All users who buy a mobile device made by Apple, whether an iPhone, iPad or iPod touch, want to enjoy the corresponding version of iOS and all the advantages that offers us compared to Android. Some developers like to test and squeeze their devices to the maximum by testing different versions of operating systems not only Android but also different versions of Windows and macOS, as we have taught previously. The main motivation of these users is to verify if the hardware of the devices is powerful enough to move old operating systems , as is the case of which we talk in this article.
A user has managed to emulate a version of Microsoft Windows XP on their iPhone, and as we can see in the video above, the performance leaves a lot to be desired , not only for the time it charges but also for the slow time it offers to interact. The look is the same that we can find on any computer where we have just installed the veteran operating system Windows XP, an operating system that stopped receiving support a little over a year, although it is still found in many public bodies and large companies.
In order to run Windows XP, this user has used an iPhone 7 in its version of 4.7 inches, and through Xcode has installed the Bochs emulator with a copy of Microsoft Windows XP. All this with the version of iOS 10.2.1. To navigate with the mouse, we just have to slide your finger on the screen so that the arrow moves to wherever we want . If you are curious and want to try emulating Windows XP in your device, in the GitHub page of this user you can find all the information related to this project.
