Why don't iPads need firewalls or antivirus?
Apple iPads don't have any firewall or anti virus apps
I wonder why they are more secure than a PC.?

The First Apple IPad "Virus"

The first Apple iPad virus was reported in April 2010. It was reported to erase files and damage data. The virus was not designed to attack the iPad, but the iPhone. The iPad and iPhone use the same operating system; this allows developers to create applications for both devices but also potentially allows criminals to develop malware that can affect both systems.

If you want to learn about the security of computer operating systems, GLP is probably not your best first choice.

If I'm not mistaken, the iOS only runs signed code. Most of the virus' and malware out there are written by young people trying to see what they can do... You would have to have an app in the Itunes store to get it to load on the apple product.

No firewall allows access to your home network though too right?

used to be written by young people..... highly organised fraudsters are doing it now!!

the reason Mac's dont have antivirus protection was because it was not a viable target,(not enough users of the tech).

now that everyone and their granny has some sort of apple device Hackers are specifically going to target Apple products coz there are millions and millions of them and the security is shit!!

2013 +interesting year for Apple!!
