UK Government Blocked Apple Watch from Cabinet Meetings

UK ministers have been banned from wearing Apple Watches during cabinet meetings, due to fear that the devices could be hacked to become listening devices for Russian spies.

Apple iPads and iPhones were outlawed from Cabinet meetings in 2013 due to similar concerns. It’s unclear what devices have been approved for use during Cabinet meetings.

The smartwatch ban is not without precedent. Mobile phones have also been barred from cabinet meetings in the UK, due to similar fear about their potential to become listening devices.

Russian hackers were responsible for the latest leaking of Olympic athlete medical information.
