The Apple iPhone May Now Include Car Crash Detection Feature and 911 Automatic Contact
The apple company already has had the fall detection feature on their devices. But it now seems that the company is taking the feature to the next level with its rumored crash detection feature. In reports cited by the wall street journal, apple may add the feature on the iPhone and the apple watch starting from next year.
The feature will enable users with iPhones and Apple watches to set up their devices to automatically dial 911. This feature however is not new to the auto industry. But adding it to the iPhone will bring in a whole new perspective for people to take advantage of the technology.
What Apple Has To Say about the Reported Feature?
The apple systems will make use of sensors in measuring sudden spikes in g forces and associate them with car crashes just as it is with GMs OnStar. When asked for a comment regarding the matter, the company did not respond. The report from the wall street journal also cited that the feature may face the axe if the company decides not to release it after all.
