First, you will require to wait for the satellite to connect with iPhone, which takes time. Then you will have to wait for the phone to confirm an emergency situation. Then follow another set of instructions to send the message.
On the flip side, Huawei’s satellite message feature is convenient and similar to a regular text SMS. This feature can be utilized by any Huawei smartphone user directly via the dedicated MeeTime app.

With a second-generation version, Huawei enabled two-way messaging. This allows the sender to also receive the reply in real time, which is fast and efficient. Such a feature is not available on iPhone or any other smartphone in the world.
Bruce Lee praised that this technology is a major breakthrough for the entire science and tech industry.
