The new iPhone iOS 11 update comes with a brilliant emergency SOS feature.

All you need to do is rapidly tap the sleep/wake button five times to quickly call the police or service of your choosing (you can put in the desired number).

Doing this immediately locks the phone as well.

You can set up the feature so it sounds a countdown alarm before it calls your chosen contact.

It’s something you’ll hopefully never have to use, but arguably one of Apple’s most important iPhone software updates ever.

The App Store has been totally revamped for this update.

It comes after the launch of the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X.

Apple CEO Tim Cook revealed them at the Steve Jobs Theater in California earlier this month.

The highly-anticipated X model comes with all the main features that were rumored including face recognition, no home button and a full-screen interface.

Entering this phone of the future means looking at it directly then swiping up.

Apple said that the chances of a random person using their face to enter your phone is about one in a million.

The iPhone X will cost you $999 and will be shipping from November 3.

Other features include augmented reality gaming.

iPhone 8’s will start at $699, and the Plus model at $799.

They will be out on September 22.
