Investigators discovered that a company called the NSO Group, an Israeli outfit that sells software that invisibly tracks a target’s mobile phone, was responsible for the intrusions. The NSO Group’s software can read text messages and emails and track calls and contacts. It can even record sounds, collect passwords and trace the whereabouts of the phone user
We advise all of our customers to always download the latest version of iOS to protect themselves against potential security exploits,” said Fred Sainz, a company spokesman.
In many cases, the NSO Group had designed its tools to impersonate those of the Red Cross, Facebook, Federal Express, CNN, Al Jazeera, Google and even the Pokemon Company to gain the trust of its targets, according to the researchers.

People on ATS are incredibly misinformed when it comes to tech. I have the professional background to know the truth.
If you are scared of digital intrusion, apple is your safest bet.
If you don't care, go android, the kernel is available for all to compromise - the downfall of freeware.
If you're really serious about security go blackberry - although they won't be around much longer.
