President Trump has long been known for having a formidable presence on Twitter, via his Android phone. He has his personal Twitter account, as well as the official POTUS account. The president also has a personal account on Facebook, as well as the official POTUS Facebook account.\nBut now President Trump has finally dumped his old Android device and moved to Apple\u2019s iPhone instead for his social media needs, according to Dan Scavino (the official White House Director of Social Media).\nScavino mentioned the president\u2019s change in a recent tweet:\n\n.@POTUS @realDonaldTrump has been using his new iPhone for the past couple of weeks here on Twitter. Yes, it is #POTUS45 reading & tweeting!\nMore at Twitter\n\nAndroid\u2019s security problems\nIt\u2019s not surprising that President Trump finally made the switch to the iPhone, given Android\u2019s security problems. The Samsung phone that the president was using apparently had a lot of security issues, according to a report by Kaveh Waddell at The Atlantic:\n\nWhat happened? Some reporters speculated that Trump may have finally gotten an iPhone. Perhaps that old, unsecured Samsung\u2014so old, in fact, it can\u2019t run the newest, safest version of the Android operating system\u2014had been wrested from Trump\u2019s fingers from a brave, security-conscious aide.\nThat would\u2019ve been a relief to security experts who had warned for months about the dangers of Trump\u2019s attachment to that phone. The device, likely a Samsung Galaxy S3, has such serious security problems that it\u2019s probably \u201ccompromised by at least one\u2014probably multiple\u2014hostile foreign intelligence services and is actively being exploited,\u201d according to Nicholas Weaver, a security researcher at the University of California, Berkeley.\nThat would mean that foreign agents could be listening on his private conversations, monitoring him as he moves around the country, and potentially seeing the world through the eyes of his smartphone camera.\nMore at The Atlantic\n\nI\u2019m sure that the president\u2019s decision to switch to the iPhone will come as a relief to the Secret Service and other security professionals inside the government. While no mobile device is perfect in terms of security, Android is know for being particularly bad depending on the phone and its manufacturer.\nWhat people are saying about President Trump\u2019s switch to the iPhone\nAs you might imagine, the news about President Trump using an iPhone caught the attention of folks over at AppleInsider and they shared their thoughts in a long thread.\nI\u2019ll leave you with this selection of comments from the thread:\n\nAl_lias: \u201cSince Trump won't stop tweeting, might as well tweet from a more secure device than before, right?\u201d\nDamn_its_hot: \u201cI think this is simply a case of Trump acclimating to a group of so-called-experts [FBI, NSA, CIA, Homeland] that needed to respond and make it known what was the most secure, what preserved Americans rights under the Constitution\/B of R, etc\u2026\nAs with the FBI 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. I would think that Samsundg have the damn things spontaneously errupting in to a VERY hot ball of fire was good enough to toss the Samsung, but was the FBI even concerned -- NOT!\nTrump has a lot more resources to point him in the right direction, and has taken advantage of it on occasion. \u201d\nWood1208: \u201cInstead of criticizing Mr. Trump, say Hala Lu Ya!! At-last president got to senses that iPhone is way more secured. Because Bad old habits using android don't die fast, he might use android phone here and there to tweet.But, for nation's important communication, he is good on using iPhone. \u201d\nQwwera: \u201cAn iPhone in Rose Orange. With the voice of Hannity for Siri.\u201d\nSoli: \u201c1) Obama had a hardened Blackberry.\n2) I thought the Gov't had also approved certain Android-based vendors. \u201d\nMore at AppleInsider\n\nDid you miss a post?
