Best iPhone Launchers for Android [November 2019]
Android has a highly-customizable system appealing to intermediate users. For example, you can switch up your user interface in any way you want. On the other hand, iOS is much more limited, but its user-friendly features and simplicity make it popular. So, what can you do if you’re a fan of both?
Well, you can get both devices and use them interchangeably. However, you may also get an iOS launcher and install it on your Android device. If you want the best out of both worlds, keep reading this article and find out how.
The iLauncher is considered among the best iOS launchers for Android. It’s considerably lighter than most other launchers, and it’s fairly simple and user-friendly. Since it doesn’t clog your memory and CPU, you can expect sublime performance and smooth feel while swiping and tapping.
The interface strongly resembles the iOS system with certain app icons (browser, messages, phone) switching to a familiar iPhone look. You can personalize the system by adjusting scroll speed, adding folder previews, and setting up new gestures.
If you want to, you can pay up for additional features, but the free version of the launcher is more than enough. The app works well with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and later releases.
iPhone X Launcher
The iPhone X Launcher will turn your Android interface into a carbon-copy of the latest iOS release. In the most recent update, your Android will become an iPhone 11 with the iOS13 system design.
When it comes to copying the interface, this launcher probably does the best job. Even the default background image will turn to the familiar iPhone wallpaper. Therefore, it’ll feel almost as if you’re using the real iPhone X.
The transitions are fairly smooth and the lock screen works without any issues. Also, certain apps such as Settings are modified to look exactly like those on iPhone. The main downside of this launcher is that the majority of customization options are only available with the premium version.
i6 Plus Launcher
The i6 Plus Launcher is somewhat underrated as it turns your Android interface into that of an iPhone6. Since it’s a fairly outdated model, the majority of users prefer the more recent versions of the interface. However, this launcher probably does the most convincing job of turning your Android into iPhone (aesthetically).
The app icons are exactly the same as on iPhone 6 and the top and bottom bars don’t differ from the original at all. On top of that, it offers a splendid performance. It won’t lag or glitch when you’re navigating through the interface. Also, since it’s smaller than most it should work seamlessly on older Android devices.
The only major downside of i6 plus launcher is that it’s only freeware, meaning that you can’t get rid of the ads that may occasionally pop-up. This might be a deal-breaker for many users that would otherwise prefer to use it.
The Launcher iOS13 is another smooth iOS launcher that turns your regular Android interface into that of iOS13. Performance and feature-wise, it is probably the best from this list but it needs a lot of memory and processing power. Therefore, if you’re having an older phone an outdated version of Android, this launcher may not work as well as it should.
A great thing about it is the number of customization options. You can customize the home screen in any way that you like. This includes changing the appearance of your app icons, adding widgets, changing app names, and such.
Despite all the upsides, there are a few things that Launcher iOS13 still has to solve. Since the launcher is still relatively new you may encounter small bugs, such as your app icons switching places or disappearing from the home screen. Furthermore, an occasional ad may pop up while you’re navigating the Home screen. However, this mostly happens when you launch the “Settings” app.
The xOS Launcher gained a lot of fans in recent months, mostly because of its rich customization options. It puts a wide range of different themes and backgrounds at your disposal, allowing you to create a unique user interface.
You’ll find a bunch of interesting features like auto-arranging apps (in alphabetical order), clock app icon that’s ticking and accurate and a lot of other interface-managing options.
On the other hand, this launcher may fail in smooth performance. The swiping and transitioning can perform slower when compared to other launchers from this list. However, if you prefer a stylish interface and highly-customizable aesthetics you won’t even notice this issue.
Launchers – Quick to Disappear
When searching for a perfect iOS launcher for your Android, you may have to act quickly. The majority of launchers that were available last year are discontinued today. This is due to various reasons – new Android updates render them useless, glitches become more apparent, and others.
So, if you like a launcher from this list, you should try and get it as soon as possible. It may disappear from the Play Store very soon.
