Question: ICE (In Case of Emergency)

Many bodies like Red Cross and Police request that each person include in his contacts list some ICE (In Case of Emergency) contacts to be used in cases of accidents and emergencies. On the other hand most of the people keep their iphones locked under a password, so even if the iphone was found in case of accidents, the ICE contacts cant be known.

I suggest that a new ICE icon be introduced in the operating system. This icon will be used to enter ICE contact numbers, and these numbers will show on the first screen where "slide to unlock" is shown. This allows the helpers in case of accidents to retrieve these numbers easily and contact whomever the iphone owner assigns.

Set up your Medical ID

To make your important health information accessible in case of emergencies, you can set up a Medical ID on your iPhone. To add emergency contacts and health information like your birth date, height, and blood type, tap Medical ID > Edit.

Turn on Show When Locked to make your Medical ID available from the Lock screen. In an emergency, this gives people who want to help some important information, like the emergency contacts that you've entered.

Actually, as the iPhone is the most popular phone in the world, there probably isn't a first responder around who doesn't know about it.


The "process" is bring up the login screen and tap "Emergency". I admit there may be people who don't know how to display the login screen, but they probably wouldn't know how to find ICE either.


As far as setup is concerned, it does require reading the manual, or at least the "Getting started" web page. But again, that would be required on any phone.
