Android is most used smartphone operating system today but there is no denying that iOS is also competitive considering it is available on just few devices. What if we told you now you can Dual Boot iOS8 on any Android device running on Android 4.0+.
Impossible right but first take a look at this video to know its possible and you can then follow the instructions outlined in the video.
How to Boot Your Android into iOS 8
Just in case you’re wondering, this process does not require root access and none of your existing data will be touched. Just be sure that your device meets the following requirements to dual-boot iOS 8 on Android.
- Android 4.0 or higher (yes, even Lollipop)
- 1 GB of free storage space
With the requirements met and your device ready, follow the short list of steps below to get iOS 8 up and running.
- Browse to AndroidHacks.com from your Android phone.
- Tap the giant “Dual-Boot iOS” button at the bottom.
- Wait for the system to install.
- Use your new iOS 8 system on Android!
Note that this process is completely reversible. Since it’s a dual-boot system, you can easily revert back in your power options. Also, if your Android device doesn’t have a physical home button, you can return to the home page in iOS by tapping on the status bar.
As expected, some apps from the iOS App Store you install may force-close, but most system apps should work well enough to showcase the operating system to friends. Let us know what apps worked for you in the comments below.
