Among the innumerable news that brings the new version of the mobile operating system of Manzana It is worth highlighting one that users value very positively for the usefulness that may result in case of emergencies. And is that iOS 11.3 now supports the Advanced Mobile Location (AML) feature whereby the mobile can send the user's location to emergency services when someone calls.
AML is currently not supported in the United States, nor does it do it in other countries such as Spain where in the last few months there was a stir, having to clarify the emergency services that there is no agreement with the company of the launch of a service of this type. However, the good news is that in some countries it already works, as is the case in the United Kingdom, Belgium, New Zealand, Lithuania or the Netherlands. The feature activates the Wifi and GPS services when someone calls an emergency number and then sends a text message with the precise location of the person or device making the call. Undoubtedly, this helps to determine where people are, even if they cannot indicate it precisely. All phones Android with operating system version Gingerbread 2.3 or higher, are compatible with this AML service.
Manzana It has previously implemented other similar functions aimed at helping in emergencies, such as the so-called SOS Emergencies which calls the local police numbers. Users can also add emergency contacts that will be alerted by text message and with the precise location of the user. It also counts from previous versions of iOS with the medical identification function, which allows to know the basic medical information of a user and details of some treatment without having to unlock the mobile, including allergies, conditions, weight and medications.
