  • The iPhone 14’s accident detection can also be triggered by harmless events.
  • This includes a roller coaster ride.
  • According to US media, the feature has already caused several false alarms in the States.

An innovation of iPhone 14 is the accident detection. The smartphone uses several sensors to recognize when you are involved in an accident and automatically alert the emergency services if you do not react within a certain period of time. But apparently a ride on the roller coaster is enough to trigger the feature.

Like the US tech blog The Verge citing the Wall Street Journal, there have already been several operations in amusement parks in the USA. In Cincinnati, Ohio alone, the emergency call center near Kings Island amusement park has received at least six calls since the iPhone 14 launched, Wall Street Journal editor Joanna Stern wrote on Twitter. She attached a recording of one such call to the tweet.

The iPhone 14 is not the only cell phone with such an accident detection. Since the Pixel 3, Google’s Pixel phones have also offered a corresponding feature in some countries. Apparently, a roller coaster ride is enough to trigger this, you can read on the internet.

However, Google points in one FAQ caution that activities involving an impact may inadvertently trigger an emergency call. Apple has so far lacked such a note in the FAQ. If you want to be sure that no false alarm is triggered, you should put your iPhone 14 in flight mode before any activities.
