    Hello Charles,

    Well, both versions (mac OS App Store - Avira .dmg version) are different due to limitations from the App Store guideline. So with the Avira version from our website you receive faster program-updates (not virus definitions) as we're able to deliver them without the stop-over at Apple.

    At iOS, it is not possible to scan for viruses as all apps are limited to run in their own sandbox.

    Best,
