Speaking to ABC News, president Obama said, "Steve Jobs actually gave it to me, a little bit early. Yeah, it was cool. I got it directly from him."
The handover could have taken place at the infamous dinner in February, at which Obama, Google's Eric Schmidt and Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg were also present. Though presumably Jobs waited till after, rather than handing it over during the main course.
So that leaves us with one question: has Obama already got an iPhone 4S? Answers on a postcard sent from the Card app, or hit us up on our Facebook page.
