The previous update did not fix all the problems
Dwight Yohim, senior manager of the Search and Rescue Volunteer Association of Canada, said that the crash detection feature on the new iPhone 14 often does not work correctly.
According to him, recently they received three false automatic calls from iPhone 14 users. After the rescuers arrived at the scene (by helicopter), they found that everything was in order with the smartphone owners. Therefore, the Search and Rescue Volunteer Association of Canada contacted Apple, providing them with the relevant data.
Dwight Yohim explains that when rescuers receive an emergency message, they immediately move to the scene. In the case of false calls, this takes a lot of rescue resources. Dwight Yohim hopes that Apple will release an update to prevent such situations from happening.
It is worth adding that the car accident detection function has already been criticized by the visitors of the rides, where it also did not work correctly . In this regard, Apple released a software update, which, as it turned out, did not fix all the problems.
