Apple recently introduced its new line of cell phones and one of the novelties is a function that detects accidents at the wheel. Is it really useful? That is precisely the question that the person in charge of the TechRax channel set out to answer.
Apple iPhone 14: a multiple shock to check a phone function
As we count in TN Tecno When the Cupertino, California company announced the iPhone 14 series, these cell phones included a shock detection function. The manufacturer’s new watches also added this feature.
As we explained, thanks to the accelerometers, the GPS and the microphone, los iPhone 14 are capable of detecting if the user is involved in a serious traffic accident. An algorithm combines all the information to determine if the user crashed. In that case, call 911 or a specific person (this must be previously configured).
“It’s time to try the new iPhone 14 Pro accident detection feature. Does it really work?” reads the description of the video. For those who are already screaming to heaven, it is necessary to clarify two aspects:
- The test was carried out in an open field, in a “controlled and safe environment”.
- The youtuber did not get into the car, but instead drove it with a remote control.
Accident detection on the iPhone 14: does it really work?
In the more than 6 minutes in which the video extends we see repeated crashes. To check if the system promoted by Apple is efficient, the youtuber placed the iPhone on the headrest of the driver’s seat. As we pointed out, the car moved forward thanks to the use of a distance driving method. In Creole, he used a remote control.
As the site noted Apple Insider, the system does work despite a curious delay in the first shock. As stated in the manufacturer’s instructions, when a crash is detected, the phone calls the emergency services on its own.
