The world's richest man Elon Musk said on Thursday that SpaceX has held talks with Apple about partnering on iPhone 14 satellite connectivity.

"We’ve had some promising conversations with Apple about Starlink connectivity. iPhone team is obv super smart. For sure, closing link from space to phone will work best if phone software & hardware adapt to space-based signals vs Starlink purely emulating cell tower," Musk tweeted in response to another user expressing hope the two companies will partner on the matter.

On Wednesday, Apple announced its latest iPhone line-up which includes a safety service called Emergency SOS via Satellite that can connect to emergency services even if the user is outside of cellular or wi-fi range in the United States and Canada.
