One of the most annoying features of iOS is the power button ending calls on your iPhone. While the ability to use the side button of your iPhone to end a call can be useful in some instances, it can also cause you to accidentally end calls when trying to lock your screen.
Prior to the release of iOS 16, pressing the lock button did not end calls exclusively when your iPhone was on speaker phone or you had headphones connected to your device. But now, there is an easy fix to the problem. If your iPhone’s power button ending calls is a frustrating issue for you, follow the steps listed below to solve it.
Easy fix for power button ending calls on iPhone
Before you start, make sure that your iPhone is running iOS 16. Learn how to install the latest software update here if you have not done so already.
- Launch Settings from the Home screen of your iPhone.
- Tap on Accessibility.
- Next, tap Touch.
- Scroll to the bottom and switch the toggle for Prevent Lock to End Call to ON.
Now, when you press the side button of your iPhone, your ongoing call will remain active. Note that when the Lock to End Call option is enabled, you will not be able to decline an incoming call by pressing the side button twice.
