The new crash detection feature in the iPhone 14 is causing problems when people ride roller coasters.
Thinking the user is experiencing a car crash due to the quick deceleration, the iPhone is calling to alert 911 of a crash.
Cincinnati’s Kings Island amusement park has sent six iPhone emergency calls since the new smartphone went on sale in September.
There have been several 911 calls from passengers on roller coasters all over the world.
The same technology that detects crashes is also on the Apple Watch 8.
Fortunately, there is an easy fix. Put your iPhone and the Apple Watch on airplane mode before you get on a roller coaster.
Now, all we need to do is spread the word to stop these false alarms.
