Three weeks after calling for Apple boycott, Donald Trump is tweeting from his iPhone againRepublican presidential hopeful Donald Trump's call for a boycott of Apple products didn't last long — his official Twitter account has been posting regularly from an iPhone, just three weeks after he vowed to stop.
An avid iPhone user, Trump called for a boycott of Apple last month, saying the company should comply with government requests to build software to unlock an encrypted iPhone 5c connected to the San Bernardino terrorist attack.
But this week, Trump's account has featured tweets actually sent from an iPhone multiple times, as noticed by The Verge.
Prior to calling for the boycott in a speech in South Carolina three weeks ago, Trump tweeted via his iPhone less than an hour earlier. Afterward, new tweets were sent out from the Web and an Android device.
"I use both iPhone & Samsung," Trump wrote on Twitter. "If Apple doesn't give info to authorities on the terrorists I'll only be using Samsung until they give info."
Trump currently leads the GOP field in both delegates and polls. His next big contest is next Tuesday, when 99 delegates are at stake in Florida's winner-take-all primary.
