I have a ipad air 2,should I get anti virus for it? —– tom Comments: One Response to “Anti Virus for iPad Air 2?” Gary Rosenzweig 4 years ago No. Not only shouldn’t you get it, but you can’t get it even if you wanted to. iOS is not an open operating system like OS X or Windows. You can’t run software that changes the way the OS works. So there is no way to get “anti-virus software” for iOS. And you don’t need it. There are no real threats. All software installed on iOS must come through the App Store, which means you can’t accidentally load malware onto your iPad like you can on a PC. I can go into more detail, but there are the basics. No need to get anti-virus software for iPads, and none exists anyway.
