If you see SOS in the status bar, it means that your iPhone has lost its cellular signal. To fix this, try turning on and off Airplane Mode. This will reset your cellular network settings and make the SOS icon disappear. You may also try removing and reinserting your SIM card. If this does not work, contact your carrier for assistance.

The Emergency SOS feature is designed to save critical time reaching emergency services or contacts. It can be activated manually (by pressing the side button and volume buttons) or automatically (Crash Detection). If you turn off manual shortcuts, iPhone will not call emergency services if you press the side or volume buttons. If you turn off automatic Crash Detection calling, iPhone will send your emergency contacts a text message with your current location, unless you choose to cancel.

However, sometimes the Emergency SOS feature can be triggered accidentally or even unintentionally. Some users report that their iPhone gets stuck on Emergency SOS mode and cannot use the device.
