Apple planning iPhone feature that dials 911 in event of car crash: report


Apple Inc. AAPL, -0.27% is planning a feature that would detect when an iPhone or Apple Watch user was in a car crash and then automatically call 911, according to a Wall Street Journal report. The feature, which could roll out next year, would make use of data from sensors like accelerometers that Apple has built into its products. Apple already offers settings that can detect falls and unsteady walking through some of its devices. The company didn’t immediately respond to MarketWatch’s request for comment about the potential new feature. The Wall Street Journal story cites document reviews and conversations with unnamed people familiar with the Apple feature. Apple shares have gained 13% so far this year as the Dow Jones Industrial Average DJIA, +0.45% has risen 17%.
