This Case Lets You Run Android on an iPhone


In order not to totally sideline iPhone users because Android is already dominating the market, some group of developers has come up with a solution on how to run Android on iPhone. It's an iPhone case that runs Android.


To be candid with you, installing Android OS on iPhone OS will be like 17 Goliath’ fighting a small David; an insurmountable  task but mirroring the OS on the iPhone screen is doable. Lee devised a few new Android components that allowed streaming the screen contents from Android to iOS. He tested this concept with a Nexus 5 before building the standalone case.


Lee built the case version from a Lemaker HiKey development board. This device has a Kirin 620 SoC, 2GB of RAM, and 8GB of on-board storage. It's sufficient to run Android 6.0.1 without being too huge. Lee was able to 3D print a case for the board and battery with a Lightning cable snaking out the bottom. When plugged into an iPhone, he can launch a custom app that listens for the case. Upon connecting, the hardware in the case streams the full Android experience to the iPhone screen.
