iOS is safer than Android...Because

We have learned that the iPhone and iPad are "more secure" than Android devices. I put "more secure" in quotes here, because the security is not due to superior hardware, but instead
accountability. As it turns out there is very little, if any, malicious code written for the iPhone. The geek news website Slashdot is reporting on a study that looked at both platforms and found that the main reason for the lack of malware on Apple devices is due to the stricter controls placed on developers and their apps by Apple. These controls create accountability that the Android developers don't have to match. The researchers found that of all of the malware they found, 100% was written for Android devices.
