Android is undoubtedly the world’s best-selling operating system (OS) in the world. Also, unlike Apple’s iOS, Android is open-source, which allows manufacturers to customize the looks and features of their Android devices.
Since Android is more open and adaptable than iOS, many Android users who like the iOS interface always look to integrate the user interface (UI) of iOS into their device to get the feel and look of an iPhone, which is possible to do by using a combination of apps, launchers, and other tips and tricks.
This has resulted in an iOS 16 lookalike launcher named “Launcher iOS 16” on the Google Play Store to be downloaded over 50 million downloads with the iOS 16 yet to be released for iPhones. The copycat iOS launcher offers design changes and features that are expected to be released with iOS 16 for iPhones.
For those unversed, an Android launcher is basically an app that runs on the device’s home screen with its own design and personalization features by modifying the software design and features of the phone’s OS without making permanent changes.
“Launcher iOS 16 sets a new standard for the Android mobile operating system. It makes your phone better than before. And now it opens up to amazing possibilities for launcher on your phone. With Launcher iOS 16, Your phone is the most powerful, personal, and intelligent devices they’ve ever been,” says LuuTinh Developer, the creator of the software, which has 4.8 ratings on the Play Store.
The app is not new to the Google Play Store and was published three years ago, starting with iOS 13. Ever since the app has been recreating the iOS experience on Android and getting updated with the release of every subsequent iOS version to reflect the new changes.
Coming to the “Launcher ?iOS 16?”, it recreates the iOS Home Screen, namely the dock, Force Touch menus on the apps, “jiggle mode,” iOS-styled App Library, widgets, and more. It also replaces the app icons with iOS icons, such as Messages, Notes, and Camera. Besides this, it even swaps the Google Play icon with an App Store icon.
Like any good Android launcher, the app also offers users with customization features not even offered to iPhone users, such as the ability to easily rename apps, modify app categorization in-app library, change app animations, home screen, etc.
However, it does feature the new ?iOS 16’s? lock screen redesign, which is an important upgrade to iOS 16. Another put-off is the display of advertisements while configuring the different customization options it offers.
If you are interested in trying out the “Launcher iOS 16 on your Android device to get the feel of the iPhone, you can go to the Google Play Store where it is available as a free download.
