Android certainly remains the bigger target, both in terms of numbers of users and Android's more open and adaptable platform continues to make it more vulnerable to cyberattacks. Apple's iOS operating system has long been considered the more secure operating system.

Much of a Muchness as both rely on Open Source Platforms.

IOS is based on BSD which is a Open Source Offering that originally was called Berkley Software Development hence the BSD which is now available in various forms and Android is a development of Linux.

Both OS's have many people looking a t them and plugging any holes that they find and both rely on the Many Eyes make it Secure Belief.

So overall it not much of a issue between them though I should add that it was IOS which was broken first the last time I attended a Security Meeting but it was only a few moments faster than Droid took.
