Apple Maps is finally getting crowdsourced accident reporting. The feature was unearthed in the iOS 14.5 beta and will allow you to report an accident, hazard or speed trap on the road.

The same sought-after feature has been available for Google Maps and has been a staple of Waze, but Apple Maps adds a new element – hands-free reporting. You will be able to use Siri to report something on the go. For instance saying “Hey, Siri, there’s a crash up ahead”.

This is only one of the features to become part of iOS 14.5. It will also let you set third-party music apps as default player for Siri, bypassing FaceID while wearing a mask if you have an Apple Watch and bring dual-SIM 5G support.
