To take your iPhone off SOS mode, you can follow these simple steps:
Step 1: Unlock Your iPhone
If your iPhone is locked, press the home button or swipe up from the bottom of the screen (depending on your iPhone model) to unlock it.
Step 2: Open Control Center
Swipe down from the top right corner of the screen to open the Control Center. On older iPhone models, swipe up from the bottom of the screen.
Step 3: Turn Off SOS Mode
In the Control Center, you’ll see various options and settings. Look for the SOS button, which is represented by a circle with an outline and a phone icon inside it.
It may be red or green, depending on your iPhone’s settings.
Note: If you have accidentally triggered SOS mode, your iPhone may display a countdown timer before automatically calling emergency services. To cancel this call, tap on “Cancel” when prompted.
To turn off SOS mode, simply tap on the SOS button in the Control Center. This action will disable all emergency features associated with SOS mode.
If you prefer not to use Control Center to turn off SOS mode, you can also disable it through your iPhone’s Settings app:
- Step 1: Open the Settings app on your iPhone’s home screen.
- Step 2: Scroll down and tap on “Emergency SOS.”
- Step 3: In Emergency SOS settings, toggle off “Call with Side Button” to prevent accidental triggering of SOS mode when pressing and holding the side button on your iPhone.
- Step 4: You can also disable “Auto Call” to prevent your iPhone from automatically calling emergency services after a designated countdown period.
Note: Disabling “Auto Call” will require you to manually make an emergency call by swiping the Emergency SOS slider in the SOS mode screen.
By following these simple steps, you can easily take your iPhone off SOS mode and resume regular usage. Remember to exercise caution when using the SOS feature, as it is designed for emergencies only.
