  • There were reportedly five times the number of false 911 calls than average in Coffee County, Tennessee during Bonaroo.
  • The iPhone’s Crash Detection feature is blamed for the sudden increase in false alarms.
  • It appears Bonaroo attendees were dancing hard enough to set off the feature.

When Apple revealed the iPhone 14, it also introduced a new emergency feature for Apple devices called Crash Detection. Since then, there have been a number of incidents involving false alarms due to the feature. The most recent incident appears to have caused some chaos for a county in Tennessee.

This weekend more than 80,000 people attended the annual music festival known as Bonaroo. As this event went on, local emergency responders were spammed by false 911 calls, as reported by WKRN.
