When Apple's IOS 12 is released later this year, callers to the 911 emergency service will have their location automatically sent to 911 dispatch. This news comes as the FCC will require phone carries to more accurately locate callers to within 50 meters by 2021.#Apple #news— FYI 🗃 (@itsfyi) June 18, 2018
As part of their iOS 12 update, Apple is giving users a 911 first responder service. Yes, they’ll be using your data, but it could be a matter of life or death...so not such a bad trade.
The new 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.
