President Obama said that he cannot have an iPhone due to ‘security issues’
President Barack Obama was attending a meeting with the youth on Wednesday to promote the healthcare law. During the talk, he said that he was not allowed to use the iPhone for “security reasons.” However, he is still allowed to use an iPad.
According to former National Security Agency (NSA) Edward Snowden, Apple was one out of several companies that allowed the NSA to have direct access to servers that contains customer data.
President Obama even had to argue for keeping his BlackBerry after coming to the White House in 2009. There are only 10 people that have his personal e-mail address. Both George W. Bush and Bill Clinton did not use e-mail during their presidency.
