Video: that’s it, a youtuber tested the accident detection of the new iPhone

During its last “Keynote”, Apple unveiled a whole new generation of smartphones, but also of connected watches.

In which case, they would automatically send a distress signal to the emergency services. Internet being what it is, some immediately wanted to check this feature in real conditions…

It works !
