The fact is more It professionals use windows and Unix. More people in the creative arts, advertising and media industries use macs.

It's all a conspiracy! A Cover-up!!

The fact is, iOS has had very small amounts of malware compared to Android. iOS is more secure and preferred by IT professionals. iOS is more slick. The iPhone has a faster touchscreen response than ANY Android phone. The iPhone 5S has a useful fingerprint sensor (which Samsung are already planning on emulating), 64 bit architecture, an 8mp camera that is best in its class. Amazing graphics.

And who says that the iPhone 5S is the same?

and their itunes store has also had apps with Malware

Apple is just better at covering it up and it's blind fanboys happily defend Apple regardless of the facts.
