However, unlike HUAWEI, the iPhone 14 can achieve two-way communication, but only in emergencies. It will contact the rescue agency directly, and can communicate with each other when there is a problem. Although the HUAWEI Mate50 series can only send information in one direction, it can customize the sending object.

Even if the other party is not a HUAWEI mobile phone, they can receive a message with specific coordinates, and can also send custom text, which is very convenient to report safety.

In a nutshell, the patent is that users can communicate directly with satellite networks, etc., after equipping the transmitter or receiver. If the patent is officially implemented, it will significantly improve the iPhone’s signal problems.

The iPhone signal problem has been criticized by some users for several reasons, including the baseband form used by the iPhone itself, the design of the antenna, and the system. Although the latest iPhone 14 series has optimized the mobile phone signal, it is still at a disadvantage compared to mobile phones with generally recognized signals.
