Apple Maps testing the new feature to Speed Checks, Report Accidents

This update will be available on Apple Maps to allow users report the accidents, dangers and speed tests before driving to a destination. New Apple updates are now only available for iOS 14.5 but are expected to be initiated for the next iOS update over the next few days. The most recent features are very similar to incident notifications from Google Maps and Waze. Siri may also be used by users of Apple Maps to report a voice incident.


An update of Apple Maps application on the iOS 14.5 beta tracks hazards, accidents and speed controls. A latest report button for the new feature emerged in addition to the existing Add Share ETA,  Details, Stop and Audio features. By tapping on this button, users choose the type of incident or hazard they need to report.

There is also an open option to report accidents through Siri. You are then going to record an accident while you are driving, "Hey Siri! There's an accident on the road."


Apple Maps can use a lot of reports for all users to indicate accidents. The way users report Google Maps or Waze accidents is very close. The report by MacRumors notes that, apart from iOS phones, accidents often occur with CarPlay systems. The role will, however, possibly only be checked on a limited number of people in the US, since all iOS 14.5 users did not use the function on their smartphones.

However, it is also very likely that now the public release of iOS 14.5 would provide an audience with incidence data. Apple is now expected to be available across time accident reporting for all major markets.


Details of hazards, accidents and speed controls by users were first available on Waze. But the same service was launched by Google Maps in March 2019. Apple can now reach further users with same functionality.
