Billionaire Warren Buffett has finally become the proud owner of smartphones, according tomedia Outlet The Verge. The 89-year-old business tycoon, who owns 5.6 percent of Apple, recently told CNBC that he has replaced the Samsung Haven flip phone with the iPhone 11.
Buffett is also understood to have used the antique flip phone last year. But he recently pointed out that he had officially abandoned the flip phone, although he didn’t mention what model the iPhone 11 he was using. “My flip phone has disappeared forever, ” says Mr Buffett. “
Buffett told CNBC that instead of buying the iPhone, he received “gifts” from many people, including Apple CEO Tim Cook. Mr. Cook has been trying to get Mr. Buffett to at least switch to Apple-made devices. Cook even told Bloomberg In 2018 that he would fly to Omaha and provide technical support to Buffett if needed.
Even if Mr. Buffett finally gets a new machine, he says he mainly uses his iPhone to make calls. Buffett also owns an iPad, which is used primarily to research and view stock prices.
