Snowden Refuses To Use iPhone Due To Hidden Spyware

Fact checked

Does Apple put hidden Spyware into it’s Iphone devices? 

According to Edward Snowden’s lawyer “Edward never uses an iPhone; he’s got a simple phone … 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 whistleblower recently revealed via published documents that the NSA and GCHQ uses the iPhone UDID system to track users. So there may be something to genuinely worry about when it comes to his lawyers latest remarks.

There is nothing, as yet, in any of Snowden’s leaks to confirm that Apple iPhone’s do contain Spyware, so we’ll be keeping an eye on this story as it progresses.
