This Siri shortcut quickly prepares your phone to record the police if needed
Reddit user Robert Petersen has taken advantage of the new Shortcuts automation app in iOS 12 to create a Siri shortcut that's particularly resonant in light of the continuing news around police shootings.
It's basically a workflow that stops whatever you were doing with your iPhone and quickly gets it ready to record your interaction with the police. According to a description of the shortcut, the shortcut pauses any music that might be playing, turns down the phone's brightness, switches on Do Not Disturb so no calls can come in to interrupt you, and it also sends a message to whatever contact you designate. A message that lets them know the police have pulled you over and provides your current location.
