Today, Apple pushes to iPhone users iOS 16.1.2 official version update(Build number: 20B110). The update is said to improve the reliability of the car crash detection feature for iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro users, improve compatibility with wireless carriers, and bring important security patches.
It is reported that the car accident detection function is that iPhone 14 models can automatically call emergency services when the phone detects a car accident. After the feature rolled out, a small number of users complained that it was also being triggered by mistake when they were riding the roller coaster.
Apple later explained that the feature uses gravity sensors in conjunction with other data to detect crashes, but the company acknowledged that roller coasters could trick the system.
It’s unclear exactly how Apple is improving collision detection with iOS 16.1.2, but since the feature is based on algorithms that detect potential car crashes, Apple may be tweaking the system to make those algorithms more accurate.
It’s worth noting that this update is only for iPhones, so there is no iPadOS 16.1.2 update for iPads. For more mobile phone information, please continue to stay on the Chinese version of TechNave!
