Globalstar shares (NYSEAMERICAN: GSAT) jumped 16% following an announcement that the company will be the satellite operator for the new emergency SOS service for Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL).
The announcement comes right on the heels of Apple’s hardware event that announced new iPhones featuring a new feature called Emergency SOS via Satellite, which can connect to emergency services even when the phone’s user is outside of cellular or Wi-Fi range.
In a filing, Globalstar said that it will serve as the service provider and that it has completed several milestones for the service ranging from initial feasibility up to “rigorous” in-field system testing with Apple.
Apple is expected to begin emergency services in the fourth quarter.

Should I buy Globalstar shares today?
