Feature on iPhone 14 causes hundreds of false alarms

Statistically speaking, the iPhone 14 problem detection function has caused a lot of fake warnings, creating a large liability for local units.

One of the advertised features of the iPhone 14 “family” is the addition of Crash Detection. This feature can trigger emergency services if the phone detects that the user has been in a serious car accident. However, since the phone went on sale, this feature has caused trouble for rescue units.

Recently, the fire department of Kita-Alps, Nagano, Japan said it received 134 mistaken calls from December 16, 2022, to January 23, 2022 “mainly” due to the iPhone’s Problem Detection feature. 14 activate incorrectly when their owner goes skiing.

Japan’s emergency rescue unit received a total of 919 calls in just 1 month, approximately 100 false calls caused by iPhone Crash Detection.

Reports of false alarms during winter sports also occur across the US, especially when iPhone 14 users ride roller coasters. This recreational activity moves at high speed and generates strong impacts, which the iPhone algorithms mistake for car collisions.

When iPhones think there’s been a problem, they start a countdown (with a loud siren) and automatically trigger a call to emergency services, unless the user cancels the process. However, during activities such as roller coasters or skiing, users may not hear the sirens and not cancel the emergency calls on the iPhone.

Crash Detection on iPhone 14 Series and Apple Watch has caused many false alarms.

Currently, Apple is working with local emergency services to reduce false alarms.

Previously, at the end of December, “Apple defect” released iOS version 16.1.2, which added the feature “Optimized Problem Detection on iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro models”.

Besides false alarms, Incident Detection has also identified many accurate situations, saving lives.

Currently, Crash Detection is only available on iPhone 14 Series, Apple Watch Series 8, Apple Watch SE 2, and Apple Watch Ultra. If you want to turn off this feature, users need to go to the Settings application (Settings) => Emergency SOS Alerts (Emergency SOS) => turn off Call After Serious Crash (Call After Serious Crash)
