24 January 2018 – Apple announced today that iPhone’s next update iOS 11.3 – available this spring – will support Advanced Mobile Location (AML). This technology is used when an emergency call is being placed to send accurate location data of the caller in distress directly to the emergency services.
EENA congratulates Apple for this great achievement that will make people safer and save lives. In the countries where AML is already operational on smartphones, many lives have been saved thanks to this technology (see here). The upcoming iPhone update is therefore a major improvement in the daily work of emergency and rescue services.
