Apple Launches Roadside Assistance Service via Satellite

Apple Event

Apple continues to push the boundaries of innovation with its latest announcement during the “Wonderlust” event: a new roadside assistance service via satellite. This service, built on the same technology as the Emergency SOS via Satellite feature introduced last year with the iPhone 14, aims to provide help when you find yourself in a predicament with your car and have no cellular or Wi-Fi service available.

Deniz Teoman, the vice president of hardware systems engineering at Apple, explained that users will be able to text roadside assistance and select the type of help they need. During the event, Apple showcased an iPhone screen displaying options such as “locked out,” “no fuel or charge,” and “flat tire.” The intuitive interface will then guide users to connect to a satellite and share their location information with a roadside assistance provider. They will then receive direct messages and prompt dispatch of help to their exact location, equipped with the right tools to get them moving again.

“It’s like having a guardian angel in your pocket,” says Teoman. “No matter where you are, if you run into car trouble, help is just a few taps away.”

This new service comes as part of Apple’s efforts to provide a comprehensive ecosystem of features and services to its users. While roadside service is covered by an AAA membership, it is also available as a standalone service for non-members. With this addition, Apple further cements itself as a company that not only delivers top-notch devices but also provides essential services to enhance the user experience.

The introduction of the roadside assistance service via satellite is just one of the exciting announcements made during the Apple “Wonderlust” event. In case you missed it, here are some highlights:
