iOS 16 Crash Detection accidentally triggered by roller coasters — here’s what we know

iOS 16‘s Crash Detection feature might promise to be a life-saver, but it appears to be getting confused by roller coasters. 

Available on the iPhone 14 range, Apple Watch Series 8, Apple Watch SE (2022) and Apple Watch Ultra, Crash Detection uses a variety of sensors to automatically call emergency services if it detects you’re in a car crash. While this is a smart feature that could save your life, some users have found it doesn’t always work, while others found Crash Detection gets accidentally triggered on roller coasters; hardly an emergency situation.
