How to turn iOS into Android: Give your iPhone an Android Look makeover using Andrios
The iPhone is arguably one of the most popular smartphones on the market, with more and more Android users deciding to make the switch to iOS., differently, and the change may be difficult for Android users
How can you turn iOS into Android? While there is no way of officially (or unofficially for that matter) load the Android operating system onto an iOS device, but there is something you can do to sprinkle Android-y goodness on your iPhone. It’s called Andrios, a jailbreak tweak that was launched back in May 2015 to quite a bit of hype. Why? Because it essentially turns your iPhone into an Android device complete with Lockscreen widgets, a redesigned Notification Centre and more. You can still access all your iOS apps and features though, as Andrios is only a ‘theme’ essentially and all the inner workings of iOS are still present.
So, what’s so good about Andrios? For a starter, it brings the Android notification center to iOS complete with toggles to important settings like Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, Volume, Airplane mode, etc. while also redesigning the volume slider menu to contain a music bar, search bar, and volume controller.
It also offers the Android Action Bar containing back, home and app switcher buttons for the ultimate Android experience. Users can switch to the previously used app by tapping on the back button while the middle (home) button offers a software equivalent of Apple’s home button, returning users to the main iOS interface. The app switcher button will, of course, take you to the app switching menu, and holding the button will clear all open apps.
Andrios also offers the ability to add widgets to your iOS lock screen, although we’re not quite sure where the widgets would come from as no iOS app will officially provide lock screen widgets. So, how do you get this theme and apply it to your iPhone? Carry on reading to find out.
