President Barack Obama Has No iPhone Due To “Security Reasons”Despite being what many would deem to be the most powerful man in the world, President Barack Obama is still bound by certain rules and regulations. For instance, as much as he would like to use an iPhone as his regular communications device, he is unable to do so because of “security reasons”. In fact, when President Barack Obama jumped on board as the President of the U.S., you could more or less say that he and the BlackBerry were virtually inseparable. When he attempted to work out a deal for a “cooler” handset to use in the Oval Office, he ended up with a BlackBerry 8830 World Edition that carried a special app within known as SecureVoice, which ironically delivered top secret information from the NSA.

His two daughters, however, are iPhone users, and he did share that he has an iPad 2 but does not own an iPhone. That iPad 2 is extra special, since it was given to him by the late Steve Jobs over a Silicon Valley dinner a couple of years ago. So far, President Obama claims that only 10 people have his personal email address, which is interesting to note since it would be easy to keep track of incoming mail each day.
