iOS Core, XNU Kernel, Ported To Non Apple Hardware

Mobile / Tech

Software developers, Wincom, have just ported the XNU Kernel (the core elements that make up Apple’s iOS operating system) to non Apple hardware. The XNU Kernel is what Apple used to develop OSX and iOS. Steven Troughton-Smith provided a picture of a Nokia N900 running the XNU Kernel successfully. This build does not make a whole operating system as the user interface elements are absent. So basically you are looking at text with no GUI but the foundations of iOS are here and could possibly lead to different variants of iOS being built. Of course this is all in theory and who knows what Apple will say about this, litigation seems to be the norm in the tech world these days and Wincom just might end up facing the suits before too long.
