointing their phone to the sky and connecting to one of 24 Globalstar satellites in low Earth orbit. Apple doesn't want users testing the service out for non-emergences. The company offered...
    A LIFE-SAVING iPhone feature may be just days from being switched on. Apple documents suggest that the long-awaited Emergency SOS via Satellite will be activated very soon. 1Emergency SOS via Satellite could save your life when tragedy strikesCredit: Apple It lets you get in touch with emergency services when you've got no regular phone signal. In an Apple support document spotted by MacRumors, Apple said that the feature would "be available with an iOS 16 software update coming in November 2022". The latest version is iOS 16.1, which came out in late October – and iOS 16.2 should follow in December. So Apple watchers expect that we'll get the new feature in iOS 16.1.1, which is already being tested. The new Emergency SOS via satellite feature may be included in the update, but that's not been confirmed. Apple says the iPhone 14's satellite features are expected to go live in November.

    Sofia Pitt, CNBC The race to provide high-speed internet from satellites is well underway – but another, more ambitious competition, to connect directly from space to devices like smartphones, began in earnest earlier this year. The potential untapped market — which hinges on, but extends beyond, sending a text via space — is spurring a tale of two strategies: Those putting specialized antennae in phones, versus those putting high-powered antennae on the satellites themselves. For some companies, it means billions spent on what could end up being a losing approach. "The satellite industry is really niche and – if they can tap into connecting billions of smartphones – they can start talking about market sizes that are way greater than they've ever been able to address before. Everything before has been in the millions," Caleb Henry, senior analyst at boutique research firm Quilty Analytics, told CNBC.

    OWNERS of the new iPhone 14 may soon be able to test a life-saving feature. The new models offer a special trick called Emergency SOS via satellite. 1Emergency SOS via Satellite could save your life when tragedy strikesCredit: Apple It lets you get in touch with emergency services when you've got no regular phone signal. Of course, it's impossible to try out ahead of time without actually contacting emergency responders – which isn't ideal. But Apple now appears to be working on a way for users to safely practice using the iPhone feature before they need to rely on it for real. In the test version for the upcoming iOS 16.1 feature, a reference to Satellite Connection Demo has appeared – as spotted by 9to5Mac.

    SpaceX is teaming up with mobile provider T-Mobile to use the private space company's satellite networks to expand its network without adding cell towers. The phone network announced "Coverage Above and Beyond" Thursday evening at a public event. The new plan will exist alongside T-Mobile's current plans and use SpaceX's Starlink network to serve those in remote areas where cell service is unavailable. TWITTER FOUNDER REVEALS 'BIGGEST REGRET' "We've always thought differently about what it means to keep customers connected, and that's why we're working with the best to deliver coverage above and beyond anything customers have ever seen before," said Mike Sievert, CEO of T-Mobile, in a press release. "The important thing about this is that it means there are no dead zones anywhere in the world for your cell phone," said SpaceX Chief Engineer Elon Musk. "We're incredibly excited to do this with T-Mobile." The satellites will use T-Mobile's mid-band spectrum, which the company acquired via its purchase of Sprint, to create the new network. This plan will build upon a new...
    Amy Schumer revealed that she wanted Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to appear during the Academy Awards Show she will be hosting next Sunday, but that producers of the show declined her request. Schumer recently sat for an interview with Drew Barrymore, where she discussed her plans for co-hosting the show. A teaser video posted by Entertainment Tonight Canada included the detail of her wanting the Ukrainian president to appear at the Oscars. ET Canda reports: “I think it’s a great opportunity to at least comment on a couple of things. I have some jokes that kind of highlight the sort of current condition,” added Schumer. “I mean, there are so many awful things happening that it seems hard to focus on which one.” In that regard, Schumer revealed that she tried to pitch Oscar producers on the idea of having Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy appear via satellite. “I actually pitched, I wanted to find a way to have Zelenskyy satellite in or make a tape or something just because there are so many eyes on the Oscars,” she said, noting...
    BERLIN (AP) — A German media regulator has ruled that Russian state broadcaster RT must cease broadcasting its German-language programs in the country, saying that it lacks the necessary permission. The ZAK regulator, which decides on applications from private organizations to broadcast nationwide in Germany, said Tuesday that no application has been made or granted for RT DE and it has “no other permit that is legitimate under European law.” RT DE started broadcasting its programs via various channels, including its website and satellite, in mid-December. It has pointed to a Serbian license. German media regulators then opened proceedings. RT DE said Tuesday that its broadcasting is in line with European law, and said its Serbian broadcasting license, granted on Dec. 6, is valid until 2029. It said it will challenge the regulator’s decision in court. There have been tensions between Germany and Russia over RT DE in recent months. In September, YouTube shut two German RT channels in a move centering on alleged coronavirus misinformation, a decision that drew threats of retaliation from Russia. Last year, Luxembourg rejected...
    BERLIN (AP) — Luxembourg has rejected an application by Russian state broadcaster RT for a license to distribute its German-language service via satellite. Authorities in the grand duchy said Friday they concluded that Luxembourg wasn’t the right jurisdiction to rule on the request because RT’s German service is based in Berlin and a significant part of its workforce is in Germany. RT, previously known as Russia Today, already provides a German offering online but so far it hasn’t been able to get a license to broadcast in Germany via a terrestrial or satellite signal. In a statement, RT said its lawyers were reviewing the decision. German security services have said they consider RT’s German service to be a propaganda arm of the Russian state.

    In this article CFVA satellite image of the stuck container ship Ever Given in Egypt's Suez Canal, taken on March 25, 2021.SatellogicSatellite Earth imagery specialist Satellogic is preparing to go public, announcing on Tuesday that it will be the latest in a string of space companies merging with SPACs. Satellogic is merging with special purpose acquisition company CF Acquisition Corp. V – a SPAC sponsored by Cantor Fitzgerald that trades under the ticker CFV. The deal gives the space company a $1.1 billion equity valuation and is expected to close early in the fourth quarter, resulting in Satellogic listing on the Nasdaq under ticker SATL. A SPAC or special purpose acquisition company raises capital in an initial public offering and uses the proceeds to purchase a private firm and take it public. Satellogic has 17 imagery satellites in orbit so far, but that is a fraction of the number it needs to bring in projected annual revenue of nearly $800 million within four years. "We're going to grow the full [satellite] constellation by 2025 to 300 satellites, to get daily...
    In-flight internet access for airline passengers may be provided via laser systems as early as the middle of next year, the European Space Agency has claimed.  The 'UltraAir' concept stems from a collaboration between satellite manufacturer Airbus and the Netherlands Organisation for Applied Scientific Research.  The laser-based tech could replace existing satcom radio-frequency systems, whose bands are experiencing bottlenecks as demand for satellite services grows. Ground-based tests of the system are expected to begin later this year in Germany, with the first in-flight trial, connecting down to Earth, expected for early-2022.  It is expected that UltraAir will ultimately be able to reach data transmission rates of several gigabits-per-second and will be nearly impossible to jam or intercept. This also makes the system good for military applications — such as relaying data collected by drones and linking aircraft systems to form an 'air combat cloud'. The narrow beam of laser communication which makes it hard to intercept also means that terminals can be lighter and less power-intensive than radio. UltraAir will also form part of the European Space Agency (ESA)'s 'ScyLight' programme, which...

    A satellite-controlled machine gun with "artificial intelligence" was used in last week's assassination of a top nuclear scientist in Iran, the deputy commander of the Revolutionary Guards told local media Sunday. Mohsen Fakhrizadeh was driving on a highway outside Iran's capital Tehran with a security detail of 11 guards on November 27, when the machine gun "zoomed in" on his face and fired 13 rounds, said rear-admiral Ali Fadavi. The machine gun was mounted on a Nissan pickup and "focused only on martyr Fakhrizadeh's face in a way that his wife, despite being only 25 centimetres away, was not shot," Mehr news agency quoted him as saying. A photo released by the semi-official Fars News Agency shows the scene where Mohsen Fakhrizadeh was killed in Absard, a small city just east of the capital, Tehran, Iran, on November 27, 2020. Fars News Agency via AP It was being "controlled online" via a satellite and used an "advanced camera and artificial intelligence" to make the target, he claimed.
