Apple's head of software, Craig Federighi, said in court on Wednesday that Apple is not pleased with the amount of harmful software, or malware, on its operating system for Mac computers, MacOS.
"Today, we have a level of malware on the Mac that we don't find acceptable and that is much worse than iOS," Federighi testified in the Epic Games v. Apple trial.
Epic Games argues that Apple can easily apply Mac software installation policies and security mechanisms to iPhones, while Apple says its App Store review process and rules keep users secure.
On Wednesday, Federighi said that the user base of the Mac is about one-tenth the user base of the iPhone.
For example, software developers still use Macs because they can install development tools, such as Xcode, and access the guts of the computer — including installing unauthorized software.
