Steps to turn off end call with lock button on iPhone
By default, Prevent Lock to End Calls is disabled on your iPhone. Here’s how you can turn it on.
1. Go to the Settings App on your iPhone.
2. In the Settings Page, search and select Accessibility.
3. In the Physical And Motor menu, tap on Touch.
4. On the next screen, enable the toggle next to the Prevent Lock to End Calls. Once you turn on the toggle, in future, even if you accidentally press the Power Button, it won’t end your call.
From now on, you’re not concerned about the accidental pressing of the Power Button during a call. You can press the Power Key during a call to prevent accidental touch. Also, remember that if Prevent lock to end calls is disabled, pressing the Side Key twice will not reject incoming calls.
