After an accident occurred in Tasmania in the early hours of the morning, the Crash Detection feature in the iPhone 14 was able to contact police right away and summon assistance for the victims in a matter of minutes. According to Tasmania Police Inspector Ruth Orr, “In a case where people had lost consciousness in a crash like this, it is certainly something that alerts police quickly.”

Additionally, officers were already in the area, which sped up response times. Even though the iPhone 14 models have only been available for four months, the Crash Detection feature and the Emergency SOS via Satellite feature, which can contact police in an emergency when WiFi and cellular service are unavailable, have already been of assistance to numerous accident victims.

Summit County dispatchers in Utah reported a significant increase in unintentional 911 calls in November, and just this week, a report from The Japan News claimed that the Kita-Alps Nagano Fire Department had received 134 false calls in total, the majority of which were caused by Crash Detection and took place between December 16 and January 23.

With the iOS 16.1.2 update, Apple already improved crash detection to reduce false positives, but reports in December suggested that 911 dispatchers were still receiving a significant number of unintentional calls.
