iPhone SOS1 CareRinger2
By turning on Auto Call, your iPhone automatically calls emergency services (911) after the countdown ends. You call a “CareRinger service number” to initiate the countdown of your choice. At the end of the count down, it will call you to check in.
After the call ends, your iPhone sends your Emergency contacts a text message with your current location, unless you choose to cancel. If you do not check in, CareRinger will notify one or more of your trusted contact by phone, email or text.
If you start the countdown by accident, you can cancel.
Tap red phone button, then confirm that you want to stop calling.
Careringer will cancel the notification if you check in or by answering the next check-in call from CareRinger.
Add/Remove emergency contacts using your iPhone. CareRinger requires consents from your contacts in order to include them as your emergency contacts.
