A lot in the tech industry have wondered, at one time or the other, how it would feel to run Android on an iPhone. Haimawan, a Chinese mobile OS virtualisation company, has announced a case that will let you do just that, called MESUIT. MESUIT is available for sale exclusively in China.
Tech developer Nick Lee demonstrated a custom iPhone case that allowed for Android (an adapted version of Android Marshmallow) to be booted on the iPhone.
MESUIT case allows the user to run a proprietary Android-based OS, called Mesuit OS 1.0, on iPhone 6/6S and iPhone 6Plus/6S Plus devices. The case also works as an external battery pack, a storage device (32GB, 64GB and 128GB) and also has its own SIM slot. Mesuit case for the iPhone 6/6S will give a 1,700 mAh backup to the device, while the case for the bigger 6 Plus/6S Plus will increase the capacity of the phone by 2,500mAh.
MESUIT cases are available on Haimawan’s subsidiary website, Jijia. The case for iPhone 6/6S is priced at 999 Yuan (approx Rs 10,000), while the case for the 6 Plus/6S Plus is available for 1,099 Yuan (approx Rs 11,000).

Companies like Samsung have left Apple behind in terms of phone hardware. Running an Andoird based OS on 2GB RAM of the iPhone might not be a seamless experience. How about a case that lets you run iOS on a Samsung Galaxy S7? Now that is something which will turn a lot of heads.
