Troubleshooting Tips: How to Fix an iPhone Stuck in Emergency SOS Mode

If your iPhone suddenly gets stuck in the emergency SOS mode, it can be a confusing and frustrating situation. There are several reasons why this might happen, such as accidental operation, system crashes, jailbreak failure, or accidentally enabling the emergency SOS mode within the Settings app. Fortunately, there are some troubleshooting remedies that can help you resolve this issue.

One of the first things you can try is performing a force restart on your iPhone. This can help fix system glitches that may be causing the problem. The method for force restarting differs depending on the iPhone model you have. For iPhone 8 or later, quickly press the volume up button, then the volume down button, and finally hold down the side button until you see the Apple logo. For iPhone 7/7 Plus, press and hold the power and volume down buttons until the Apple logo appears. For iPhone 6s and earlier, simultaneously press and hold the power button and home key until the Apple logo appears.

If a force restart doesn’t work, you can try switching off your iPhone and charging it for about an hour. After charging, turn it back on and check if the issue is resolved.

Another solution is to restore your iPhone through iTunes. Make sure you have the latest version of iTunes installed on your computer. Connect your iPhone to your computer, open iTunes, and select your device. Go to the Summary tab and choose the Restore iPhone option. This will restore your iPhone to its factory settings. After completing the setup process, you can restore your iTunes backup or select files through FoneTool.

If restoring doesn’t work, you can try putting your iPhone in Recovery mode. Connect your iPhone to your computer and follow the force restart process mentioned earlier. When prompted, choose the Update option and wait for the process to complete.

If none of these methods work, your best option is to contact Apple Support for further assistance. They can provide you with troubleshooting advice or you can visit a local Apple Store to have your iPhone professionally examined and fixed.

By following these troubleshooting tricks, you should be able to resolve the issue of your iPhone being stuck in emergency SOS mode.
