If you have watched any number of scary movies or thrillers you’ve come to assume that a cell phone is wholly worthless when you really need it. Either the battery is dead or somehow in the middle of a large city, there is no service.

When your iPhone’s battery is low and you’re nowhere near a charger, you may find yourself desperately calling out for help from Siri. But be careful. Asking Siri to charge your phone for you will actually cause it to call the police, and you’ll have just five seconds to stop it.
