It seems that the iPhone 14 series – iPhone 14 provides a very important feature for users, which is the new fault detection feature that is supposed to alert the authorities when they discover that you have had an accident, a car accident for example.


Reports from “The Wall Street Journal“The iPhone 14 series phones when they feel an accident that has unexpected side effects, they call the 911 emergency number. According to the report, law enforcement has been dispatched to theme parks on numerous occasions in the event of dangerous vehicle twists and turns or in the event of severe braking for a real emergency.

The new fault detection feature of the iPhone 14 series

Apple introduced Crash Detection with its new iPhone 14, Watch Series 8, SE and Ultra phones last month, equipping the devices with a gyroscope sensor and a high-gravity accelerometer trained on the impact of simulated car crashes.

If the sensors detect you’ve had an accident, your iPhone will display an alert and call emergency services if you don’t dismiss it within 20 seconds.


When you call law enforcement, it will play an audio message alerting authorities that you have had an accident, and also providing them with your exact geographical location. (An Apple Watch with fault detection can only notify authorities if you have an iPhone with you, or if it’s connected to a mobile network or Wi-Fi.)

Well, that’s exactly what so many users’ Apple devices have done, as WSJ reporter (Joanna Stern) shared during a tweet an example of one of the 911 calls made while attaching an iPhone 14 owner to a roller coaster at Kings Island theme park in Cincinnati. While the automated message is playing you can hear muffled screams in the background as the rollercoaster runs its course.

Just as last month, Crash Detection helped detect and alert authorities about a fatal accident in Nebraska, the technology clearly has its drawbacks as well as its upsides.

In another snapshot, Warren County (where Kings Island is located) has received six emergency calls from park rides since the iPhone 14 was released, and Stern noted that other users have experienced similar issues at theme parks across the country.

Thus, we may see that bringing phones on trips is not a really smart idea because the risk of false 911 calls may be all the more reason to leave your iPhone 14 (and other devices) before getting into that bumper car, and you can also choose to put your phone in airplane mode or disable the feature entirely. .

What do you think of the new iPhone feature? Do you see its disadvantages greater or its characteristics?
