    The iOS operating system on devices uses a "sandbox" design in which each app runs in a sandbox, meaning it cannot access data belonging to other apps unless, in some situations, it has your permission to do so.  Spyware usually peeks at data files "owned" by the operating system or other apps and does something with the data.  This does not happen on Apple devices.
