Have you ever accidentally triggered the Emergency SOS feature on your iPhone? It can be quite alarming when your phone starts blaring a siren and counting down from three. While it’s a useful feature in emergencies, it can be an annoyance if triggered accidentally. So, how do you turn off Emergency SOS on an iPhone? In this blog post, we’ll guide you through the steps to disable this feature and also explain what “SOS only” means on an iPhone and how to get rid of it. Let’s dive in!
How to turn off Emergency SOS on an iPhone
If you have an iPhone, you might have accidentally triggered the Emergency SOS feature at some point. To turn off this feature, follow these simple steps:
1. Open the Settings app on your iPhone.
2. Tap on “Emergency SOS” from the list of options.
3. Toggle off “Auto Call” if it’s turned on.
4. If you want to completely disable Emergency SOS, toggle off “Call with Side Button.”
That’s it! With just a few taps in your settings, you can easily turn off Emergency SOS and avoid any accidental triggers in the future.
It’s worth noting that while turning off Auto Call will prevent your phone from automatically calling emergency services after a countdown ends, you can still manually call for help by pressing and holding down the side button and volume button simultaneously until the Emergency SOS slider appears.
Now that we’ve covered how to turn off Emergency SOS let’s explore what “SOS only” means on an iPhone and how to get rid of it.
What “SOS only” means on an iPhone, and how to get rid of it
If you’ve ever seen the “SOS only” message on your iPhone, it means that your device is only able to connect to emergency services. This could happen if you’re in an area with poor cellular reception or if there’s a problem with your network provider.
While this feature can be helpful in emergency situations, it can also be frustrating when you need to make a regular phone call or use data. But don’t worry – there are ways to get rid of the “SOS only” message and restore regular service.
First, try restarting your iPhone by holding down the power button until the “slide to power off” option appears. Slide the bar across to turn off your device, wait a few seconds, then hold down the power button again until the Apple logo appears.
If that doesn’t work, check for any updates to iOS and install them if necessary. You can do this by going into Settings > General > Software Update.
If neither of those options works, try resetting your network settings by going into Settings > General > Reset > Reset Network Settings. This will erase all Wi-Fi passwords and other network-related information from your device, so make sure you have these written down somewhere before proceeding.
While seeing “SOS only” on an iPhone might cause panic at first glance rest assured there are easy solutions for getting back online quickly!
