After eight years of using BlackBerrys, the more than 17,000 employees at Immigration and Customs Enforcement are making the switch to the iPhone, the New York Times reports [2].

The $2.1 million contract with Apple suggests that law enforcement no longer considers BlackBerrys to be more secure, New York Times reported.

In fact, Apple has surpassed BlackBerrys in cutting-edge technology, federal government officials said in making the switch.

ICE said it had “evolving mobile law enforcement business requirements that require the use of more capable and dynamic mobile technology.”
