iOS 12 and 911 Calls

Apple announced that iOS 12 will allow iPhones to automatically share location data with first responders through 911 calls. Apple is using a technology that estimated a mobile 911 caller’s location using cell towers and GPS. This will allow for quicker response times when it’s needed most. Only the 911 center will have access to your location during the call. This is another nice feature not talked about at WWDC that I think is very useful, even if you don’t necessarily want to be put in the situation where you need to use it.
