    It's been doing this ever since I been browsing random websites online using Safari on iPhone. It wasn't like this before. What could have been causing this? Virus or malware affected my internet? What should I do? The page or an app pics don't load properly for example. Not sure if it's malware related.

    There are no viruses or malware on iPhones, unless it's a jailbroken device. Clear Cookies and Data from your iPhone.

    Reboot.

    On an iPhone? No, no malware was installed, unless there's a (very doubtful) zero-day exploit floating around.

    Since I am still new and OP's question probably answered--explain why the iPhone is thought to be exempt from malware, viruses.

    I want to look at porn--NO, just kidding and just curious on security. No Warez here.

    iOS is not immune to malware, but no malware exists in the wild that affect unjailbroken iOS devices. You can't infect your iPhone or iPad simply by visiting a website.

    Thanks GGJ

    My son has been telling that for years. Never understood the why.
