None of the above articles had to do with "jailbreaking" and this was just a quick look at search page listings. There were others.

My assertion was that more people were likely to have their device bricked than any malware (I should clarify that to be any non-zero day malware); not whether you personally have been bricked. I've provided three credible references to buttress my point and you've offered none.

Don't need one. I am not dissatisfied, and have made claims that need to verified. The error 53 is only seen if the screen of a Touch-Id device is replaced by an unauthorized repair facility. That's on the user.

And yet, Apple apologized for /THEIR/ screw-up and even offered to pay for said repairs to any and all who had experienced the same problem. I think I'll take Apple's admission over your belief :-)

If you sell 50 million of ANYTHING in a year, and 49 million of them are used by people who don't know much about their devices, you WILL have some problems with updating. I don't care what product it is. Didn't I read something about the latest Android update bricking some phones??

REF: https://www.statista.com/statistics/461900/android-vs-ios-market-share-in-smartphone-sales-germany/ One, Android has consistently outsold iOS smartphones by a huge amount and two, I never claimed that Android devices were without bricking issues. Rather, it was that Apple iOS updates have a history of "bricking" some portion of the users devices, which I've provided ample credible evidence of.

Whether their per person "bricking" portion is larger than Android's is a different issue. Since you seem to want to take the lead in this avenue of inquiry, I'll anxiously await your credible links on it so that I may become more informed.

Not wanting to wait for your canned response of not needing to provide credible links, I decided to look for myself. Make sure you're sitting down before you click on those links.

THe update process is so vastly different between the two types of OS that comparing them in any realistic, or meaningful, way is pretty much impossible. Apple offers updates on the order of three or four times a year, with minor updates (bug fixes) in between. In the Android world, if a user gets ANY update during the use life of their device, they consider themselves lucky. Hard to compare failure rates between and OS updated several times a year with one only updated for premium phones, and then only once, or twice during the device use life. The regular updates are the main reason I chose to go with the Apple ecosystem in the first place for my second smartphone. My first smartphone (Windows) NEVER had an update. My first Android tablet never had an update, and my current one had two in the first month, none in the two years since. My iPhone 7, bought in December 2016, has been updated from iOS 10 to 10.3.2 over only 6 months. I call that a good thing. You may see it as a negative, if you please.
