Android successfully ran on the iOS simulator: some apps ran perfectly

The emergence of simulators has broken the barriers between operating systems. A few days ago, the developer ciciplusplus successfully ported touchHLE to the Android platform, so as to be able to run some iOS system apps. Earlier this year, touchHLE, an iOS emulator created by enthusiast Hikari no Yume, already runs on Macs and Windows PCs. It should be noted that touchHLE simulates a very old iOS operating system. It was able to do this because the security mechanism was not perfect at that time, and there were abundant loopholes that could be used. Most of the apps that passed the test were games, such as “Super Monkey Ball” and “Crash Bandicoot Racing 3D”. Due to Apple’s restrictions, the emulator only supports 64-bit Android chips and is still being further optimized. The project has been hosted on GitHub.

iOS simulator

Thus, in a normal setting, Android can never run on an iOS simulator. However, tech experts are working on many tweaks that allow these apps to run. The iOS simulator is a strong tool for developers who are looking to create iOS apps without the need for an actual iOS device. It provides a virtual zone that allows developers to test and debug their apps before deploying them to real iOS devices. In this report, we discuss the features, benefits, and limits of the iOS simulator. Also, how it can be used to create better iOS apps.

Features of the iOS Simulator

The iOS simulator offers a virtual zone that emulates an iOS device, complete with a simulated iOS system. This virtual zone allows developers to test and debug their apps in a way that closely mimics the ways of an actual iOS device.

One of the key features of the iOS simulator is its ability to simulate multiple iOS devices.
