We have seen a number of the new features that will be coming to the iPhone and iPad in iOS 11 and now we have some details on another.Apple is changing the way the Emergency SOS feature works on the iPhone.
When you press the sleep/wake button on the iPhone 5 times in a row, a new Emergency SOS menu is shown, this can be seen in the picture below.
When this is done a new screen is displayed with your Medical ID, and also an Emergency SOS option to that you can make an emergency call.
Once the sleep/wake button has been pressed five times, TouchID is then disabled and the only way to unlock the handset is with the passcode.
Apple have not given an exact release date for iOS 11 as yet, We are expecting the software to be released some time in September along with the new iPhone 8.
