Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.
Android viruses are unlikely to affect iOS devices; when two devices operate using different software, they often have different holes in their security. Viruses are normally programmed to work in a specific fashion, for a specific operating system.

That said, every virus is different, and a particularly ravenous hacker could, in theory, design a virus to operate differently depending on which device it infects. This would, in turn, menace the owner regardless of their choice in phone.

    The chances are very very few since apple does not make apis available to developers, the ios has fewer vulnerabilities. As you asked, no and not possible an android virus can infect ios mobile. iOs mobile is most secured than an android mobile.
