Why Does Asking Siri to Charge Your Phone Call the Cops?

Utter the words-and we don’t suggest you do-“charge my phone 100 percent” to Siri, and your iPhone will try and call the emergency services, after a five-second grace period in which you can cancel it. But why?

It might be a bug. Or, as The Verge suggests, it could be a feature that allows you to secretly call the police if you’re in trouble. It seems unlikely, but stranger things have happened (like a woman getting in touch with Pizza Hut
to save here from a knife attack). So far Apple is yet to confirm why it’s a thing. Any ideas?

Oh and again: don’t try this. Calling the cops without good reason is a dumb idea.
