The SOS we’re discussing here displays on your iPhone’s upper-status bar, in the spot normally occupied by your cellular connection. This article isn’t about setting off an SOS alert on your iPhone; rather, it’s about what the SOS icon on your iPhone’s status bar represents and how to get rid of it.
How can you fix SOS on iPhone?
The obvious solution is to move back into a region with better reception. But if you’re at a spot where you’ve reliably connected in the past, it’s conceivable your phone isn’t picking up the signal correctly.
To disable cellular data, scroll down from the screen’s top right corner, then hit the green symbol that represents it. If it doesn’t remind your iPhone that it should have a good connection, you may always try a soft reset.
If you press and hold the side button and the lower volume button at the same time for roughly three seconds, a new screen will appear with two sliders and a cancel icon. To turn off your phone, swipe the power button on top to the right. Wait a few seconds for it to finish powering down, and then press and hold the side button to turn it back on.
That should be all; once your phone detects a connection, the SOS icon will disappear from the status bar.
