iphone has never come close to having the majority of marketshare, let
alone nearly 80% of it.  Let's see, write something to attack those
Apple devices, because they have ~10% of the desktops and ~20% of the
mobiles.... you know what, why bother.  I'd probably have to target
some rich ass in the US to find someone to use it on.....  Not to say
they haven't raised the bar, and are not the lowest hanging fruit.  I
still assert if iphone had 80% marketshare, the amount of malware
written for it would be much greater as well, and all the "security"
apple has baked in wouldn't stop the commercial authors for more than
a few days at a time.

Or in other words, apple cannot lose what it has never possessed!
(additional marketshare to lose)
