Apple on Tuesday was granted a patent for tech which could be used to covertly call the authorities in an emergency situation. The method, if implemented, could mean that emergency services would be just a secret tap away. The standard method of contacting emergency responders is “readily apparent to someone watching.” With the panic command method, a user could secretly call 911 when being compelled to unlock their iPhone by an attacker, for example. In that case, the tech would make it seem like the iPhone owner is simply complying with the attacker’s commands. Get the details here!
I love technology and how it enhances our lives! Just think, without the Apollo moon missions, we might not have calculators! Imagine!!
