If You Bought The New iPhone, You Might Get An Unexpected Visit From The Cops….
When we prepare for a vacation, we all look forward to having fun. Perhaps because of this, amusement parks are constantly at the top of every traveler's list of things to do. An amusement park is where one may relive their childhood experiences and have fun all over again, whether they are adults, children, or teenagers.
At a theme park, you can leave your daily life behind and be whisked away to a place of imagination and fun! and more ways to enjoy? Of course, the rides! There are various rides in an amusement Park.
But if you’re brave enough, you can try Roller Coaster! People tend to enjoy roller coasters thanks to a combination of speed, conquering fear, and the positive effects associated with a massive rise in physiological arousal.
Enjoying roller coasters is linked to sensation seeking – the tendency to enjoy the varied novel and intense physical experiences such as rock climbing and parachute jumping. Perhaps the draw of roller coasters is the enjoyment of the visceral sensation of fear itself, much like watching a horror movie.
However, according to The Wall Street Journal, roller coasters could be problematic for people who purchase the new iPhone 14.
One of the highlights of the new iPhone 14 series is the Crash Detection feature, which automatically identifies and calls emergency response agencies if the user is engaged in an automobile accident. The Apple iPhone 14 series was introduced during the 'Far Out' event on September 2022. In a recent development, the feature was activated while an owner of an iPhone 14 Pro was riding a rollercoaster. The feature has been in the headlines for a variety of reasons.
As The Wall Street Journal reports, there have been multiple incidents where an iPhone 14 has contacted emergency services during a roller coaster ride and conveyed the message "The owner of this iPhone was in a severe car crash and is not responding to their phone."
The report added that at least six incidents of emergency services being called for false alarms. In response to the false alarms, an Apple spokesperson said Apple tested the feature with over a million hours of car crash data and real-world driving analysis. Several tests have already been done to test the accuracy of the iPhone 14's Crash Detection, with varying results.
In fact, a dentist packed her two-day-old iPhone 14 Pro and went to take a ride on the on the Mystic Timbers coaster in Kings Island amusement park in the US. After the ride ended, she checked her phone and found various missed calls and voicemails from emergency responders asking if she was OK.
The use of crash detection has the potential to save many lives, but it may also cost emergency personnel their time. Taking into account how recent the iPhone 14 is, this issue is only going to worsen as millions more smartphones are bought over the ensuing months.
In the meantime, iPhone owners can avoid the detection from being activated by either putting their iPhone 14 in Airplane Mode or disabling Crash Detection before boarding the roller coaster. Apple may be able to upgrade the detection to distinguish a roller coaster from a car crash.
