Siri shortcut can turn your iPhone into a body cam

LAS VEGAS (KTNV) - There's a new way to turn your iPhone into a body cam to record your interaction with police when you get pulled over.

It's possible through a new feature with Apple's latest iOS 12. The newest iOS allows you to download an app called Shortcuts.

Shortcuts allows used to build their own intricate demands for Siri that may involve using multiple apps instead of just one.

An Arizona-based developer created a shortcut called "Police".

Once you go through all the steps to make sure the shortcut works, you should be able to say "Hey Siri, I'm getting pulled over."

"If people want to add more and more technology to their lives, the police have nothing to fear about this," said 13 Action News Crime and Safety Expert Retired Metro Lieutenant Randy Sutton.

The shortcut will also text your video and location information to someone you choose to be your emergency contact.

The creator admits the vast majority of the time this shortcut won't even be necessary.
