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.
Learn how to turn off Crash Detection on iPhone
- Launch Settings from the Home screen of your iPhone.
- Go to Emergency SOS.
- Turn off Call After Severe Crash.
With Crash Detection turned off, your iPhone will no longer call emergency services when you are engaged in other activities that may trigger the feature. Note that once you are done with your activity, it would be best for you to enable the feature.
We hope this guide helped you learn how to turn off Crash Detection on your iPhone. If you have any questions, let us know in the comments below.
