Someone rebuilt iOS 4 from the ground up as an iPhone app
This Monday, we saw the future of Apple’s various operating systems at WWDC 2021, including a sneak peek at iOS 15. The next big iOS software update will not be ready until this fall, but we were shown some of the most significant new features that will be arriving in the update, such as spatial audio and Portrait mode for FaceTime, the new SharePlay feature to watch TV shows and movies with friends, overhauled notifications, Focus, Live Text, and more.
The future is exciting, but sometimes it’s just as fun to take a step back and explore the past. To that end, 18-year-old developer Zane has rebuilt iOS 4 as an iPhone app called OldOS which he says is "designed to be as close to pixel-perfect as possible." Everything you remember about the old-school operating system has been recreated from scratch using SwiftUI.
