    My brother suggested an app for me to use that helps free up memory, called Battery, because my iPad at times runs sluggish. iPad Air 2 LTE.

    Anyway, I downloaded the app, ran its memory boost feature, and was surprised that while it quickly scrolls the list of apps it's cleaning up memory from, at the bottom was a Chinese titled app with no icon graphic. See screenshot.

    I found that Angry Birds 2 was on the list of Xcode Ghost hacked apps, deleted it, backed up my iPad, wiped it, restored, this Chinese thing is still here. What is it? Is this Xcode Ghost hack? What's my fix? Lose all my in-app data and wipe the whole thing?

    Thanks in advance...

    Angry Birds 2 is only infected if you downloaded the Chinese version. Also you don't need any of those "free up memory" apps because that's not how iOS works.

    Thanks for the note. I only download from the US store. So what's the Chinese thing running on my iPad, then? (Screenshot)
