Apple has launched version iOS 10.2, another update of its mobile operating system known as iOS surprising its users with several news features including an emergency SOS button for its users in India and new TV app exclusively for US users.
If India has been set in your iPhone’s language and region and you have upgraded to iOS 10.2, you will mark the emergency SOS button appearing in your iPhone just below the software update section after you go to the general section in the setting.
You can set it up when the iPhone should automatically call emergency services number whether by pressing the power/ wake button three or five times.
India’s federal government has announced to introduce its own emergency services number in the form of 112 starting early next year.
The government had earlier announced that all mobile phones sold in India should come with GPS feature and a panic button to help the users in an emergency.
