- Android can power the iPhone.
- It is done by Project Sandcastle.
- Apple sued the developers.
Android and IOS are the two software that powers the entire mobiles around the globe, and both have their own specialties as well as the unique elements. Having said that, both the Android as well as iOS have their own fan base and we can argue different possibilities of both the mobile operating system.
But would you ever imagine to experience the world’s most favourite and active mobile operating system Android to be run on the iPhone? Personally speaking, I wished to have the same just to experience the combination of Android and iPhone.
Sadly, the same never happened but that has been implemented by a group of people as they ran Android on the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus and both the devices run smoothly with the power of Android and this made possible with the Project Sandcastle.
Here’s Android on iPhone
Project Sandcastle installed Android on the Apple device with the help of Corellium’s iPhone virtualization platform and the same brings back to Apple suing Corellium; it helps developer tests and finds security vulnerabilities without bricking an actual device. It is worth mentioning that the developers have done the same 10 years ago with the iPhone but many features were not working, but this time it is an extended version of the same and works features that were not able in the previous attempt.
This was done by a group of cybersecurity startup Corellium, and the tech giant Apple has filed a complaint against them for the implementation which the startup did in the Apple devices. You can check out the transformation process in the video attached below.
