Apple Could Soon Add Crash Detection on iPhones, Apple Watches


Cupertino giant Apple is reportedly working on a new feature for the iPhone and Apple Watch that will detect a car crash and will subsequently dial 911 as soon as it detects a crash.

This report comes to us via The Wall Street Journal, which mentions that Apple plans to roll out this feature in 2022, which, if true will make driving much safer for iOS users.

What Does Apple’s New Safety Feature Promise?

In case you missed it, the Personal Safety application from Google on Pixel handsets comes with a feature to call for help when a car crashes, similar to what modern vehicles from Subaru, Fiat, General Motors and more have to offer.

However, multiple cars lack this crucial feature and the presence of this feature on an iPhone or an Apple Watch, two rather common devices for the American market will make driving much safer.

Apple mentions that the increase in unsafe smartphone usage in cars, which at times has unfortunately led to certain accidents has led to the creation of Apple CarPlay and Google’s Android Auto, the first of which is now present on around 80% of cars in 2020.
