Apple more secure....HA thats a laugh. Mini rant incoming.
Apple has plenty of malware...iOS and MacOS.
In my line of work, had to remove and deal with virus,malware infected macbooks every day for years.
And, i can't tell you how many customers and co-workers who have been wowed, and have lost bets, on how fast and easy i can bypass Apple's lock screen, and FaceID nonsense and gain access to their phone.
I also lost track on how my times Apple been in tech news for having root access to their OSs with no password, or dumb simple, little to no tech experience needed tricks or exploits.
Sure, Android has it faults,and has a big fragmentation issue with all the OEM versions/modds, and i don't expect any Apple Fanboys to accept anything i say, but i can only laugh at the false sense of security that "using Apple products" gives people.
I have used Android tech since ver 1.0 of the OS....never, ever, had any malware or security issues. Even my non-techy family members, and grandparents, been using Android for many years, even the ones who install every app under the sun, never had any issues.
The only real advantage, depending on how you look at it, Apple is a unified, non segmented/fragmented platform. Only 2 core OS to deal with, across all their devices. Android, the only closest thing to compare, is Google made and controlled Android OS, that is on Pixel phones. All the others, have been butchered by OEMs. Though, one thing to note, a security issue or exploit on Apple products, affects them all, where on Android, is is very often isolated to certain versions, and/or OEM rom versions devices, in that case, Android fragmentation is an advantage.
To each his own of course. For me, personally, Apple products can not do the things I want/need them to do, how I want to do them. I refuse to use itunes and convert all my FLAC music, and deal with Apple's proprietary everything nonsense...give me Open Source things!
I also find their UI and OS, and processes of using it, silly and often far more impractical than other platforms. And, when I do personally know a few diehard, life long Apple only people, who got so fed up with iOS and other Apple things the last couple years, they moved cold turkey to Android and Windows or Linux....and don't regret it at all...that tells you something on the state of things.
