It is not for sounding like a grandfather, but maintaining a medium-high level of security in many countries of the world is one of the tasks that become more complicated with the passing of generations. No matter how much technology we have at this time, if we are not comfortable, we will never feel safe.
And as security is more a sensation than something real, here we are going to leave you a trick of your iPhone with which you can feel much more protected when walking on the street.
This function was created precisely for those moments in which you feel in danger but you know that if you open your mouth, you will make the situation worse. You feel anguished because you can not call anyone, and you do not have enough time to unlock your iPhone and write a message. Do not be alarmed, ** Apple has given us a solution to this **.
With the SOS Emergency feature, your iPhone will call emergency services in your country, and also send a text message warning you could be in danger of the contacts you have selected. Without a doubt, it is a key point.
How to make it work on our iPhone
To activate this function on your iPhone, just follow these steps:
- Go to the Settings app.
- Swipe down to find the SOS Emergency option.
- Once inside, activate the option Automatic call.
- If you want to add emergency contacts, you can do it from that same screen.
- Finally, make sure you deactivate the Sound option during counting because if you do not, your iPhone will begin to emit a very loud and annoying sound that will eliminate any attempt to go unnoticed.
And that’s it. If you want to make this feature work, you only have to press the lock button five times in a row and your iPhone will start a countdown to call emergencies.
