Apple Bans iPhones for Certain Characters

iPhones are a part of life, even if you don't have one yourself. It would make sense that modern movies reflect real life, but Apple has some caveats.

Rian Johnson, the writer and director of the hit film, "Knives Out" revealed to Vanity Fair that Apple will allow their phones to be used in movies as long as the character using it is not a "bad guy." So if you're a bad guy, no iPhone for you!

(Spoiler alert: If you watch Knives Out, many characters have iPhones except for the one who did it)

Interestingly enough, companies can and do get their legal team involved when a product is used without their permission especially if a movie-goer thinks the brand is condoning that type of behavior. For example, Budweiser was not happy when the main character of the movie Flight, an alcoholic pilot, was drinking Budweiser and asked the film company to remove their image.

So if you're ever trying to figure out who the bad guy is, check to see if they're using an iPhone.
