The emergency emergency function integrated into iOS 11 is helping to create rescue routes: On Twitter, the police asked Toronto to stop trying the "emergency SOS" innovation – "it works well!" There are many test calls blocking the emergency lines, the Canadian police department.
The emergency call function allows an emergency call to be made by push-button printing. In this case, the local rescue service can be contacted automatically at the location, or emergency contacts can be informed about this and the user's location is transmitted to the rescue service. On iPhones up to the iPhone 7, the standby key must be pressed five times in succession, and the user then strok his finger over a slider – after a short countdown, the call takes place.

In the settings for "Emergency SOS", users determine whether the call is made automatically at a rescue control center.
Emergency call SOS also switches Touch ID and Face ID
The emergency SOS key combination has a further function: it temporarily limes the biometric unlocking mechanisms Touch ID and Face ID – the user does not have to enter his passcode again. This is to protect the iPhone from being unlocked by third parties against the will of the user – either by placing the finger or by holding the iPhone X in front of the owner's face.
Earlier this year, Apple had patched a vulnerability in iOS, which allows an abuse of the dial-up function: Prior to this, an 18-year-old American had published a link to Twitter, which, after tapping on the iPhone, Emergency number 911. The action apparently led to a disturbance of the 911 emergency system in several cities.
