Apple patents discreet 911 calling tech for iPhone
from USA Today
Apple filed a patent recently for a more discreet way to contact 911 using fingerprint technology. Most smartphones can contact emergency services without being unlocked. However, the patent says, it could be "readily apparent to someone watching" and "may not be practical." If the patented technology is used in future iPhones, users would predetermine a fingerprint or a sequence of touches to contact emergency services.
