Being the the Leader of the Free World usually comes with phenomenal benefits most U.S. citizens only dream of, but apparently the perks don’t extend to the iPhone.

Despite calling for a boycott on Apple during his campaign, President Donald Trump’s smartphone of choice is still an iPhone, according to a new report that reveals how locked down the device is.

Trump’s staff has allegedly been trying to force him to be more disciplined by limiting his TV watching and screen time with the iPhone. To pull this off, Trump’s iPhone now only has a single app: Twitter.

On his road to the presidency and first few months in the Oval Office, Trump used both an iPhone and an unsecured Android phone to bang out his sensational tweets. The use of the Android phone concerned security experts who were worried the device could be hacked to exploit the president or worse.

It appears that Trump’s staff has finally gotten serious about security. Trump switched to an iPhone in March because it is more secure and receives security updates more frequently than Android phones.
