Who Knew? How To Find Emergency Contact Info on an iPhone

Ever tossed and turned at night wondering how a paramedic could hack into your iPhone if, god forbid, something were to happen to you? Well, they don’t actually need it. Maybe it’s only new to us, but this is a genius trick we learned last week: When your phone is locked, swipe to the left to get your passcode screen. Click on “Emergency” and you’ll see a screen with a phone pad and “* Medical ID” in the lower-left hand corner. You can fill out all the pertinent information in your Health app, which comes pre-loaded with every iPhone. It takes all of five minutes.
