iOS 13 vs. Android 10: Which is more secure?



iOS 13’s walled garden, or Android 10’s open-source sandbox? 

For years, iOS has maintained an iron grip on its reputation as the most secure mobile operating system, but Android 10’s new granular controls over app permissions and increased efforts toward security updates are a noticeable improvement. 

Both Android 10 and iOS 13 (released Thursday) have new security features that up the ante by giving you more control over how often apps can access your location, ways to stop apps from scanning nearby Bluetooth and Wi-Fi networks to guess your location, and a new sign-in method for third-party apps.
