Not just the Apple ecosystem, pretty much every ecosystem, especially Android and Windows.

Not sure why you're being downvoted, you're right. HN commenters just love to take every opportunity to hate on Apple.

Nobody said Apple's security is perfect. People's views are simply biased because when Apple's much tighter security is breached, of course it will make headlines everywhere. Windows and Android have far more malware, but you won't see headlines about it every single day.

Either way, unless you're a journalist, politician or some other high-value target, you're pretty unlikely to be targeted by exploits like the NSO one. But if you don't care about jailbreaking, you can still update your device to give yourself peace of mind.

Zero days are more expensive for Android than for iOS. That says something when Android is much more likely to be used by a target. Android security is broken but it is generally better than what Apple does.
