I think you mean A-twit. There’s good reason for iOS users not caring much.
There is very little malware risk in iOS. Android is the malware risk, big time. So much so that security companies like Sophos etc… have recently slammed Android for its extremely weak security. It’s a joke.
You may not like Apple’s closed eco system but its the reason the device is extremely secure. The reason most Fortune 500 companies are adopting iOS products is because of the security that comes with it. Many of these companies won’t even allow employees to connect an Android device to their corporate LAN.
