Emergency SOS in iOS 10.2

In iOS 10.2, pressing the home button 5 times quickly will trigger Emergency SOS. This is a feature that originated on the Apple Watch that will call your country's emergency services number. If you're worried you will accidentally trigger this, there is a countdown and warning sound that will play. You can also disable it, which may be viable, since emergency services can be called already through the lock screen. The only difference is emergency contacts will not be texted. To disable this, go to Settings > General > Emergency SOS and disable "Click Sleep/Wake to Auto Call." Keep in mind that this is in iOS 10.2, which is still in beta.
