I Have been researching on this specific topic from the last few weeks and found this article some helpful! Can iPhone get a virus
But I still have some confusion that how can an iPhone get a virus because they have one of the most secure systems in the world! Or there are no viruses created for iPhones? What's the reason behind it?

I don't think so.....

I have yet to hear anyone provide any credible evidence of any virus showing up on an iPhone. The bottom line is to be aware of any strange/unusual requests to download an unknown application or accepting permissions. There are applications that can be downloaded if you are concerned, but I don't think they are necessary.

What is a virus?

Now you'll have to define that today since folk LUMP anything into what a virus actually was. If you installed it, it's not a virus for example.

That said there are JAILBREAKs that allow folk to install Trojanized apps but so far, no virus as well, do you know the difference from a virus to a Trojan? I find some folk blow up here since they don't want to distinguish one from the other.
