Description
Apple's new Watch Series 8 and iPhone 14 have a feature that will automatically call emergency services if a user is in a serious car crash (similar to Google Pixel). Reporters from the Wall Street Journal asked a professional demolition derby driver to test out this feature by smashing up some cars in a junkyard. It turns out that the watch detected the accidents, but the phones did not.
