With the arrival of the iPhone 14, Apple has introduced all kinds of gadgets that can come in handy in an emergency, such as an algorithm that should detect car accidents and automatically contact emergency services. The YouTuber TechRax was curious how this works in practice and has already carried out some tests.

For example, the team has attached an iPhone 14 Pro to a remote-controlled car to safely simulate a crash. After a few attempts, it is possible to cause a collision, whereby the accident detection actually switches on after ten seconds. The detection also does its job on a second attempt at a higher speed. To avoid an unnecessary emergency call, the SOS countdown is manually disabled by the crew in both cases.

Apple’s accident detection is enabled by default on all iPhone 14 smartphones, as well as the second-generation Apple Watch SE, Apple Watch Series 8, and Apple Watch Ultra. The algorithm uses the built-in gyroscope, accelerometer, GPS, barometer and microphone to determine collisions. In addition to informing the emergency services, contact persons can also be informed, if they have been assigned.
