It seems that a new breach in iOS allows malicious apps to "sniff" and record touch input, as well as key press events, enabling wrongdoers to take advantage of a user's valuable information.

Then stop listening to them, only the idiotic ones even claim that any more. If you aren't a complete idiot you'll know how to manage your exposure on any platform.

I like to listen to them and then mention these articles. You really think with 1 million apps on the store, none are malicious?

There would seem to be a number of undisclosed zero-day hacks, given the services advertised by white-hat hackers for government agencies.
