I've always been SO confused as to why the police dispatchers always ask for your location when you call 911.. With how connected our phones are to EVERYTHING, I guess I just assumed that our location was shared with everyone and their greasy granny now-a-days!
According to the National Emergency Number Association, 240-million such calls are made a year and more than 80% come from mobile devices..
Apple is stepping up and as part of their iOS 12 update, Apple is giving users a 911 first responder service.
The feature will be able to calculate a caller’s location from data collected from Wi-Fi access points, nearby cell towers and GPS. First responders will get that information and get to you faster.
I LOVE THIS... it could be the difference in life or death and could totally shave off MINUTES!
