Obama says he can’t use iPhone due to security, must use BlackBerry
No amount of hope or change can set President Obama up with an iPhone.
The leader of the free world said he is not allowed to use the popular Apple device due to security reasons, according to Reuters.
Obama revealed the limitation of his job at a meeting with youths on Wednesday to promote his healthcare law, the Affordable Care Act.
But it’s not all bad for the president. Obama said he may not be allowed to use an iPhone, but he does get to use the iPad as his tablet. He also joked that his daughters are allowed to use Apple devices.
Instead of an iPhone, Obama uses a BlackBerry.
The president notably fought to keep using his BlackBerry after coming into office in 2009. Back then, the move made him seem like a cool president, but these days, using a BlackBerry is about as cool as owning a car phone.
