image for ‘Hey Siri, I’m getting pulled over’: iPhone feature will record police interaction, send location

One iPhone user created a shortcut that prompts an iPhone to begin recording police interactions by the user simply uttering the phrase: “Hey Siri, I’m getting pulled over.”.

Twitter user Robert Petersen posted a link to the shortcut and an explanation of what it does.

Users can download the police shortcut, but must make sure to have the Shortcuts app installed.

While Petersen said he hopes the tool will be useful for some, the specific feature is not available for Android users.

Apple’s “Shortcuts” feature allows users to “create your own shortcuts with multiple steps,” according to the company’s website. »
