Sometimes when carrying my iPhone X in my pocket, it starts making calls on its own. It calls the same person every time (my father).
The phone is configured as such:
- Phone locked
- Face ID activated
- Emergency contacts are set up in Health app - my father is one of them, but there are a few others, both before and after him on the list
- In Settings → Emergency SOS I have:
Call with side button: Off and
Call automatically: Off
- "Today" screen: I do not have the Favorites widget or any other widget for making calls.
I have tried reproducing the problem by holding the right and top left side buttons pressed, but this only gives me the screen with a Swipe to turn off, Emergency info and Emergency SOS. No matter what I do, it does not just set up a call.
What makes my phone want to call my father seemingly randomly, and what can I do to make it stop?
