All you have to do is say “Siri, I’m getting pulled over”
Should you ever find yourself getting pulled over by a police officer and are an iPhone user, say, “Siri, I’m getting pulled over.”
The shortcut has already been around for a while and was mostly known for helping users with saving photos from Instagram or scheduling a morning routine for the user. But Apple is hoping for users to start using Shortcut for more serious reasons.
Just like how police always have bodycams on them, civilians will now have a similar option and will be able to record what happens if they are confronted by a police officer.
Once the user says “Siri, I’m getting pulled over,” the app will contact a predetermined number in the user’s phone alerting them of the user being pulled over or stopped. The phone will then continue to record the situation with the front-facing camera before automatically saving it to Dropbox.
Aside from police issues, many users are starting to realize that they can use the Shortcut app for other serious reasons, such as sending their location to the user’s family if they are lost or are facing a dangerous situation.
