Snippet: Apple’s Crash Detection Saves Another Life: Mine ☇

Shared on November 7, 2023

Daniel Eran Dilger for AppleInsider:

But I literally have some skin in the game with this new feature because Crash Detection called in an emergency response for me as I was unconscious and bleeding on the sidewalk, alone and late at night. According to calls it made, I was picked up and on my way to an emergency room within half an hour.

Because my accident occurred in a potentially dangerous and somewhat secluded area, I would likely have bled to death if the call hadn’t been automatically placed.

Not exactly the product review one plans for, but hopefully a reminder to enable Crash Detection on a supported device and set up your emergency contacts.
