An Apple Watch or iPhone that inadvertently keeps calling 9-1-1 is not ly annoying, but can also be a problem for local authorities.

According to the user, the telephe will send an emergency SOS when it is not being handled, for example when it is a table or in the passenger seat of a vehicle.
The Redditor ctacted Apple Support, who ly told them to remove the cover from their iPhone to see if the problem solved. And so, if this happens to you, we recommend that you remove it to see that it solves the problem.

If all else fails …
If ne of these adjustments work for you, this may be due to an error in recent versis of iOS (as the original Redditor had thought). In these cases, you may need to resolve the issue ly until Apple provides a soluti.
