The passenger also noted that the feature worked great even for emergency contacts who use an Android handset like both of her parents do. They both were informed of the accident. Crash Detection will use SMS if necessary to alert emergency contacts about an incident and let them know the location where it occurred while also notifying emergency services of the accident.
The iPhone Crash Detection feature can be a lifesaver
When an impact has been detected, your iPhone or Apple Watch will sound an alert and display an alert that it will read. If you have only an iPhone with you, an emergency call slider appears on the display and the call to emergency services can be made through the phone. If you only have the Apple Watch with you, the device will tap your wrist, sound an alarm, and display the emergency slider. If you have both your iPhone and a cellular-enabled Apple Watch, the slider appears on the watch only and when the call to emergency services is connected, it will play through the watch.
It’s good to have such a feature, as Pixel users have known since the Pixel 3. Even better is to know that the feature is there but you’ve never had to use it.
