Emergencies and dangerous situations can happen at any time, and you have to be ready – you have to do whatever it takes to keep yourself safe. You can call out or use your iPhone – check out the SOS feature to see how!
iPhone’s SOS Feature
The SOS feature on the ever-so-popular phone is fantastic for situations in which you must act smart and quickly. It’s a free feature, pre-installed, and allows you to call the authorities, an emergency contact, and even enter your medical information. You can even take action without unlocking the phone or fumbling around with the buttons.
How to Use the Feature
It’s extremely easy to use the SOS feature on the iPhone. It’s pre-installed onto the phone, so you don’t have to add it, and it only takes two steps to activate it and let it help you. For those with newer models, the two steps are as follows:
- Hold the phone’s side button on the right and the volume button on the left together, and the SOS menu will pop up. It only shows two options – sharing medical information or sending a distress call.
- Drag the emergency slider and your phone will immediately contact local authorities. A neat little feature to keep in mind is that if you keep holding the buttons without choosing any of the options, your phone will count down to an alert sound, after which it will call the authorities on its own.
For those with an older version of the phone, the steps differ, so keep these in mind when you want to send out an alert that you may be in danger.
- Press the side or the top button quickly, five times. This will activate the menu with the option to contact authorities or show your medical information.
- Drag the slider across the SOS options so your phone can contact the local authorities.
Adding Emergency Contacts
Add some emergency contacts to the SOS feature of your iPhone and make sure to keep them up-to-date. Your phone will alert those people when you’re in danger. Here are the easy steps to add as many contacts as you need to:
- Find the Settings section on the phone.
- Find the Emergency SOS option and open it up.
- To edit, press Edit Emergency Contacts in Health.
- Press Edit at the top right corners and add your contacts.
Adding Medical Information
This option is just as easy as adding emergency contacts and it’s from the Medical ID section on your phone. Here is the following information you can add:
- Medical Conditions
- Medical Notes
- Allergies and Reactions
- Blood Type
- Organ Donor
- Height and Weight
It’s important to always keep yourself safe, and if you have an iPhone, you can utilize it to help you when you’re in a sticky situation. Enter all your information and perfect calling the authorities through the excellent SOS feature!
There’s something magical about being privy to details about royal life and what happens behind closed doors. Everyone secretly wants to know what cake they ate at the wedding or how Prince Harry could have been labeled as ‘naughty’ when his life, especially as a teenager, was a little more colorful. As it turns out, royal or not – Prince Harry is actually down to earth and wants normal things out of life, and details from his novel, Spare, prove that!
Neither Brother Blessed the Marriage
As it turns out, Prince Harry and his brother, Prince William, the Duke of Cambridge, had one request for their father. After Princess Diana, the boys’ mother, King Charles III met Camilla and brought her into the royal family. William and Harry were delighted that their father was happy and was alright with her being around, but they asked him not to marry her – begged him, in fact. Although, in 2005, the couple had a small civil union ceremony.
Meghan Wore a Different Crown
In his novel, Spare, Princess Harry shares details of his family’s relationship with Meghan Markle and one detail he shares many might not have known before the book. At her wedding, Meghan was supposed to wear the crown Princess Diana wore, but after searching through a private collection alongside the late Queen Elizabeth II, she chose a different one. Harry mentions how the press twisted everything to turn it into a bigger drama than it was.
Meghan and Harry Furnished From Ikea
In Spare, Prince Harry recalls how different his and Meghan’s cottage was, compared to his brother’s lavish home that he shared with Kate, the Princess of Wales, and their children. He mentions how they purchased lamps and discount furniture from Meghan’s credit card, as his card was controlled by his father, King Charles III.
Spare Paints King Charles III as Tender
Countless headlines and the TV show The Crown portrays King Charles III as not such a great father, and the public was inclined to believe so. However, stories in the book written by Prince Harry portray him as tender. It mentioned how he would refer to Harry as a ‘darling son’ and cared about what was happening in his life. He also showed gentleness and love toward Meghan, which was heartwarming!
As intriguing and juicy as the royal life may seem to all of us – there is one thing that Spare reminded us of — the royals, more or less, are regular people with regular dreams and hopes, just like Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, who officially left the royal life for something a lot simpler and down-to-Earth.
