Apple May Be Making Moves to Make Phones Harder for Police to Get Into

Apple bolsters privacy in iOS 11 with Touch ID kill switch

During any such emergency, it will also provide the option of disabling the Touch ID feature to make things easier for the individual. It adds a new setting called "Emergency SOS", in which clicking the sleep/wake button on the side of the iPhone five times will cause the phone to automatically contact emergency services. Selecting the SOS option opens a second page with an Emergency button, and a field to enter the passcode to enable Touch ID.

In case you're wondering how this benefits the user, this feature will help users lock a phone with a passcode in a situation where someone might forcefully unlock the phone using your fingerprint scan.

And the latest news about the iOS 11 has surely sparked excitement among its fans.

Naturally, the new software will have some new features to offer.

United Nations demands civilian access to Yemen airports, ports
United Nations deputy spokesman Farhan Haq told reporters Thursday that Guterres hasn't seen the draft report that was leaked. Haq said Guterres is scheduled to meet Gamba on Friday but the report isn't expected to be completed for another month.

More specifically, it would be useful for users who don't want to give police access to their iPhones. Apple had clarified that in order to meet government's request to unlock the device a new version of iOS had to be brought to life. The tech giant usually does this when the next iteration of the operating system, iOS 11, is around one month away from being released.

But the concept also hints at how Apple could improve its smartphone range with the iPhone 9. There's also a beta version of the iOS 11 that's available to the public, but users are warned that it may still be full of bugs and glitches.
