A Glitch In iPhone 14 Triggers Automated Crash SOS Alerts

With the use of its accident detection and emergency SOS satellite functions, the Apple iPhone 14 has helped to save several lives. This time, the gadget is in the headlines due to a bug in the crash detection feature. It appears that the Apple iPhone 14’s accident detection technology is annoying emergency personnel in Colorado’s ski county with automatic crash alarms.

iPhone 14 Has SOS Glitch

According to a source, the iPhone 14’s crash detection capability has a bug that causes it to make about 20 automatic emergency calls to the Pitkin County 911 Center in Colorado. Additionally, the Grand Country indicated that the malfunction was the cause of roughly 30 calls every day.

The Cupertino-based corporation claims that the accident detection feature only functions while a user is in a vehicle, although this has not always been the case.

The Summit County Sheriff, Jaime FitzSimons, recently got in touch with the IT firm to voice his worries about the rise in automated calls to his dispatch center. Apple responded to the sheriff by saying that it had just launched an update that will cut down on automated calls. In addition, Apple informed Pitkin County that it was working on a remedy and that it should be available by the first quarter of 2019. A few months ago, Apple revealed the 2022 iPhone series.

There are four models in the series: the 14-inch iPhone, 14-inch Plus, 14-inch Pro, and 14-inch Pro Max. New features and cameras are included with the handsets. Users of the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max are reportedly noticing horizontal lines on the screen after turning on their smartphones, according to a report by 9to5Mac. Users complained about the problem on Reddit and the Apple community site. Some customers allege that the problem began after the iOS 16.2 upgrade, but others assert that older iOS 16 releases also had flashing lines on the screen.
