To make iPhone more secure Apple has introduced a new feature with iOS 11. This new feature in iOS 11 will let users disable their iPhone in the event of an emergency. Further, once the emergency mode activated the Emergency SOS mode automatically calls the user's next of kin and temporarily stops Touch ID from working.

The system requires the iPhone owner to enter their passcode in order to revert back to normal, which could prevent thieves from taking advantage of an injured or unconscious person.

So, if you'd like Emergency SOS activated on your iPhone, you don't actually have to do anything because it's already enabled. However, it won't automatically call emergency services after pressing the sleep/wake (aka power) button five times in a row. If you want to change that, head to your Settings, then tap "Emergency SOS."
To be very frank, this feature is not that new, if you are using Apple watch with watchOS 3 you must have co-related that this the similar feature which allows you to activate the emergency mode on your device.

To all who are not using Apple watch with watchOS3, Apple introduced this emergency feature in watchOS 3 for Apple Watch in 2016. To access emergency services, an Apple Watch user would use their side button to trigger the call — but there was a catch. The user's iPhone had to be nearby, or the Watch had to be connected to a trusted Wi-Fi network with Wi-Fi Calling enabled. Plus, you know, not everyone has an Apple Watch.

Although if you see, enabling Emergency system on iPhone make sense. Apple actually teased this emergency feature in some of the iOS 10 betas. However, Apple eventually dropped support for it except for in India, which has been testing the service ever since. With iOS 11, Emergency SOS is back, and available to everyone in the US.
