Yes that's a fact. Anyway, which OS are you comparing against? GrapheneOS/hardened AOSP or something else?
Any OS, as I said it's 'relatively secure'. I wouldn't go comparing a large commercial OS to a specifically bespoke and esoteric OS directly. They are different use cases, and we all know it's clear which one is more secure and which one offers more ease of use combined with functionality.

Interesting. I got the latest beta/release candidate. For some reason it tripped Cylance warning me that there was a sideloaded app that did MITM attack. So I deleted the Beta Software profile certificate, rebooted and the notification disappeared. I was always suspicious that Apple might be using that Beta certificate to funnel things out of your phone without going through your regular network channels like a VPN...
