Android OS is adapted to almost all phones, watches, TVs and other gadgets. The only exception, of course, is Apple products. Correlium’s Sandcastle project aims to correct this “misunderstanding”.
The result of their work is the possibility to install the Android beta version on the iPhone already now. This was made possible thanks to the Checra1n utility, which allows access to the file system of some devices, including the iPhone. The reaction of Apple was quite predictable: at the end of the previous year it submitted a lawsuit against Correlium.
However, without waiting for the outcome of the lawsuit, Correlium offers everyone who wants to take a risk and install on their iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus a working (although not entirely problem-free) Android installation.
If you evaluate the results of the performed work, they are more than modest: part of the “apple” hardware under Android does not function, including the camera, video accelerator, Bluetooth, audio module and cellular modem. Only the CPU, touchscreen and file system work. However, if you have an old, useless iPhone 7, why not make such an extraordinary experiment?
