Press your iPhone’s power button five times and you’ll call emergency services, starting with iOS 10.2 Beta 2.

“According to Apple’s release notes, SOS works in Australia, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, China, France, Hong Kong, India, Italy, Japan, Russia, Spain, UK, and US.”

There’s already a setting called Emergency SOS under Location Services (see screenshot below); I have no idea how this relates to the upcoming feature. There’s a thread on Reddit about this, but those folks don’t really seem to be too sure what it is.
