Last week, journalists and influencers shared their first experiences with the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro. Most of these reviews mentioned the new crash detection feature, but no one actually put the feature to the test for obvious reasons.
Now, a YouTuber has decided to do it in a file approx A real-life scenario. The test reveals what Apple describes as a “severe car accident” and how the iPhone 14 Pro handles the situation.
Youtube Crax He posted a 6:27 minute video. In a car with no one inside, try to simulate some car crash accidents. Although the small bumps are not enough to trigger this feature, it was able to show Crash Detection working twice with the iPhone 14 Pro.
It is important to disclaim that the car was not only driven by anyone, but was also in an open field and there was no one near it. Don’t try this at home, please.
Troubleshooting is an exclusive feature available with the iPhone 14 series, Apple Watch Series 8, SE 2, and Apple Watch Ultra. Here’s how Apple describes this feature:
With a new dual-core accelerometer capable of detecting G-force measurements of up to 256 GB and a new High Dynamic Range gyroscope, fault detection on the iPhone can now detect a serious car accident and automatically call emergency services when the user is unconscious or unable to reach to their iPhone. These capabilities rely on existing components, such as a barometer, which can now detect cabin pressure changes, GPS for additional input for speed changes, and a microphone, which can recognize loud noises from severe car crashes. Apple-designed advanced motion algorithms trained on over 1 million hours of real-world driving data and fault history provide better accuracy.
What’s interesting to watch in the video is that Crash Detection doesn’t require a severe crash as Apple’s promotional videos might suggest. The car doesn’t need to roll over, as the iPhone uses more sensors to trigger the function – like the sound of a car crash.
