Are you tired of accidentally triggering the SOS feature on your iPhone 11? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered! In this tutorial, we will show you how to turn off SOS on your iPhone 11, ensuring that you won’t accidentally make emergency calls anymore.

Step 1: Open the Settings App

To begin, unlock your iPhone 11 and locate the Settings app. It’s represented by a gear icon and can usually be found on the home screen or in the app drawer. Tap on it to open the Settings app.

Step 2: Access Emergency SOS Settings

In the Settings app, scroll down until you find “Emergency SOS” or “Emergency SOS & Auto Call.” Tap on it to access the emergency settings.


If your iPhone is running iOS 14 or later, you may need to navigate to “Emergency SOS” under the “Privacy” section within the Settings app.

Step 3: Disable Auto Call

Within the Emergency SOS settings page, you’ll see an option called “Auto Call.” This feature automatically calls emergency services when you rapidly press the side button five times in a row. To turn off this feature, simply toggle the switch next to “Auto Call” to the off position.


Disabling Auto Call doesn’t disable all aspects of the SOS feature; it only prevents automatic emergency calls from being made when pressing the side button rapidly. You can still manually trigger an emergency call if needed.

Step 4: Customize Emergency Contacts (Optional)

If you want to set up specific contacts that can be reached quickly in case of an emergency, scroll further down within Emergency SOS settings until you see “Set up Emergency Contacts.” Tap on it to add your emergency contacts.


Make sure that you have added the desired contacts to your iPhone’s Contacts app before proceeding with this step.

Step 5: Test the Changes

Now that you’ve disabled Auto Call and customized your emergency contacts if desired, it’s a good idea to test the changes. Press the side button rapidly five times to simulate an emergency situation and ensure that it no longer triggers an automatic call.


By following these simple steps, you can easily turn off the SOS feature on your iPhone 11. Remember, disabling Auto Call doesn’t completely disable the SOS feature, but it prevents accidental emergency calls when pressing the side button rapidly. Now you can use your iPhone without worrying about triggering unwanted emergencies!
