    I've heard people saying that the reason they prefer Apple phones IOS because they are very secure as compared to Android. IOS does not allow app owner the access to user data on the phone and android does.

    Is that true?

    That's a very, very generalized view and it's also really conditional. With Android the user is more responsible for their own usage and it involves a wider range of less monitored but more open services; with Apple, it provides a well protected, feature rich environment but you either conform to how and what Apple allows or you're simply excluded -- so you just need to be honest with yourself about how you want to use your mobile device. You've got two different platforms that have fundamental differences, but it's your choice on what suits your needs the best.
    If all you're focusing on is security, Apple is probably better for you. If you have a more expansive approach to using a mobile device, look to Android. As far as all the verbage about Android being some kind of security disaster, keep in mind a lot of allegedly knowledgeable pundits also rely not on current experience but outdated legacy issues. If you want to do an Android <> Apple comparison, do it from a current, real-world approach so whatever decision on what to buy next is based on factual information, not just opinion.

    with android apps will need certain permissions in order to run properly. these permission are listed in the app page in the play store. by downloading the app you agree to these permissions.

    some apps you just have to be careful and know what you are downloading. check the permissions and see if it makes sense for the app. for instance if you are looking for a wallpaper app and the permission listed is access to your contacts or email......why would a wallpaper app need permission for that? stay away from those apps.

    please take what @svim as the best answer to your inquiry. i agree with everything that was said. i have never owned an apple product and it is mainly because they force you to "conform", as @svim said, to their way and that is it. with android there are many choices you can make.
