    How do you know you have Spyware on your iOS Device? Is it jailbroken?

    We can’t give salient or accurate advice if you don’t know whether it’s indeed jail broken first and foremost.

    What device do you have?

    Which version of iOS are you on?

    What issues are you having that make you suspect malware (highly unlikely if not jail broken, FYI).

    Ignoring all the questions...if you really have spyware I think you'd have to restore as new and not from a backup.

    Also, apps are sandboxed in iOS, so any “spyware remove” type apps on the App Store are garbage and pointless.
