Drashad, 09 Oct 2014for your info, and you can google this, developers earn way more money on IOS than on android,... more"you can't write a virus or malware for mac or ios"
Yes, you can. There are many virii for OSX and iOS. But since their user base is not large enough there aren't enough problems for people to consider it an actual threat and they don't offer attraction to hackers because they don't profit from such a small audience.
"you can't write a virus or malware for mac or ios because apple won't allow you"
Apple really has no say in it. From your comment I can see you have no knowledge of whatever is going on inside of a computer or smartphone or apparently any piece of technology at all.
A virus is a program. That's all it is. The difference between a virus or any other piece of software is that a virus has code (code is what is used to write and create a program) written specifically to steal information, slow down your machine, delete files, whatever the programmer fancies. So, since people can write programs for Apple's operative systems, they can write virii for them too. To know why people don't do it, see above.
"[mac or ios] is not open source like android and windows"
I was just reading your comment and laughing, but then I read this part and I made an account just to reply to you and tell you how ridiculous of a comment yours is.
Windows is not open-source. I have a feeling you don't even know what this means. An open-source program is a program whose source code (the code that makes up the program) you can read or modify. Open-source programs include goodies like 7-Zip, VLC or Chromium.
I really can't see where you got this idea that Windows is open-source. Windows is developed by Microsoft and its source code is owned by them, making it what is called closed-source. If it was open-source anyone could write an operative system based off of it, like it is done with Linux, and Microsoft would lose most of its profits. In that sense, Windows and OSX are exactly alike, no difference whatsoever. Except that Windows dominates the global market, and it's even more noticeable on enterprise, which is much more attractive to hackers (for obvious reasons).
You are what is called tech illiterate, and those people are what comprise most of Apple's userbase, simply because those who know better usually go for other choices, such as Windows Phone or Android. The others who, despite understanding the machines and having the knowhow, still choose the iPhone usually have a reason to do so, such as developers (they make a lot more money on iOS per capita than on Android, that's true, it's been proven that iOS users are much more prone to spending much more money than Android's, which is something I have no difficulty imagining, given how much they have to shell out for the phone itself) or people who need a very specific app which, for some reason, is still not available for other OSes. Apart from those reasons, you can bet most people buy iPhones or MacBooks because of the image that they carry. Having a bitten apple on the back of your phone or computer is a fashion statement and (used to be) an indicator of your social and financial status, which has been proven time and again by tech experts and market analysts.
Believe this site's review when they say it: the new iPhone and the new version of iOS bring ab-so-lu-te-ly nothing new to the table. Big screens are not new, messages and phone calls on my computer are not new, NFC is not new, 720p and 1080p screens are actually getting old... Absolutely nothing.
If you can handle this size of get yourself the ultimate a Note series smartfone.
Is it iPhone is amazing or the user are amazing...Thinnk deeply Interms of customer services and satifaction people go for it. However interms of their innovation it is just a phone which will not be better than any other android phone. Interms of cost you can go for it if you want to they are the best cost in the market in stead of 1 iphone 6+ you can buy 10 smart phone

Not because the audience is not big, it's huge. It's just they can't because the operating system is too secure, and even if they do successfully make a virus for it, apple will just come up with an update to wipe it out, rendering it ineffective.

Just don't think like apple brought ios from some alien world. Dude listen every operating systems crashes that include IOS , android , WP etc.. on the other hand why window operating system crashes more than mac ? That's because of most of the viruses and Malwares are written for or targeted for ever popular windows operating system. These viruses or malwares target a large people compared to less mac users.. just think dude... now android is the most popular mobile operating system in the world..of course there will be more threats out there for android. . More viruses. ..more malwares. . Always targets larger audience. ...
