A new crash detection feature in Apple devices designed to call emergency services in case of danger could mistaken a rollercoaster ride for an accident, The Wall Street Journal and Coaster101 report.

The devices released this year - iPhone 14 as well as the new Apple Watch models - have this new Crash Detection feature. When an accident is detected, a warning is displayed on the screen for 10 seconds, then a 10-second countdown begins, accompanied by an audible beep. A call is then made to 911, relaying a message and providing location data.

However, the new feature takes a rollercoaster ride for accidents. The Warren County Communications Centre, where the amusement park is located, reported six iPhone accident detection calls from people on Kings Island rides. All of them, however, were received after the new iPhone 14 models went on sale in September. Similar alerts have been triggered on rollercoasters and other parks.

In response to the problem, some amusement parks have posted warning signs near the fastest rides.
