Apple claims in a support document posted on the official website that this safety feature is intended to identify serious vehicle accidents, such as rollovers, front impacts and side impacts. Minivans, sedans, pickups, SUVs and other passenger vehicles are included. However, it is crucial to understand that not all crashes can be detected by the feature. If a serious car crash is detected, Apple says users will be able to access the feature through their Apple Watch or iPhone.

According to Apple, when a serious car accident is detected, a supported iPhone or Apple Watch will display a warning and trigger an alert. Users can then contact Emergency by swiping the Emergency Call slider on their iPhone or Apple Watch, or they can mute the alert. Also, if they forget the alarm again after that, the device will continue another 10-second countdown. The device dials the emergency number if it stops responding.

Set up emergency service on your iPhone:

Car crash detection is enabled by default on supported iPhone and Apple Watch models. Set up your medical ID and emergency contacts in the Health app to notify and share with emergency personnel. Enable Location Services for Emergency SOS to communicate your location to your emergency contacts.

Although the feature is enabled by default, users can also do the same manually.

Steps to disable Car Crash Detection feature on iPhone 14 series:

You can disable the feature by doing the following if you are concerned that it may inadvertently report a crash and call for help:

Visit the “Settings” option on your iPhone.
Scroll down to find the “Emergency SOS” option.
Under the section, turn off the toggle for “Call after a serious accident.”

In order to identify serious automobile accidents, data from sensors such as an accelerometer and gyroscope from your devices is used. Unless you agree to share your data to improve accident detection, all sensor data needed to detect serious vehicle accidents is processed on the device and deleted when an accident is identified.
