Disputed report says that U.K. Ministry of Defense picked the Apple iPhone 7 to handle secure calls
According to Steve Bunn, technical business manager for defense at BT, the Ministry of Defense originally started working on a dual-persona device using the Samsung Galaxy Note 4. But Bunn said that BT decided that the Android powered phablet was not secure enough to do the job, and switched to developing the iPhone 7 instead. Additionally, many inside the Defense Ministry already use the iPhone 7, which supposedly played a big part in the decision.
However, there seems to be some infighting at British Telecom. A spokesman for BT said that the U.K. Ministry of Defense is still testing other handsets for dual-persona capabilities, and disputed Bunn's comments about the lack of security found with the Galaxy Note 4.
As soon as we hear some definitive word from the U.K. Defense Ministry or British Telecom, we will pass it along to you.
