The sooner help arrives in an emergency, the more chances you have to save a precious human life. But if the victim himself is injured and is unable to send SOS, his i Phone will not leave the owner in trouble - Apple has developed technology for such cases.
Directly instant sending of an alarm signal is just a matter of technology, there are a lot of applications and scripts that send messages to a dozen addresses at the touch of a button. If you do not forget to include in the list, in addition to friends-parents, the number of the police, ambulance and the Ministry of Emergencies, then the chances of being found before the injuries cause complications are quite high. The problem is different - a person who is trapped in the middle of twisted iron or simply has lost consciousness cannot press the coveted button. Cupertino decided to tackle the problem closely and filed a patent application for what is called "A method for detecting emergency situations for mobile devices."
Basically, this is another small application that monitors direct and indirect signals indicating that something has happened that falls under the description of a disaster. An abrupt change in GPS coordinates during a fall from a height or emergency braking, a loud and dangerous sound recorded by the microphone of an iOS gadget, a strong impact to which the accelerometer reacted. Even pulling the headphones out of the jack may indicate that the smartphone and the owner have made a forced somersault in space. Of course, there are a lot of options when in such a situation it is better not to call anyone, in order to avoid embarrassment, so the system is made "smart".
After the trigger is triggered, a countdown timer is started - its duration is set by the user himself. For example, a fan of listening to music during parkour knows that after an unsuccessful jump he will be able to come to his senses and turn off the system after 10-15 seconds - a long time delay already means that the incident is serious. There can be several timers, in addition, the system continues to collect data and analyze it on the fly, trying to understand what is happening with the iPhone and, presumably, the person himself. Time is up - SMS messages have been sent to the specified addresses with automatically attached GPS coordinates of the scene.
The description of the patent application provides examples of the rational use of technology, for example, it is indispensable for single tourists. There is only one weak point: the system requires a working smartphone and access to communication systems, which can be a problem somewhere in the mountains or jungle.

If you call the presentation of the iPhone 12 from Apple a barrel of honey, then the change in the configuration of the smartphone became a fly in the ointment. In the box with the new model, you will not find any EarPods or a power adapter
The amount of RAM of the flagship or the number of cameras will surprise no one for a long time. Companies are trying to win with their original solutions - hardware or software. In the recently released Samsung Galaxy S10 line, one of the distinguishing features is the Wireless PowerShare function or "Reverse wireless charging"
