We live in strange times. President Trump raised a lot of concerns when he brought his typical consumer Android phone to the Oval Office with him when he won the presidency. His predecessor, President Obama, dumped his beloved Blackberry for a specialized phone once he was in office to minimize hacking risks. The current President opted not to, and continued using his unsecured Android phone, which we were reminded of every time he sent a tweet. The administration has finally wised up, however, and given the President - who once called for a boycott of Apple - an iPhone. But is he even using it?

So is President Trump using his new, secure iPhone or not? He's not friendly towards Apple and Apple sure isn't friendly towards him, having been critical of his administration. Is the iPhone just a stunt to calm the members of Congress who wrote letters complaining about his use of an unsecured phone, while the President continues using his Android phone? Is the world a strange place?
Yes, yes it is.
