Warning for all iPhone users to activate LIFESAVING setting now or it could cost you | The Sun

APPLE has an emergency protocol program that all users should view and activate on their devices.

The iPhone has transformed communication, gaming, photography, and more – with this feature, it's bettering the health sector.

Apple has created a feature called Medical ID that quickly displays your key health info.

"Medical ID helps emergency responders access your critical medical information from the Lock Screen, without needing your passcode," Apple explained.

"They can see information such as allergies and medical conditions, as well as who to contact in case of an emergency."

Set up Medical ID in a few easy steps.

A former emergency services worker posted to TikTok to praise Apple's potentially life-saving technology.

"When I was an EMS and we didn't know who someone was, we could talk to their phone," @rachkent said in the video.

"It's really helpful for identifying someone who we didn't know who they were – if someone's unconscious or didn't have an ID etc."
