That is not my understanding wrt androids. Iphones are encrypted by default. Do you have a link showing androids are encrypted? I'd be interested to read it if you do.
iPhone and iPad offer hardware-based encryption.
Hardware encryption uses 256-bit AES to protect all data on the device
Encryption is always enabled, and cannot be disabled by users.
Additionally, data backed up in iTunes to a userís computer can be encrypted.
This can be enabled by the user, or enforced by using device restriction settings in Configuration Profiles.
iOS supports S/MIME in mail, enabling iPhone and iPad to view and send encrypted email messages. Restrictions can also be used to prevent mail messages from being moved between accounts or messages received in one account being forwarded
