The head of the American company Apple Tim Cook said that those who do not care about security can switch to Android smartphones. His words are reported by the MacRumors edition.
The CEO of the corporation said this during the DealBook conference held by The New York Times. “If you are in favor of unsafe downloading of applications, you can purchase an Android smartphone,” Cook said, answering the question why iPhone users cannot download unconfirmed programs and services.
In his speech, Cook compared Android smartphones to unsafe machines. “It’s as if I, as a car manufacturer, told the buyer not to put airbags and seat belts in the car,” said Tim Cook. According to him, downloading third-party programs, which is possible on the Android platform, is too dangerous for users.
Reporters noted that earlier Apple vice president Craig Federighi called the download of unconfirmed apps “the best friend of cybercriminals.” According to the American corporation, Android smartphones are attacked 15-47 times more often than iPhones.
Earlier, the head of Apple disclosed his attitude to cryptocurrency. Tim Cook stated that he has similar assets and considers it prudent to own cryptocurrency as part of a diversified portfolio.
