Government alert setting hidden in new iPhone update!!! Now they are in your phone!!!
If you look in the notifications section of your iPhone settings there is a new government alert option

Apple didn't tell you about it when they released the update

It can be turned off but then they might put you on some list

There was a nuclear war. A few years from now, all this, this whole place, everything, it's gone. Just gone. There were survivors. Here, there. Nobody even knew who started it. It was the machines, Sarah.

I remember a little while ago another GLPer saying that they had been woken up at 3 am by a "government alert' or something going off on her phone. Said there was also an option for 'presidential alerts'. WTF?

Been around since late 2012 but rolling out by region and phone company. verizon has it. Under Notifications down at the bottom: Government Alerts with sub categories of Amber Alerts and NWS Alerts. They can send weather alerts to everyone off the towers that are affected.

The "National emergency" alerts are the ones you can't turn off.

upload it to your computer and then use tinypic.com. I don't have anything at the bottom of my notifications page that says anything about government alerts...Do you people all have the latest iphone? mine is like a 4 something, maybe that's the issue here.

It's all the way at the bottom of the notifications list. Mine says amber alerts and emergency alerts.

Not every iPhone requires the update at the same time. Every one in my house has iPhones some don't require the update until 3-4 weeks after mine. Some of our IPhones are older than others.

I think what he's saying is hidden is that they put the alerts in without mentioning it in the update.

I belief he is referring to te terms and conditions they release upon each update. There was nothing about these features being added. Once you update you can't un-update so to speak. Therefore it was hidden and forced upon customers

me too, another poster said they have family members with older phones that get the updates later than they do, I think maybe that's the issue here because I also don't have the government alert settings on mine, and my phone says I have the most recent update.

It depends on your phone carrier whether or not you have a government alerts section. Not all carriers have it yet.
