iPhone and Apple Watch will learn to recognize car accidents

An insider said that Apple plans to add a new feature to the iPhone and Apple Watch that will allow devices

determine that the owner is in an accident and automatically call 911.

Crash detection feature will be launched in 2022year if the insider is right. The device software will use sensors on the iPhone and Apple Watch, including an accelerometer, to "detect car accidents as they happen." The watch will register a sharp overload.

The source writes that Apple has tested this feature.last year, collecting data anonymously shared by iPhone and Apple Watch users. Apparently, the devices have already detected more than 10 million alleged collisions with vehicles. Emergency services were called in 50 thousand cases.

It should be assumed that if such a function appears in principle on iPhones, it will not come to Russia in large quantities yet.
