Another “Google competes with Apple on security” proof point: an Apple ad.

Google showed us a “Switch to iPhone” ad from 2018 that’s unfortunately no longer on YouTube. I’ll let AppleInsider’s description suffice:

 A woman takes one of the icons off the shelf on the “Your Store” side and it blows blue powder in her face. She then walks over to the “App Store” section as the “Your Store” shelf collapses and the word “safer” appears.

“It’s an ad from Apple showing, basically saying that when you grab an app from the shelf, you never know what you’re going to get from the Android side,” says Lockheimer.
