Apple's iPhone has a popup which often appears when using the device, and especially when there is an update or a connection required.
According to an iOS developer, it's easy to make this pop-up dialogue box appear and to fool a user into entering their password, potentially giving it away to hackers.

A while back I noticed a flurry of the same thing happening on the iPad. I systematically ignored it until the day it locked me out, at which point I suppose they really did need something :)
