Android on an iPhone – It’s Happening (Sort of)

It’s finally happened, although it took some creative hackery. Someone has finally gotten Android on an iPhone. If you have been thinking about Google’s Project Fi, but can’t bear to give up your iPhone, this new iPhone case may be for you!

A developer by the name of Nick Lee, from Tendigi design studios has gotten Android 6 “running” on an iPhone. I use running in quotes, since it’s actually running on custom hardware built inside the 3D-printed case. This means that Android isn’t actually running on the iPhone, but it’s really running on the hardware in the case and essentially “streaming” the output to the iPhone.

You can watch it in action here:

And if you’re curious, read all about Nick’s process on Tendigi’s blog page.

Also, in case it wasn’t clear, I doubt this would be a way to get Fi on the iPhone, since I don’t know exactly how this would handle the T-mobile/Sprint crossovers, but it’s still pretty interesting.
