iFixit: iPhone’s SOS via satellite feature uses the Qualcomm X65 modem and custom hardware

iFixit is busy tearing apart the new iPhone 14 models and has discovered a Qualcomm X65 modem inside. However, that isn’t enough to enable the new Emergency SOS via satellite service that was introduced with the new models.

“iPhone 14 includes custom radio frequency components, and new software designed entirely by Apple, that together enable Emergency SOS via satellite on new iPhone 14 models,” Apple told Reuters.

Very interesting. Check out our latest tone…
