Apple's new iPhone could save your life in a serious car accident

Apple's new iPhone has an incredible new feature that could very well save your life in the event of a serious car accident.

The company revealed its newest device would be a game-changer when it came to those terrible moments in life.

"iPhone 14 Pro comes with Crash Detection, a vital new safety feature that can detect a severe car crash and automatically call for help, even when you can't," Apple said.

"Add this to the new 48MP Pro camera and a totally reimagined display, and iPhone 14 Pro redefines what a smartphone can do. Again."

The iPhone 14 has an updated dual-core accelerometer, barometer, and other sensors that will dial the local emergency services if you don't respond to your phone within 10 seconds.

We're also talking about serious accidents, not the ones where there's a small fender bender.


These sensors are able to work out if the car you're travelling in has experienced rapid deceleration along with a large noise.

The phone can detect movement up to 256 Gs, aka 256 times the force of gravity.

If you've seen Top Gun: Maverick and remember Tom Cruise's plane ripping apart when it went a little over 10 Gs.

Well, the iPhone 14 can detect force way higher than that cinematic moment.


If you're seriously injured in the crash and are unable to speak once the phone connects you to authorities, the phone will play a pre-recorded messaging indicating you've been in an accident and your GPS coordinates will be sent to them.

It's an incredible advancement when it comes to technology and safety and has already proven to be helpful in the real-world.

Six people were tragically killed recently in Nebraska when their car slammed into a tree, according to News Corp.


One of the occupants of the car had the new iPhone 14 and the phone called 911 to alert authorities.

Apple's new phone comes with a bunch of other features that make it another amazing device.

The aforementioned 48 megapixel camera has to be seen to be believed as it will make your moments look unbelievable.

The video camera also comes with an action mode that will get rid of all that jumpy movement and transform it into a stunning, steady clip.


No more gimbals or stabilisers will be needed for everyday videos as you'll be able to take cinematic-quality clips with your phone.

The A15 bionic chip means the phone is able to have the best battery life to date and the screen is unbelievably strong.

The iPhone 14 Plus has just dropped in Australia and it comes in an array of colours and storage sizes.

You can pick from 128GB, 256GB and 512GB models, as well as colours Midnight, Blue, Starlight, Purple and (PRODUCT)RED.

The phone starts from A$1579 and goes up from there.

You can also pick up the iPhone 14 Pro, iPhone 14 Pro Max, and regular iPhone.
