    This been happening since I had my iPhone 6 now on the 7 too. Sometimes I visit a site and redirects me to a site that has a malware ads. Do I have a virus ? Try restoring it and nothing, there most be a setting I can change

    Edit: redirects to AppStore is not common cuz o iOS 10 it blocks that. I guess the only option is Adblock

    Assuming it's happening on a particular site (or group of sites) it sounds like either the site isn't all that good, or the ad network its using is allowing some bad ads to be served up on it. Aside from not visiting the sites in question, using a content blocker should be helpful (and you might want to clear Safari data as well).

    There are really no known (stock) iOS viruses or malware out there that could be obtained from web sites, so, no, not really.

    Due to the sandboxed environment of iOS, a virus wouldn't have its intended effect so people don't waste time writing them. Phishing is the major focus these days as it has a greater potential for reward.
