The hope here is that Apple jumpstarts a shift within the wireless industry that will allow emergency responders to automatically locate mobile callers in most - if not all - scenarios. "We are excited to work with Apple to provide first responders a new path for accurate, device-based caller location using transformative Next Generation 911 technology".
Under a collaboration with startup company RapidSOS, Apple's current Hybridized Emergency Location system will integrate with 911 centers' existing software.
The feature is created to give first responders faster and more accurate information, helping to reduce the time it takes for emergency services to arrive.
Kim Jong-un visits China after Trump summit
On Tuesday, the Chinese state broadcaster CCTV showed Kim and Xi holding talks at the Great Hall of the People in Beijing . A motorcade including sedans, minibuses, motorcycles and a stretch limo with a golden emblem was seen leaving the airport.
Apple's announcement essentially marks the company's decision to supply iOS users' location data to RapidSOS' "NG911 Clearinghouse".
Apple's iOS 12 will arrive in the fall.
According to the National Emergency Number Association (NEMA), over 240 million calls are made to 911 per year, approximately 80 per cent of which are made from mobile devices, but "outdated, landline-era infrastructure" makes it hard for emergency centres to obtain a mobile caller's location.
According to Apple, its HELO system is able to identify your location using cell towers and a variety of other data sources from your phone, including GPS and Wi-Fi access points.
Trump ‘planning’ to call North Korea’s Kim on Sunday
President Trump accomplished nothing in Singapore , if you want to be factual about it. "We get along very well", he said. Recently, Park filmed a video op-ed imploring Trump to do the right thing when he meets Kim Jong Un .
Apple is trying to solve a problem caused by the technological mismatch between a 50-year-old system built for landlines and today's increasingly sophisticated smartphones. Apple is working to speed things up for the full range of devices supported by iOS 12. iPhones and iPads will now be better than ever at delivering optimal performance while also prolonging battery life. It does this, as you've probably guessed, using the iPhone's readily-available data connection to the internet.
There are a mix of changes when it comes to sharing and managing photos in iOS 12.
"This is going to save a lot of lives", Wheeler said.
Trump orders Pentagon to create US ‘Space Force’
It's also worth noting that the Air Force already has a Space Command division that heads military operations beyond the planet. In March , in a speech to a group of marines, he said the " space force " started as a joke, but then became a serious idea.
