When you find yourself in a difficult situation where your iPhone 13 is stuck in SOS mode, it can be frustrating and overwhelming. SOS mode is a feature that allows you to quickly call emergency services when you need it. However, if it’s activated by mistake, it can be a headache to turn off. Luckily, there are a few simple steps you can take to get your iPhone 13 out of SOS mode.
Step 1: Turn off the Emergency SOS feature
The first step to getting your iPhone 13 out of SOS mode is to turn off the Emergency SOS feature. To do this, go to the Settings app on your iPhone 13 and select the Emergency SOS option. From there, turn off the Auto Call and Countdown Sound options. This will prevent your iPhone 13 from automatically calling emergency services when you press the side button five times in a row.
Step 2: Restart your iPhone 13
If turning off the Emergency SOS feature doesn’t work, the next step is to restart your iPhone 13. To do this, press and hold the side button and either volume button until the slider appears. Slide the power off slider to the right, wait a few seconds, then press and hold the side button again until the Apple logo appears. This will restart your iPhone 13 and may help get it out of SOS mode.
Step 3: Check your SIM card
If restarting your iPhone 13 doesn’t work, the issue may be with your SIM card. Try removing your SIM card and reinserting it. Make sure it’s properly seated in the tray and that the tray is securely closed. Then, turn your iPhone 13 back on and see if the SOS mode has been turned off.
Step 4: Update your iPhone 13
If none of the above steps work, it’s possible that your iPhone 13 needs a software update. To check for updates, go to the Settings app and select General, then Software Update. If an update is available, follow the on-screen instructions to install it. This may help resolve any issues with your iPhone 13, including getting it out of SOS mode.
