And that's because, in the words of Dan Scavino, the president's director of social media, the president has a new smartphone. One US Congressman even requested a formal investigation into the President's smartphone and Twitter activities.

"The national security risks of compromising a smartphone used by a senior government official, such as the President of the United States, are considerable", two Democratic senators wrote in a letter to Defense Secretary James Mattis last month asking for more information about the president's mobile devices.

As with the Federal Bureau of Investigation they did not have anyone that was comfortable to make such a decision so they hired and/or bought a set of unsupported tools to hack the iPhone.

It's not surprising that President Trump finally made the switch to the iPhone, given Android's security problems. As we've explained before, Trump's old Samsung Galaxy phone is very old and insecure, making it a hacking target, while also potentially allowing the president to violate the Presidential Records Act. Apple refused to unlock the phone used by a deceased man officials say is a terrorist, and government hackers were having a hard time unlocking it, at least until they bought an exploit from a third party.

In terms of success on the recruiting trail, nothing is more important than advancing in the tournament. "Nobody looks at that". The last three-pointer was a jump shot by freshman Rui Hachimura, who was sent in for the final minute of the game.

Prior to Trump's inauguration, the New York Times reported that Trump traded in his Android phone for a secure, encrypted device approved by the Secret Service; the Associated Press reported the same thing.

So while you might think you'll be able to do anything you want when you become president, that's not actually the case.

Donald Trump using an iPhone is also a sign that the highest ranking official is warming towards Apple. Trump's aides, however, continued tweeting from Twitter for iPhone. However, it seems more possible that the announcement may have been planned to coincide with the Office of American Innovation announcement. In fact, it was recently revealed that Trump is now busy using a brand new iPhone.

"During a campaign rally previous year, Trump called for people to boycott Apple products because the technology giant refused to unlock the iPhone involved in the San Bernardino shootings", NBC notes.
