Do I need an antivirus for my iPhone?
Despite what many believe, iPhones are also susceptible to viruses, although it would be unfair to say their situation is comparable to PCs, or even Android devices. It is true that iPhones have much stronger built-in protection than other connected devices, which renders the need for traditional antivirus software a little moot. But that said, there are still threats and viruses that manage to sneak through the robust internal security of your iPhone. Which is why it’s helpful to have specialized security software that complements your phone’s security, rather than something that would try to replace it. That way, you have complete protection from any and all threats.
