iPhone Crash Detection will alert an ambulance if you go to an amusement park

iPhone 14's new Crash Detection feature assumes you've crashed and calls an ambulance if you go to an amusement park.

According to the Wall Street Journal, the first incident took place in Cincinnati, United States. A 39-year-old dentist got on a roller coaster at a nearby amusement park and after the intense roller coaster ride was over, she saw that her cell phone was full of missed calls and voicemails from a 911 man asking if she was okay!

The reason; Because at the Warren County Communications Center, seven automated voicemails came from her iPhone stating:
"The owner of this iPhone was in a serious car accident and his phone is not responding".

Apple's iPhone 14, Watch Series 8, SE and Ultra crash detection uses a combination of data from its sensors to assess a potential crash. If it detects such an event, it displays a warning on the screen for 10 seconds and then starts a countdown of another 10 seconds, accompanied by an alarm sound.

After the countdown, the phone calls 911, relaying a message and providing location details. If you've also passed an emergency contact, it will send them a message as well.

Apple's thinking was not bad, as in another similar case it helped. In car accident in nebraska an iPhone 14 alerted authorities to a fatal accident where a car hit a tree and there were no witnesses to immediately call for help.

False alarms may not be in the news, but they do happen and will potentially become more common as more people buy Apple's new phones and watches. We're guessing that if these incidents become more common, the results will range from annoying to downright terrifying.
