I was wondering about the security on these iPhones. I don't have one but pops who is 86 and totally computer illiterate does (so he can talk to his hot 59 year old girlfriend lol). I was just reading about some guy who developed an iPhone app that was malicious. I was wondering how these phones handle security updates if they even have them. Is it automatic or what?

I guess they're secure to some extent. As long as the user sticks to the official app store and all that I guess he/she will be safe. If I'm not mistaken there are antiviruses available for the iphone and some android devices, heh so much for "Macs do not get viruses"

Ya that's the thing, the guy in the article submitted it to the app store and the app store screening software didn't recognize it as malware, and Ok'd it as clean..
