IOS 12 will automatically share your iPhone's location with 911 centers

5 monthes ago   |   By TechCrunch

Apple this morning announced a new feature in iOS 12 which will automatically share your location with first responders when U.S. users dial 911 using their iPhone. The move is meant to address the problems with dialing emergency services from a cell phone, where outdated infrastructure has made it difficult to obtain a mobile caller's location quickly and accurately, Apple says.
Approximately 80 percent of 911 calls come from cell phones, however, which is why it's critical to fix this system.
In 2015, Apple launched HELO , which would estimate a caller's location using GPS and Wi-Fi...

Despite having unveiled iOS 12 and detailed the software at WWDC 2018 earlier this month, Apple is still announcing new features for the update. On Monday, Apple said in a press release that iOS 12 users will be able to automatically share their location with first responders when they call 911 from their iPhone. This will allow emergency services to locate callers in an instant without the caller having to provide any information over the phone.
Apple claims that around 80% of 911 calls come from mobile devices, but the "outdated" infrastructure being used by first responders makes it...

Apple has just announced a new iOS 12 feature for the US this fall: automatic location sharing with first responders when you dial 911 from your iPhone. The purpose of this added function is self-evident, as it aims to reduce emergency response times by streamlining the process of information gathering. Apple notes that approximately 80 percent of emergency calls in the United States are now made from a mobile device, however “outdated” infrastructure has made it difficult for 911 centers to quickly obtain a caller's location.

Apple is making a small change to the way that iPhones call 911 that could 'dramatically improve public safety'

5 monthes ago   |   By Business Insider

Apple is making a change to the way iPhones call 911.
For users, nothing will change on the surface. But behind the scenes, your iPhone will provide location data from cell towers, GPS, and Wi-Fi to the 911 call center over a new internet-based path.
Former FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler said it could "dramatically improve public safety" in a statement.
Starting later this year, the way that iPhones reach contact 911 will subtly change in a way that could let emergency assistance find the caller faster and more easily.
Apple is teaming up with RapidSOS to include a new way to transfer location...
