U.S. Army Moves from Android to iPhone

Posted July 19, 2016 at 10:27pm

The Telegraph (UK) reports that “the US army is upgrading its fleet of Android phones and replacing them with iPhones.”  

“The switch to the iPhone 6s comes after the US Army Special Operations Command found its ‘Android Tactical Assault Kit’ slow, glitchy and prone to freezing, according to reports.”  

“Tactical Assault Kits are modified versions of popular smartphones, such as the Samsung Galaxy Note, that are connected to a networked Harris radio, and designed to run custom-made military apps.”
