The entire iPhone 14 lineup introduces breakthrough security capabilities that can provide emergency support when it matters most.

With a new dual-core accelerometer capable of detecting g-force measurements of up to 256Gs and a new high dynamic range gyroscope, Crash Detection on iPhone can now detect a serious car accident and automatically dial emergency services when a user is unconscious or incapacitated. . Reach out to their iPhone.

These capabilities build on existing components, such as the barometer, which can now detect changes in cabin pressure, GPS for additional input on speed changes, and microphones, 5 which can recognize loud noises indicative of serious car crashes.

Advanced Apple-designed motion algorithms trained with over a million hours of real-world driving and crash record data provide better accuracy.

When integrated with the Apple Watch, Crash Detection seamlessly leverages the unique strengths of both devices to help users efficiently.

When a serious crash is detected, the emergency service call interface will appear on the Apple Watch, as it is most likely to be closer to the user, when the call is made via iPhone if it is in range for optimal connectivity.

The iPhone 14 lineup also introduces Emergency SOS via Satellite, which combines custom components deeply integrated with software to allow antennas to connect directly to satellites, enabling messaging with emergency services when out of cellular or Wi-Fi coverage.

Satellites are transmitting targets with low bandwidth and messages can take several minutes to receive because every second counts, including Emergency SOS via satellite, the iPhone front-loads a few key questions to assess the user's situation, and shows where to point their phone to connect to a satellite.

Initial queries and follow-up messages are then relayed to centers staffed by Apple-trained experts who can call for help on behalf of the user.

This breakthrough technology allows users to manually share their location via satellite when there is no cellular or Wi-Fi connection, providing a sense of security when hiking or camping off the grid.

Emergency SOS via Satellite will be available to users in the US and Canada in November, and the service will be free for two years.
