Next, follow the on-screen instructions that appear once None is selected. This includes pressing and quickly releasing the Volume Up button, then pressing and quickly releasing the Volume Down button and finally holding down the Side button until you see the Apple logo appear on your screen.

By doing this, you have now successfully turned off Emergency Call from appearing on your iPhone lock screen! Now if someone tries to access your phone without knowing its PIN or passcode they won’t be able to use this feature for help – only for calling emergency services in an actual emergency situation.
