German politicians might say "No!" to iPhones
According to German newspaper Bild, in order to achieve greater confidentiality, German political figures will most certainly have their devices encrypted by special software developed by Germany's Federal Office for Information Security. When discussing official matters, German politicians will be required to use only devices, compatible with this encryption software. Because iOS doesn't support this software, future members of the Bundestag will have to replace the iPhones in their pockets with other smartphones that support the encryption technology. It is yet unclear if Android-powered devices will support this security software.
