#4 "99% of all malware is on Android."
Here, the Apple users have a point. I cited a lot of valid data in my webcast, Mobile Data Security: Why the Industry Must Improve…Or Else and even more in my Android security deep dive.
But, and this is a big but... most Android users who don't root their phones, don't download software outside of the Google Play store, and basically don't practice unsafe app usage are generally okay. Likewise, those iOS users who do root their phones are at risk.
Should Apple users feel better about themselves because of this? Yeah, I'll give this to the Apple fans. Android is almost inevitably going to be more of a security challenge than Apple's more locked-down environment.
