Apple launched the new iPhone 14 lineup back in September. While the majority of the fans and of those who are passionate about tech received the new iPhones relatively well, there were also critics.
Apple has implemented several interesting functionalities into the new iPhone 14. We can mention the Dynamic Island feature, the advanced cameras, or the crash detection system. As you might have already guessed, what the former does is that it automatically detects if the user has been through a crash. The iPhone will automatically contact the emergency service on behalf of the user, but as you might have also guessed, it doesn’t always work as it should. After all, how could an iPhone know for sure if you’ve been through a car accident or just a minor bump?
Rides at the amusement parks can also make the iPhone 14 call 911
If you like hopping on the roller coaster, we don’t blame you. But the authorities might do it if you keep your iPhone 14 in your pocket during the ride. Futurism reveals, as citing The Wall Street Journal as the source, the case of a woman who went to the King Island amusement park with her family. She started riding the Mystic Timbers roller coaster. After the ride, she saw that her iPhone 14 Pro had surprisingly dialed 911 on its own The user was fine, but the 911 operator couldn’t find that out too fast.
Melissa Bour, who is director of emergency services for Warren County, explained for WSJ:
We are very vigilant about calls,
No call doesn’t get checked. You get used to calls that are not an emergency, but it’s wear and tear on the dispatchers.
The new iPhone 14 lineup consists of four models: the standard iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Plus, iPhone 14 Pro, and iPhone 14 Pro Max.
