iPhone 14’s Crash Detection is making 911 calls over rollercoaster rides

Apple introduced a new feature with the iPhone 14 series of phones recently, called Crash Detection. It uses a combination of a bunch of sensor data from your iPhone to detect if you have been in a car crash, and then notify emergency services to fetch help. However, it seems like the feature is accidentally triggering a bunch of calls to 911 from rollercoaster rides.

In a new report from the Wall Street Journal, Joanna Stern says the latest iPhone 14 and Apple Watches with Crash Detection are making 911 calls, with several calls being recorded since the phones started arriving to customers last month. Stern had recently tested Crash Detection herself.
