Edward Snowden says Apple's iPhone has secret spyware that lets the government spy on you. Snowden's lawyer, Anatoly Kucherena, commented on behalf of Edward:
"Edward never uses an iPhone, he's got a simple phone," Anatoly Kucherena told Russian news agency RIA Novosti. "The iPhone has special software that can activate itself without the owner having to press a button and gather information about him, that's why on security grounds he refused to have this phone." The lawyer added that Snowden's decision not to use an iPhone stemmed from a concern for professional privacy rather than from a dislike for the device.
