Apple Says Emergency Calls During Bonnaroo Were Mostly “Butt Dials”

On Target News reported during the week of Bonnaroo that many accidental calls were being made to the Coffee County 911 Communication Center. They began on Tuesday and did not end until the festival closed on June 18.

In total, close to 1,000 accidental 911 calls were made over six days, flooding the communication center.

Many of the calls originated from iPhones, leading public safety officials to initially believe Apple’s new Crash Detection feature on iPhones and Apple Watches.

According to Apple, it became apparent that the accidental calls originating from Bonnaroo were caused by “butt dialing” and not crash detection. Law enforcement said the problem tripled their daily average accidental 911 calls during the festival’s run, resulting in more than fifty hours of overtime work for emergency personnel.
