iPhone 6s hacked
It's normal to see open and closed ports - never forget that your iphone is a tcp client. Clients open ports to servers all the time, you'll see the same thing on a Windows or Linux host (run netstat -a)

If you are seeing this sort of information on an iphone, it sounds like you might possibly be running on a jailbroken device? If so also keep in mind that the jailbreak solutions are themselves potentially malware. Even in the best case, with a "good" jailbreak, many of the protections that Apple puts in place are set aside once you jailbreak. If you are running a jailbroken iPhone, I really would suggest you go back to a more "appley" security posture.
