    You can do that on iOS too - you just need to download the app, and after it finishes, go to settings\general\device management and trust the developer.

    There is however, a flip side to all this hoopla about installing untrusted, unverified apps. Yes, mah freedom, but also mah chances of trojans and malware.

    Android-powered connected devices are fifty times more likely to be infected with malware when compared to iOS.

    The summary seems to immediately contradict that conclusion with the following
    According to the whitepaper, Android devices were responsible for 47.15% of the observed malware infections, Windows/ PCs for 35.82%, IoT for 16.17% and iPhones for less than 1%
    If there's 50x as many Android devices than iOS ones, then an equal rate of infection leads to the witnessed ratio of infections.

    Lies, damned lies, and statistics...

    Depending on the patches on it, yes. Same as the iPhone, although its not as recent in memory.

    According to this Android has 74.6 % of the market share, with iOS having around 25 % and other around 0.4. So no, there are not 50x as many Android devices as there are iOS-devices. It's roughly three times as many, which means that Android devices have a higher rate of infection than iOS devices does.

    Its a combination of security through obscurity (criminals playing the odds) and Apple having higher walls around its garden.

    Plus, Apple markets itself on selling all-in-one solutions, so large portion of users stay in the ecosystem. Example: I have (had) an APK on my phone that would search through other binaries and disable in-app ad hooks. That thing was obviously able to insert whatever malicious code it wanted as well. I dont think an iOS user would even think of looking for something like that, but it was cool that I could.

    Apparently EA put real-life ads into UFC (and possibly other games too) after like 60(?) days so it wouldnt be caught in the reviews. Ads apparently "breaks/stops" game play mid-fight and makes you miss final hits or something.

    Savings on EA digital purchases with a 10% member discount – letting you save on full games, Season Passes, points packs, and DLC.


    EA Play Pro members get everything above plus:

    Should be possible. It means that MS now owns Obsidian, Bethesdah and Larian. I say lock them up in a room for a while and see what comes out.

    I bet $5 on Larian. CEO has fully functional medieval plate armor laying around.
