You Can Now Install Android 10 On Your iPhone 7



You Can Now Install Android 10 On Your iPhone 7

A group of developers called Correlium has developed a beta version of a project they have been working on for some time. It is the ability to install Android on an iPhone.

They have overcome the challenge, thanks to an exploit called checkra1n that allows jailbreak on some older iPhone models. It is already possible to see Android running on an iPhone 7, for example, but many wonder what this can do.

You can install it, and it works, but how?

Those responsible for this development have created the so-called Project Sandcastle. This way, any user can install Android on an iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus. Other mobiles are partially supported, but only these two cited allow access to that partial and functional Android support on Apple mobiles.

This table will enable you to check which this project supports the hardware components of the phone. Unfortunately, many devices are not yet compatible. And they may never be compatible.

That detracts a lot of interest in an experiment that developers make even more warnings. They do not guarantee anything about the performance increase with this project, nor about the battery’s health improvement.

The reasons for installing Android on the iPhone are, therefore, probably reduced people’s curiosity. In fact, it is something that, until recently, seemed impossible.

Hackintosh enter the scene

The analogy with the world of PCs is clear. For years, it has been possible to install macOS on desktop PCs (and on some laptops) as long as they meet specific hardware requirements.

If we are careful in the choice of components, creating one of those famous Hackintosh is relatively simple.

That has made many users “escape” from the catalog offered by Mac, especially in their most powerful desktops, which are usually extraordinarily expensive for the raw performance they offer. Resources such as the famous TonyMacx86 website helps to achieve it.

Instead, these users make much higher configurations in power with significant savings. However, that implies that they have to be attentive to macOS updates that can disrupt some sections of hardware and software support.

Final Thoughts

If macOS can be installed on a conventional Windows PC, why can’t iOS be installed on a traditional Android smartphone? There are several reasons, but among them is the hardware of the iPhone, which is very special in many ways.

Apple processors, for example, make use of the ARM architecture. Still, they have relevant differences concerning the Snapdragon, Kirin, Exynos, or MediaTek that we see in most Android phones.

Therefore, it would be necessary to do reverse engineering in iOS. So the device can adapt it to the hardware of the Android smartphone in which we would like to run Android.

The legal ones would also join the legal difficulties: Apple would probably sue those responsible for these types of projects. However, that might not be a significant obstacle considering that the situation here is again analogous to the Hackintosh.

The challenge of being able to install iOS on Android on a technical level poses many more technical difficulties, mainly due to those hardware differences that do not exist in the world of PCs and laptops.
