Honestly sounds like a solution in search of a problem. How many motorists are really involved in crashes where all occupants are unconscious but still alive, who will not be quickly spotted by another motorist, and within cell/emergency service range?

I was in a near emergency once, found 19 percent charge because my battery was constantly looking for service in a area with no coverage. First thing I did was turn my iPhone off because it’s not smart enough to manage battery life

I would imagine that people falling asleep at the wheel and hitting a telephone pole or in a ditch in a rural area would be a situation that stands out and would be somewhat common. Also, relying on people to stop and help is not really a great option. Many many people would just drive on by.

Yep. Apple loves to add feel-good features that always end up being way more hassle than they're worth.

Just like the "dial 911" button on the Apple watch that is also the power button
