Toronto Police Urging iPhone Users Not to Test iOS 11’s 911 Feature

Toronto Police Tweets Not to Try Apple\'s New Emergency Calling Feature on iOS 11

Apple has introduced a set of exceptional features with iOS 11 for iPhone and iPad devices. Among these features, one allows users to make an emergency call by pressing the lock button five times in a row as a result of which the device goes into the sleep mode and allow users to contact emergency services.

The feature has been added in order to give a quick access to the users at times when unlocking the phone the normal way won’t work. It was an ideal move by Apple; however, a number of users have decided to try the feature which resulted in a flood of calls to the Toronto Police. The officials then reacted through a tweet urging users not to test the new iOS 11’s 911 feature. The tweet appeared as:

 

"Toronto Police receiving many test calls that tie up our 911 lines," reads the tweet, which includes a poster that says "Please DO NOT try it out!"

As per the tweet, many users have been testing the new feature, as a result of which the officials ended up tying the phone calls for those who were actually having the emergency and were trying to reach up to the officials.

The feature is indeed an exceptional one to let the users make contact to officials with clicking the wake up button five times in a row. But users should understand that the feature has been rolled out for the emergency and not to test in general.

The officials have thus requested the users not to use the feature until it is truly required. Toronto Police has thus requested the users not to test the feature so that they can reach to the those who are truly in the need of the services.

Smartphone users thus need to understand that the feature is working well and they need not to test the same.
