Please forgive if this is the wrong forum for this question and feel free to move it to the appropriate forum.Lets say for instance hypothetically you were pulled over in a traffic stop in your vehicle by the police and you decided to record the incident audio & video on your phone just for you're own safety and to have everything documented you never know......Some cops lie just like everyone else.

Let's say officer not so friendly didn't appreciate being recorded and decided he would just disregard your rights under the constitution and seize your phone and delete the recording.

My question is their a way to lock the phone down that would prevent someone from them from getting access to the phone menu.?

I haven't had my iPhone that long and the limited use I've had using the passcode lock even with the setting immediately option it still takes a few minutes and I'm able to access any settings on the phone.

Seems to me their should be an option to lock the phone down with just a push of a button unless their is and I don't know about it ?

Click record then hit the power button. Providing the password lock is set then it would be required to unlock and stop the recording. Well a hard reset or power off would stop recording dead.

But with the actual device in hand the cops could gain access. Tho it would require a warrant

You can lock it while recording, but in the same hypothetical situation the cop can simply take the phone (and throw it away somewhere after turning it off) and/or simply just break it.
