4 types of apps that you should think twice before downloading to your iPhone
Millions of apps are available on the App Store for iPhones and iPads. All applications that access the App Store are first checked by Appl. It tries to find various forms of threats or viruses in the applications and in such cases the infected applications do not reach the App Store at all. Unfortunately, virtually all potentially harmful applications fail to capture during the approval process, so you can find them directly in the App Store. Let's take a look at 4 types of applications that you shouldn't download at all, or be cautious about downloading.

If you are an iOS or iPadOS user, or an iPhone or iPad, you simply don't need antivirus. Apple is developing these operating systems so that no malicious code can get into them. Of course, the master carpenter sometimes shuts down, and from time to time a security vulnerability occurs, causing malicious code to get into the iPhone. However, if you think that in these cases an antivirus might help you, you are wrong. Most of the antivirus on iOS does not work at all, or just deceives its user. At the same time, such applications often offer you a variety of subscriptions or other purchases that have the sole task of withdrawing money. So the best antivirus in this case is your common sense.
Application with "new" superfunctions
No, the app is unlikely to provide your iPhone with an X-ray, a lie detector, or a shake charge function. Any application that offers similar features is simply fraudulent. While some of these apps are made for fun only, some of you may want to pluck money for in-app purchases. To put it simply – if the iPhone or iPad does not have that feature in its description, it simply won't get it by simply downloading it. Especially young children and younger generations can find these applications. A big phenomenon has recently been an app that has been able to measure heartbeat by placing your thumb on the phone's camera. Even this app didn't work and in the end was a big threat to your data.
Apps that connect to social networks
If you use social networks and you would like to become a bit more influential, for example using multiple followers, there are two ways to do this. Either you follow a fair path and try to engage your followers, or simply click through them with different apps. However, in these cases, you should be careful, as some applications that you allow to access your social networks may receive a variety of sensitive information and data. Usually, such applications can post to your Facebook wall or share photos on Instagram.
Various accelerators and space release applications

In the Android operating system, various acceleration applications are quite common and some manufacturers even integrate them directly into their systems. However, these applications are not necessary at all on iOS or iPadOS, and are often more likely to hurt and slow down the system. In most cases, these applications are more fraudulent and do nothing other than what you would do. For example, they can only close applications or deactivate various services to increase battery life, which you can easily do in the end. It should also be noted that both iPhone and iPad can perfectly manage their system resources and therefore no third-party applications are needed. The same applies to space-free applications. You must allow these applications access to all kinds of data before use, which is not appropriate. So consider first installing such applications.
