The iPhone 14's new Crash Detection feature, which is intended to automatically alert emergency personnel when it calculates that it's been in a car accident, is having issues on roller coasters.
- The phone can reportedly unintentionally dial 911 due to the speed.
- Emergency personnel near Cincinnati's Kings Island amusement park have received six iPhone crash-detection calls since the iPhone 14 went on sale in mid-September.
- Similar alerts have been received from passengers on a roller coaster at Six Flags Great America near Chicago.
- The accidental calls can be avoided by temporarily putting the device on airplane mode or disabling the feature in settings.
