Headed to a theme park? Maybe think twice before bringing your iPhone 14 on some attractions.

The iPhone 14's new crash detection feature is causing problems for users who ride roller coasters.

Apple's latest phone is reportedly getting a bit glitchy on the rides by dialing 911.

The feature has set off false alarms for emergency personnel near Cincinnati's Kings Island amusement park.

They've received at least six iPhone emergency calls since the new smartphone went on sale in September.

Similar 911 calls have originated from passengers on a roller coaster at Six Flags Great America near Chicago.

The same crash detection technology is also featured on the Apple Watch 8.

Officials say the fix is simple: Putting the iPhone 14 and the Apple Watch 8 on airplane mode before boarding a roller coaster.
