iOS Malware

My latest Practical Mac column at the Seattle Times comes from a reader question about whether his iPhone and iPad are more susceptible to malware than in the past.

The short answer: you don’t need to worry about malware on iOS.

The slightly longer answer: iOS isn’t impervious to flaws, but you still don’t need to worry. The bigger threat is phishing and social scams.

I also spotlight a clever utility, High Sierra Media Key Enabler, and pass along a tip about the Preview application that I never knew was possible.

Read it here: iPhones and iPads can be attacked by malware, but risk is still low.
