In September, online hackers uploaded nude pics of celebrities to the Internet. The graphic photos were reportedly stolen from Apple iPhone's iCloud service. It should be noted that Apple has denied the allegations.
After suffering through the public humiliation of having their private and personal moments exposed to the world, celebrities such as Rihanna (pictured above) have gone back to using old skool flip phones to protect their privacy.

Some boldface names from Hollywood and high fashion are using clunky old flip phones instead of smartphones, Michael Musto notes in The New York Times. Stars like Scarlett Johansson, Rihanna, and Kate Beckinsale are walking around with LG clamshells and other vintage 2000s cellphones, as are Anna Wintour, Iggy Pop, Musto himself, and politicians like New York City Mayor Bill De Blasio and Sen. Chuck Schumer.
Flip phones don't store photos in iCloud, and it's hard to hack grainy low-res photos from a clamshell handset. Rihanna and Scarlett Johansson, at least, have a good reason to use a phone that's a mostly just a phone.
