YouTuber deliberately crashed a car to test if the iPhone 14 Pro’s ‘collision detection feature’ will automatically call emergency services.

After crashing the car, the function activated an emergency SOS countdown, showing that the collision detection function is working.

Apple said that if a severe crash is detected, the iPhone 14 Pro will automatically call emergency services.

Ukrainian-born YouTuber Taras Maksimuk deliberately crashed a car with an iPhone 14 Pro strapped to the driver’s seat headrest in abandoned cars to test the reliability of the new iPhone 14 Pro’Collision detection function‘.

After crashing the remote control car into a pile of old vehicles, the “collision detection function” of iPhone 14 Pro activated an emergency SOS countdown, showing that the collision detection function is working.

In a video shared, a 10-second emergency SOS countdown was activated, which Taras Maksimuk and his team canceled before they could call emergency services.

Following the test, Taras, whose YouTube channel, TechRax, focuses on making videos about destroying Samsung’s iPhones and Galaxy S, said:

“I can confirm that crash detection is working.”

Apple notes that once the 10-second Emergency SOS countdown reaches zero without anyone canceling it, the phone will automatically call emergency services for assistance.

“If you don’t answer, your iPhone will play an audio message for emergency services, which notifies them that you’ve been in a serious accident and gives them your latitude and longitude coordinates with an approximate search radius,” Apple said. .

Apple on its blog mentions that:

“If your iPhone 14 detects a serious car accident, it can help connect you to emergency services and notify your emergency contacts.”

“We built an advanced sensor fusion algorithm to provide accurate collision detection,” says Ron Huang, vice president of detection and connectivity.

“We started by spending years studying vehicle impacts in state-of-the-art crash test labs. We focused on four main types of severe crashes, namely frontal impact, side impact, rear impact and rollover in every crash test.

“We capture data from the new 8-Series gyroscope, accelerometer and other sensors, including the barometer, microphone and GPS.”
