Have you ever wanted to run iOS apps on your Linux machine? Then you’ve come to the right place. We will provide you information and free downloads on how to do this. Please note that there currently aren’t any emulators out there that can fully run the iPhone, iPad, and iPod operating system, but there are some programs out there that can partially simulate them. Let’s start off with the best one currently available that simulates the iPad.
One way to run a limited number of iPad apps is with iPadian. It is compatible with Windows, Mac, and Linux Operating Systems. This program uses Adobe Air to simulate rather than emulate the iPad interface and apps.
It works, but it has some limitations. First, Apple would never allow this to run their own App Store, so iPadian forces you to use their own custom built App Store. This store has a very limited number of apps to choose from, but they are working on adding more all the time. There are a number of built in apps that allow you to do such things as browse the Internet, check your email, watch videos, engage in social interaction, listen to music, and view photos. It gives users a great experience of what the actual iPad interface is like, and is definitely worth trying out if you are considering purchasing an iOS device but have never used one before.
iEmu is another such program, but it is still under development. They are trying to develop a way to fully emulate the iPhone, iPad, and iPod OS (iOS) so that they can boot in QEMU. The people behind iEmu haven’t made everything possible yet, but if they ever do release anything, we’ll have it here at freeemulator. Check back again soon for any updates.
