How to turn off Crash Detection on iPhone

Apple’s new iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Pro, and Apple Watch models come with Crash Detection. When these devices detect a crash or collision, they automatically place an emergency call. However, Crash Detection is not foolproof and it may send false alerts to emergency services if you are engaged in physical activity such as snowboarding, skiing, mountain biking, and even rollercoaster rides. In such cases, it may be wise to turn off Crash Detection.

Disabling Crash Detection when you do not need it will help you avoid placing an undue burden on emergency services and resources. Here’s how to turn off Crash Detection in a few simple steps.
