The system displays a notification that opens the Feedback Assistant to send Apple data about what happened at that moment. Did you intentionally turn on Emergency SOS on your iPhone?

For those unfamiliar, Emergency SOS It is a feature introduced years ago in iOS that allows users to quickly call emergency services simply by holding down the iPhone buttons for a few seconds. With iPhone 14, Emergency SOS is integrated with Fault detectionwhich uses iPhone sensors to identify car accidents and automatically call emergency services.
Coincidentally, the new feature to send feedback comes after canceling Emergency SOS after The Wall Street Journal I mentioned last month that Crash Detection was mistakenly called to emergency services When iPhone and Apple Watch users were riding a roller coaster. However, the report was later updated to show that users were in fact accidentally pressing device buttons to trigger the Emergency SOS.
