Tech giant Apple’s iPhone 14 smartphones and Apple Watch are still sending false alarms from skiers due to the crash detection feature that is built into the iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Pro and new Apple Watch models, putting a strain on emergency resources .
Skiers’ Apple devices sent automated crash alerts to dispatchers at the Summit County 911 center in the US state, reports AppleInsider.
None of them were involved in the emergency, but they took time to handle and required ski patrollers to go to the location of the automated call if the skier did not answer the call from dispatchers.
“We are not in the practice of ignoring calls,” said Trina Dummer, interim director of the Summit County 911 Center.
“These calls involve a tremendous amount of resources, from dispatchers to deputies to ski patrollers. And I don’t think we’ve ever had a true emergency,” Dummer said.
Earlier this month, Summit County dispatchers in the US state saw an increase in accidental emergency calls from skiers due to the facility.
