The president famously f ought to bring his BlackBerry into the Oval Office when he was first elected. He won the battle and was given an upgraded, secure device to become the nation's first e-mailing president.

But now it seems he's hoping to upgrade his smartphone.

The president has an Apple iPad and admits to loving the device, but has not been given the green light to get an iPhone.

"I am not allowed, for security reasons, to have an iPhone," he explained at a White House Youth Summit last year. "I have noticed that Sasha and Malia seem to spend a lot of time on it."
