Checking Out the New iPhone Crash Detection Feature
Many are questioning if iPhone's new crash detention feature is too sensitive. Doug Sonders was riding his motorcycle when his iPhone flew off the handlebars. He says the phone sent his emergency contacts an automated text message and called 911. To test the new technology, The Wall Street Journal conducted what they describe as a "not-exactly-scientific" test. Journal reporter Joanna Stern says the feature worked as advertised in the moving vehicle but not in the stationary one.
