Updated the Sec, may the mods please set it up to the new layout (with the fancy visual feedback)? Thanks a lot in advance :)
Regarding iOS, AFAIK there is no real AV by now. Also, it uses the track my mobile feature and is backupped to cloud. There is a SIM-PIN and a device code used (device may be unlocked with my fingerprint). AFAIK, the data stored on the mobile is encrypted by default.
