Strongy disagree. Just because it doesn't have feature parity with a dedicated PLB device doesn't mean it's "underwhelming". In the coming years this technology with undoubtedly save countless lives. This is one of the biggest advancements in consumer phone technology in a decade. I won't be buying an iPhone either. (My Pixel 6 has a way better camera) but this is huge and will only get better with time as more manufacturers copy Apple's innovation. I am quite whelmed

hopefully it ushers in much better phone satcom over the next few years. And it probably will save a few lives. But for those of with inreaches... this is not nearly on the same level of functionality. Not yet.
