Huh.Rian Johnson: Apple won't let movie villains use iPhones on camera

Did the director of Star Wars: The Last Jedi and Knives Out just reveal a secret way to tell who is or isn't a villain? In a video for Vanity Fair, Johnson explained that Apple "lets you use iPhones in movies but, and this is very pivotal if you're ever watching a mystery movie, bad guys cannot have iPhones on camera."
