Keep Your Battery Juiced Up
This next one may sound like a blinding flash of the obvious, but it’s actually not something many people think of. Even without Emergency SOS, your iPhone and Apple Watch may be your only lifelines in an emergency situation, so ensuring that you have enough battery when you’re away from home can be really important. Taking that last selfie when your battery has less than 5% remaining may not be worth compromising your safety.
However, we’d also recommend always having a spare battery pack around, especially on longer excursions, even around town. There are numerous really small batteries that can fit into a purse or pocket, and in fact they’ve become so popular that we’ve seen companies giving them away as marketing materials in the same way that they used to give out pens. These won’t really power up your iPhone for normal use, but they make great backup power if you need to get juiced up again in an emergency.
