You're right, at least with the NSA you know they are loggin you input. No but seriously, what makes you say that? Of course you can send SMS without gapps on Android.
You must be joking, right? Apple and security? That's like calling a tank peaceful. Not only does Apple collect a lot of data about their customers (more than their competitors do), they also had several icloud leaks and even the US government was able to crack that terrorist's iphone without Apple's help. Additionally, Mac OS is also not secure. There are still a lot of Apple users out there who think there is no malware on Mac OS (but there is) and that's what makes them vulnerable. Nothing about Mac OS is more secure than any other OS. Also, where are you getting that about Mac OS being the go-to-OS for the corp world? I know Apple devices are popular among some - but not all - artists (graphic, video, music). But I've never seen or heard of corporations using stricly Mac OS in their offices. And honestly, I wouldn't know a reason why they should.
Gapps are only part of android. SMS is routed through googles messaging service. We have a googleless set up in the threads and you can see the issues that come from them removing all of googles stuff. Things like GPS, sms and other things have issues.
As to why I said that. Well You were mostly right. I know they are spying on me ( I even made sure of it lol) I just trust the Gov of the country I live in more then one I dont. ITs just a matter of where one lives.
As for the other part. I used to deal with corp orders for a few Carriers and the device of choice for large orders was always IOS. Now we are seeing more for Samsung devices as well due to their completely locked down nature. I never said Mac OS was the choice just the Iphone. While not completely secure it is far more secure then most android devices at this point. If you look around even the most security minded developers here carry an iphone for their everyday device and save their androids for their hobby. When compared to the rest IOS is more secure when compared to the rest. Yes the FBI cracked the iphone but that was expected when every security agency came forward and offered to help crack it for them. But it also cost them millions of $ to do it.
