Tech Talk Rewind: “911 What’s Your Emergency?”

  • Posted by: Jeff Bromley

This week’s Tech Talk Rewind reprises Jeff’s review of Apple’s Medical ID & Emergency SOS features from iOS 11. These features are well designed and easy to set up and use.

iOS 11 Emergency Features: 

  • Medical ID – set up your emergency contacts and pertinent health information right on the Apple Health app that is already available on your iPhone or Apple Watch through iOS 11
  • Emergency SOS – simplifies the process for contacting your local emergency number with your iPhone or Apple Watch

The following links help walk you through the process of setting up your Health app on your iPhone. The process is a little different for X users vs. 8 and 8+ …but simple nonetheless.

If you have an Apple Watch, your health data and emergency contact information is automatically integrated and therefore accessible by tapping the bottom button as seen in the Tech-Talk video.

Thanks for watching Tech-Talk.
