US President Barack Obama confirmed on Wednesday that he is not allowed to use an iPhone because of security concerns. Instead the president must use an aging, but secure BlackBerry handset, says a report in Security Week.
Although BlackBerry made a very late entry in the cross-platform messaging apps race, a lot of iPhone and Android users (over 20 million) seem to be using BBM to communicate.
Earlier today, BlackBerry updated BBM for iPhone with a fix for a crash that could happen when sending or receiving images. While that issue is fixed, it appears users are facing another issue, this time when trying with the app’s contact list.
BlackBerry released BBM for iPhone a couple of days ago, but yesterday’s iOS 7.0.3 release breaks compatibility with the app, and causes crashes when sending or receiving pictures. After the crash, you won’t be able to chat with that user again.
