This year ' s iPhone 14 introduced a crash detection function that allows automatic emergency services to be called in the event of an accident, and it turns out that this innovation is not working perfectly, and, according to network sources, iPhone 14 can cause law enforcement and medical personnel to enter the amusement park by taking a ride on roller coasters for accidents.
Apple has integrated the Crash Design function into the new iPhone 14, as well as into the smart hours of Watch Series 8, Watch SE and Watch Ultra. It operates on the basis of a gyroscope and accelerometer, as well as an algorithm that has been trained in multiple car crash simulations to detect such accidents. When the device defines an accident, the appropriate warning is automatically displayed on the screen of the device and emergency services will be called if the user does not respond to it within 20 seconds.
This is exactly what the iPhone did to several users from the United States, but at the wrong time, because the smartphone identified a trip on roller coasters as an accident and automatically sent an accident report to 911. It is clear that the sensors misconstrued the sharp turns, the cool swings, and the rapid braking, which are an integral part of the ride. According to the source, emergency services were sent to the entertainment park on several occasions because the user smartphones reported the accident.
Curiously, some entertainment parks even have special signs recommending not to use a device that can automatically trigger emergency services. It is likely that Apple will release a software update that will solve this problem in the future.
