Apple Maps: New Accident Reporting feature

The Apple Maps app finally gets the ability to report accidents. The feature was discovered in iOS 14.5 beta and will allow you to report an accident, danger or speed trap on the road.

Essentially, accident data will be collected in a crowdsourcing manner. Crowdsourcing is a form of group internet activity in which a company outsources a task.

The same feature was available for Google Maps and was a key feature of Waze, but Apple Maps, at least, adds a new feature – hands-free reporting. You will be able to use Siri to report something on the go. For example saying “Hey, Siri, there’s a crash up ahead”.

This is just one of the many features of iOS 14.5. The new update will also allow you to set third-party music apps as the default music player for Siri, bypass FaceID while wearing a mask and having an Apple Watch, and finally has dual SIM 5G support.
