Apple ignores requests for the inclusion in the iPhone Advanced Mobile Location (Advanced Mobile Location). This was written by The Next Web.
This feature in the system will give emergency services an extremely precise location, if you make an emergency call with an iPhone. And this will considerably reduce the response time of rescue services.
Advance Mobile Location (hereinafter AML) is already implemented in Android and according to Google, saved dozens of lives.
Why AML is important? Most emergency calls are made today from a smartphone, and the lack of this feature on the iPhone puts Apple at a disadvantage. The system more precisely in 4000 times as compared with the current and it is fully automated: the phone when the emergency call itself includes a satellite navigation system and Wi-Fi, analyzes the data and sends them by SMS to the emergency services.
European Association of ambulance (hereinafter CSPA) has asked Apple and Google about two years ago. The second agreed to cooperate with the system already works in Android smartphones.
Apple added the function “SOS” on the iPhone and Apple Watch, but not enough. Now AML is implemented and working in Estonia, Sweden and Belgium. In the countries satisfied with the result, but emphasize the importance that Apple has implemented the technology in their devices.
