Apple is urged to include Advanced Mobile Location (AML) for emergencies


Apple is being urged by EENA, the European Association of Emergency Numbers (something like the European 112), to include in its devices the Advanced Mobile Emergency Location (AML). The purpose of this service, which has been implementing for some time in Android, is to ensure the safety of its users by providing data on the location of the service to emergency services if necessary.
In this article , we'll see exactly what the AML is and why each day is more necessary than is implemented in our iPhone.

What is AML?

The Advanced Mobile Location (AML) has since its implementation on Android devices an important help for its creators, emergency services. This system provides detailed information about the location in case of being in danger, thus facilitating the search works.
The AML is activated when an emergency call is made, although it is not yet available on the iPhone.

The way this service operates is as follows: when you make a call to 112 or any other emergency number, the AML system automatically activates the GPS of your device and sends an SMS to emergencies with your location. Imagine that you are in the mountains, you suffer a fall, and besides you have no way of explaining to the 112 in which exact area you are. Well the AML will do it for you, yes, as long as you do not have an iPhone.
With the AML service, the margin of error is much lower than without it, as can be seen in the following image:

Apple, you need to include this service

The Advanced Mobile Location is not yet incorporated in the iPhone, although in the last few hours we have known that EENA, as we said at the beginning of the article, would be having conversations in the last dates with those of Cupertino so that this location system comes included in Their terminals. In fact, they have published a statement about it that you can read here.
Although EENA recognizes Apple's efforts to improve the security of its customers through, for example, the SOS functionality of Apple Watch, which automatically sends the location to a particular contact in case of emergency; Urge the company to use this service of Advanced Mobile Location, considering it more reliable and effective.
Although there are some applications like AlertCops to communicate with emergency services, the AML service is the most reliable to send us our exact location.

Apple seems to always worry about the safety of all its users, so it is not entirely reasonable that they have not yet included this service. Do you think they could be waiting for the iPhone 8 to incorporate this Advanced Mobile Location system?
