President Barack Obama revealed that he is not allowed to have an iPhone due to security concerns, explaining his use of a bulky BlackBerry, reports SecurityWeek.
"I'm not allowed for security reasons to have an iPhone," Obama told a group of young people at the White House for an event promoting his health care law. He added that his daughters Sasha and Malia spend a lot of time on their iPhones.
BlackBerry's security has kept the device popular in Washington, despite its rapid loss of market share in the U.S. Obama had to fight to keep a BlackBerry when first entering the office and his emailing has been limited to a very small group of friends and senior officials.
Despite not being able to use an iPhone, Obama has been spotted using the iPad.
