Trump Using iPhone Despite Once Calling for Apple Boycott

At least, that's what Dan Scavino, a senior advisor to the president and the White House's social media director, claims.

The president's close associate also confirmed that Mr Trump is still very much in control of his own tweets.

It may seem silly to care what type of smartphone a public figure uses, but in the case of President Donald Trump, it's a national security issue.

Security experts questioned Trump's initial decision to continue using his Android phone in the White House, and may find his use of an iPhone reassuring. Freshly elected to head the world's leading power, Donald Trump used his old Samsung Galaxy S3 to tweeter or consult documents of great importance.

"Apple ought to give the security for that phone, okay?" They went on to say that "security risks associated with the use of an unsecured phone include hackers' ability to access the device to turn on audio recording and camera features, as well as engaging surveillance tools that allow location and other information tracking features". But @realDonaldTrump tweets marked as coming from "Twitter for Android" kept appearing.

As President of the United States, Donald Trump has access to some very sensitive information, so USA intelligence agencies must ensure that he has the most secure smartphone possible.

Late last night, Dan Scavino Jr., who now heads up the social media accounts of Donald Trump, relayed that Trump not only fires off tweets on his own, but does so using a brand new iPhone. It's also likely that Trump is using the new (RED) iPhone 7 seeing that he's been using it for the last "couple of weeks".

Pundits used to divine whether Trump or his staff tweeted something based on the phone it was sent with.

Although Trump blasted his tweets from an Android device, as well as from Twitter's web interface, he did not stop using an iPhone. While on the campaign trail, he called for a boycott of Apple's devices until the company complied with the government's demand to help unlock the iPhone 5c used by one of the San Bernardino shooters.
