Did You Know Your IPhone Has This Emergency Feature?
The IOS Emergency feature on your iPhone allows you to handle an emergency situation quickly and in some cases discreetly.
About two months ago I was outside of the mall for a live broadcast with Lil Zim, as she was about to go on live I heard a loud screeching and crash. I looked over the hill and saw a car flipped over with two people inside, they were stuck. Instinctively grabbed my phone to dial 911... apparently, my thumbprint didn't want to recognize me that day... I was a little shaken and kept messing up my password on my phone... after a minute of I HATE YOU PHONE thoughts I got in and called 911. Everyone ended up being okay, a few scrapes and the police got there in a very fast time frame, but I was a little upset about how long it took to call.
My friends, Apple has a quick fix for this problem.
If you have an iPhone 7 or earlier this could be a game-changer. The little button on the right side of your phone, click it five times. You will have a screen that pops up for an SOS Emergency call that links to your local emergency number. You just swipe the screen and it calls.
This quick feature could be a lifesaver. It is easy, quick and discrete. If you find your self in an emergency accident or worse situation keep this in mind as a fast route for help.
