Security Is Built from the Ground Up
Apple uses the Mac subkernel as the basis for most of its operating systems — including macOS, iOS, iPadOS, tvOS and watchOS. Even if you don’t know what that is, it’s significant because security has to be built-in from the ground up.
That’s in stark contrast to other operating systems with no built-in security. As a result, those operating systems need to rely on additional utilities to provide it. That isn’t even to mention Apple’s strong security culture and its existing reputation, which pushes it to keep updating and refining its security processes.
