Is iOS really safer than Android?
For Apple, at least, the answer is very positive.
In response to the European Commission's digital market action, Apple cited Nokia's threat report for 2019 and 2020.The number of malware on Android platforms is 15 to 47 times higher than on the iPhone.
It is reported that in accordance with the original intention of the European Union, want to open up users to install software freely, including bypassing the App Store, which caused Strong opposition from Apple.
In its response, Apple also noted that experts generally agree that the iOS platform is safer.One important reason is that Apple doesn't support sideloading apps.
Apple stressed that the app store audit mechanism in the current more important, on the one hand, users pay more attention to privacy and security, on the other hand, the app needs to call the data resources complex and illegal applications are very good at packaging, so that users free installation of APP will be greatly exposed to risk.
Frankly, there is no absolute good or bad, otherwise the iOS platform will not have a jailbreak said, which proves that there are still a considerable number of users want to have the right to self-determination of APP.
