IOS 11 'Cop Button' Will Temporarily Disable Touch ID

Iphone 8 red

A new setting, created to automate emergency services calls, lets iPhone users tap the power button quickly five times to call 911. Here, iOS users can switch on Auto Call, which automatically calls the local emergency services number after the fifth press of the lock button. Probably one of the most interesting new features brought by the iOS 11 will be the SOS. The touch id remains disabled until the user enters the correct passcode.

The capability of the Emergency SOS feature to disable Touch ID will come into play in situations when the user does not want to be forced to unlock his or her iPhone through their fingerprint.

Moving towards the official release of iOS 11, Apple released the fourth beta build for developers for its upcoming operating system for iPhone and iPads last month and now they're adding a new feature which gives users the ability to quickly call emergency services and disable the touch ID too.

Legally speaking, police in the United States can make individuals unlock their iPhone via Touch ID, but can't compel them to use their password. With the latest iOS build, Apple's tablets can save you plenty of time. The emergency call won't be placed until the user enters the correct passcode.

iOS 11 brings better multi-tasking as well as a dock to the iPad Pro, and even better markup with the Apple Pencil across different apps. The police, in many cases, have legal means at their disposal to access locked devices. As per the annual tradition, new iOS version, iOS 11, will be available to iOS device owners around the world this year, but here's a quick peek at what's coming.

Apple's iOS 11 is now available as beta, and will likely be released sometime in September.

The new iPhone 8 looks fascinating, and it also fits the hand perfectly.

Will you be downloading iOS 11 when it lands or waiting until it's clear of potential launch bugs.
