This Company Made a Version of Android That Runs on the iPhone


For many, Apple's iOS ecosystem is appealing in its simplicity. For others, it is annoying in its restrictiveness. For those that like the elegance of Apple hardware but want a little more freedom in how the operating system works—or for those that want to tinker with Android on the iPhone just because—a new project may be just the ticket.

The folks at cybersecurity startup Corellium this week unveiled Project Sandcastle, the first successful attempt to get Android running on the iPhone. For now, it works only on the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus and iPod Touch. The project is the brainchild of co-founder and developer David Wang, who you may remember from the iDroid project, the first ever attempt to port Android to the iPhone roughly a decade ago.
