    So was getting on the motorbike yesterday; and my iPhone 7 Plus iOS 11 beta 4 decided to call '112' (believe the European number for 999) & send a message to each of my emergency contacts.

    Question is; I'm trying to work out what caused it - as far as I'm aware to activate the feature you'd need to press the power button 5 times & then slide to select emergency sos; which is impossible from within the loose pocket I had just placed it in. Even if the power button had been pressed with a capacitive screen it would have been very difficult to activate the slide gesture.

    This was order of events -

    Pause episode of Planet of the Apps
    Navigate to Music playlist & play
    Lock iPhone, place in pocket
    Pop a Beatsx earphone in
    Music stopped playing
    Attempted to play music again via beats controls
    Then heard siren sound/alert & had to quickly end the call.

    Anyone else had Emergency SOS activate without intention?? - its not a feature I want to be playing around with to try to replicate.

    Do you have it set to “Auto Call” under Emergency SOS settings?

    Interestingly no; this was safely off (or presumed safely off)
