The iPhone have the role of emergency calls for many years even with the lock screen, but with this new update, iPhone users will have an additional form of activate the service when they are in trouble and can’t make calls as normal, as it was done so far.
At the moment, this feature is only available to developers who have access to the IOS 10.2 BETA 2 and will be a matter of weeks that I get to the general public, especially seeing the pace of updates to ios users we are suffering because of the numerous bugs IOS 10.
