Are you tired of accidentally triggering the SOS mode on your iPhone? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered!

In this tutorial, we will guide you through the process of turning off the SOS mode on your iPhone. So let’s get started!

What is SOS Mode?

SOS mode is a built-in feature on iPhones that allows users to quickly call for help in case of an emergency. When activated, it can automatically call emergency services and send a message to your emergency contacts with your location information.

Turning Off SOS Mode on iPhone

If you want to disable this feature and prevent accidental triggers, follow these simple steps:

Step 1: Open your Settings

To begin, locate and tap on the Settings icon on your iPhone’s home screen. It looks like a gear.

Step 2: Access Emergency SOS settings

In the Settings menu, scroll down and look for Emergency SOS. Tap on it to proceed.

Step 3: Disable Auto Call

In the Emergency SOS settings, you will find an option called Auto Call. This feature automatically dials emergency services when you press the power button multiple times quickly. To turn it off, simply toggle the switch next to Auto Call.

Step 4: Remove Emergency Contacts (optional)

If you have previously set up emergency contacts in the Health app, they will receive a message with your location when SOS mode is activated. If you no longer want this functionality or want to change your emergency contacts, tap on Edit Emergency Contacts. You can then remove or update them as needed.


By following these simple steps, you can easily turn off the SOS mode on your iPhone. Remember, it’s always a good idea to keep this feature enabled in case of emergencies, but if accidental activations have become a nuisance, you now know how to disable it. Stay safe!

That’s all there is to it! We hope this tutorial has been helpful in guiding you through the process of turning off the SOS mode on your iPhone. If you have any further questions, feel free to reach out to us.
