The upcoming updates to the iPhone and Apple Watch apps, iOS 13.5 and watOS 6.2.5, will strengthen the connection between your medical data in the Health app and the SOS Emergency service so your history can be sent to emergency services.
This has been reported 9to5Mac. The iOS Medical Data section allows you to enter relevant health information such as allergies or medication so that if something happens to you, strangers will know about your medical history.
They are available by pressing the sidebar of today's iPhones. In the same way, SOS emergency function is also available, allowing you to call emergency services when you need them.
Also available from Apple WatchThis function makes it easier to pay attention immediately in case of an emergency. This help would be more accurate now if the two functions would be linked in the last update for software.
This means that if you make a call through an emergency SOS service, paramedics will quickly find your medical history so they can learn about allergies and chronic illnesses.
In the case of Apple Watch, your medical data should be sent to emergency services when a fall detection operation is activated, which calls the emergency department when the Apple Watch Series 4 and 5 user falls and responds.
"Medical information is stored on iCloud in a hidden state and transmitted in this manner," they said from 9to5Mac. This privacy is also kept when health information is shared.
This feature is available in the beta versions of iOS and watoOS, so it should be their proper public versions as soon as they are released. It's a small improvement, but it should greatly help the health response.
