When Emergency SOS is enabled on your Apple Watch, an emergency call will automatically be dialed for an Ambulance, Police, or Fire and your emergency contacts by sharing your current location. But, these Emergency SOS alert was faked on a rollercoaster ride in theme parks and amusement centers. In a rollercoaster ride, you will experience sudden pressure changes, increased G-forces, abrupt speeds, and loud noises. These will trigger the Emergency SOS on your Apple Watch. To sort out this issue temporarily, Apple requested to turn off the Emergency SOS during rollercoaster rides. Let’s see how to turn off the Emergency SOS on Apple Watch.
