There is no doubt that Apple’s iOS is one of the most recognized operating systems. But still few from us don’t like it due to its restrictiveness. For such people, a startup from the US named Corellium working on a version of Android that can run on the iPhone. Recently, the startup completed its first successful attempt of running Android on the iPhone. But, for now, it is only available for the iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, and iPod.
This project first comes in the mind of well-known developer David Wag. We also know him for his iDroid Project; it was the first attempt to run Android on the iPhone around a decade ago. This project helps you to run a different operating system on the iPhone hardware.
Users can download it from the Corellium website, but the users who are looking for proper Android experience on their iPhone should have to wait for some time. The available version only works on the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 plus. The currently available version doesn’t support Bluetooth, cellular modem, audio output, or camera. The available version also has read-only access to storage, and users are not allowed to download new apps from the Google play store.
But getting Android on the iPhone is highly impressive because it enhances the performance and user experience for iPhone users. Still, this release is likely to go accelerate current legal conflicts between Apple and Corellium.
The US startup offers Android, iOS, and Linux on ARM, which was sued over by Apple. Apple claimed that the tools of the startup facilitated jailbreaking and also violated the DMCA. Apple also blamed the company that the startup selling a same copy of iOS without any license from Apple. In response to it, Corellium told that Apple was demonizing jailbreaking.
The latest project from, Corellium is all about creating something advance from the sand, added by CEO of Corellium, Amanda Gorton. The sandcastle highlights the draconian nature as well as the nature of hiding anti-competitive behavior by Apple.
With the help of Corellium’s latest project users can use the hardware of Apple in the way they want to use because Apple restricts the iPhone users to work inside a sandbox. The project sandcastles deliver an opportunity to make something advance and wonderful from the limited boundaries of your imagination.
