Apple’s iOS 12 Update Set To Improve 911 Emergency Calls

Dow 30 component Apple (AAPL) revolutionized personal technology with the introduction of the Macintosh in 1984. Today, Apple leads the world in innovation with iPhone, iPad, Mac, Apple Watch and Apple TV. Apple’s four software platforms — iOS, macOS, watchOS and tvOS — provide seamless experiences across all Apple devices and empower people with breakthrough services including the App Store, Apple Music, Apple Pay and iCloud. Apple’s more than 100,000 employees are dedicated to making the best products on earth, and to “leaving the world better than they found it.”

iOS Help On The Way

With Apple’s new iOS 12 update, set to come out later this year, iPhone users in the U.S. who call 911 will automatically have their location data securely shared with first responders in an effort to reduce emergency response times in an effort to improve the overall outcome.

Nearly 80% of 911 come from mobile devices, and with landline-era infrastructure still in place, accurately locating a mobile caller’s location can be difficult for 911 centers. In 2015, Apple launched HELO (Hybridized Emergency Location) which uses cell towers and on-device data sources such as GPS and WiFi Access Points to estimate a mobile 911 callers location, in order to help improve the challenge. Looking to improve 911 response time, Apple will now also use emergency technology company RapidSOS’s Internet Protocol-based data pipeline along with HELO to improve the 911 centers response time.

What’s “Cookin’?”

Tim Cook, Apple’s CEO stated, “Communities rely on 911 centers in an emergency, and we believe they should have the best available technology at their disposal. When every moment counts, these tools will help first responders reach our customers when they most need assistance.”

With these improvements, Apple is keeping a focus on privacy so that user data will not be used for any non-emergency purpose. The 911 responding center will only have access to the user’s location during the duration of an emergency call.

FCC Likes?

Tom Wheeler, FCC Chairman from 2013 to 2017 stated, “This new functionality is an example of how companies and first responders can use technology to dramatically improve public safety. Lives will be saved thanks to this effort by Apple and RapidSOS.”

Tech Giant Apple Exceeds Q2 Estimates

Dow 30 component Apple (AAPL) revolutionized personal technology with the introduction of the Macintosh in 1984. Today, Apple leads the world in innovation with iPhone, iPad, Mac, Apple Watch and Apple TV. Apple’s four software platforms — iOS, macOS, watchOS and tvOS — provide seamless experiences across all Apple devices and empower people with breakthrough services including the App Store, Apple Music, Apple Pay and iCloud. Apple’s more than 100,000 employees are dedicated to making the best products on earth, and to “leaving the world better than they found it.”

Market analysts predicted Apple to sell 52.3M iPhones, in the company’s Q2. The company kept in line with the estimate, selling 52.2M iPhones. Estimates also called for $2.64 earnings/share, and the technology company exceeded expectations with reported earnings of $2.73/share. Revenue was reported at $61.1B, beating analyst estimates of $60.9B.

Many investors who were concerned about the soft sales of iPhone X because of its high price can find relief in Apple’s quarter 2 earnings. While iPad sales were down this quarter, the YOY sales of the product were up. However, the Mac division of Apple saw sales decrease not only this quarter but in YOY comparison with only 4M sold in quarter two, less than the 5.1M from  Q1 and the 4.2M from Q2 2017.

Apple’s Board of Directors also approved a $100B share buyback as well as a 16% increase in its quarterly dividend.

How Would $1 Million Work for You This Year?

Bloomberg reported that a Japanese firm called Today Co., which operates a popular online fashion shopping site Zozotown, posted new job offerings recently seeking up to seven “genius” tech experts. What is amazing is that they are willing to pay nearly $1 million or 100 million yen for each tech expert per year in the fields of artificial intelligence, cryptography and robotics, according to a blog post.

This story hits close to home as I live in the San Francisco  Bay Area where tech workers are also in extremely high demand with the likes of Alphabet, Google, Apple, Facebook, etc. and countless startups continuously fighting for tech talent causing a similar escalation of income as well as real estate prices. Real estate prices in the bay area have gained value YOY for a record 70 straight months, according to real estate data firm CoreLogic.

It will be amazing to see how this race to acquire tech workers will play out over the next few years and what will be produced as well. What is clear is that all should be acquiring these skills and understanding in the tech field in these rapidly changing times and that you will be paid well. If you are not headed in this field of work, then it would seem smart to try and find good investments to capitalize on these trends from real estate to tech and back.
