3. Which iPhones feature Dynamic Island?

A. iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max feature Dynamic Island. The regular iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus don’t feature the Dynamic island as they have the broader notch. So, iPhone 13 and previous iPhones don’t have Dynamic Island.

Although Dynamic Island is a software feature, it is not an iOS 16 feature that will be part of all iPhones with iOS 16.

4. Which iPhones have the satellite connectivity feature? How does the iPhone satellite feature work?

A. iPhone 14 series introduced satellite connectivity support. Apple has worked up a software solution that enables the iPhone antennas to connect to satellites. On the iPhone 14 models, you will see an Emergency SOS via Satellite UI. When you lose cellular or WiFi connectivity, you can make use of this feature to send messages and manually share Find My location with your contacts. However, for this thing to work, you need to have a clear sky and the iPhone will guide you in the direction you have to hold the phone. Even though the message sizes are compressed by Apple, it would still take about 15 seconds to 1 minute to send messages depending on how clear the sky is. Along with the messages, your medical ID would be shared. And you can’t just send anything. Rather you have to respond to some close-ended multiple choice questions.

The message will be first tried to be sent to the carrier provider but if the transmission fails, it will be sent to an Apple relay center (with live agents) which will send it further to the telecom provider.

American English, American Spanish, and French Canadian are the languages that are supported by Emergency SOS via Satellite UI. Only Latin characters are supported. It is expected to release as part of a later iOS release, perhaps iOS 16.2 in select markets like the US.

5. Which all iPhones support crash detection?

A. All iPhone 14 models support the new Crash Detection feature. iPhones are equipped with a new dual-core accelerometer that can detect up to 256Gs of G-force. There’s also a new high dynamic range gyroscope. Thanks to these, the iPhone can identify when you are in a car crash  (be it from the front, back, side, or rollover). It first asks you if you want to connect to an emergency service. If you don’t respond in 10 seconds, then it automatically alerts the emergency contacts as well as rescue services of your exact location.

6. Which iPhones support eSIM?

A. All iPhone 14 models in the US support dual eSIMs only. You can store up to 8 eSIM numbers on all iPhone 14 models but only two numbers can be active at a time. You can also transfer eSIMs between iPhones (with iOS 16) as long as your carrier supports it.
