No jailbreak required: iPhone X runs Windows 10 and Office 2019 demos

In February, the site reported that an APP called UTM would allow users to run the Windows 10 operating system on an iPhone device without jailbreak. Hacking Jules, a veteran development channel that ran Windows Vista successfully on the iPhone 7 and Windows 95/macOS 8 on the iPhone X, released a video again today, demonstrating the full Windows 10 system experience running on the iPhone X.

“In the absence of jailbreak, the iPhone X runs the iOS 13.4 system and can experience the full Windows 10 version and Office 2019 apps,” the video description reads. The Windows 10 v1607 feature update is used in the video. The entire installation process takes 2 hours and the normal boot-on time takes 20 minutes. But there may be better performance on the new iPhone/iPad. “

Because iOS devices lack hardware virtualization support, UTM applications can perform semi-virtualization operations by connecting to the SPICE server in QEMU. With UTM, you can run Windows 10 or even Linux on your iPhone or iPad.

UTM applications need to be loaded in the sideload mode and can run without jailbreak. However, subsequent updates released by Apple could undermine compatibility. After a slow installation process, some people have managed to run Windows 10 desktops on their iPhones. The project is still in its early stages and still has a lot of work to do, but only a few loading screens are available.

It is also worth noting that the TCG accelerator used to run the operating system within the application can only run at about 70%, but performs better in low graphics use cases. Unfortunately, windows 10 or Windows 10 on ARM cannot be run natively on Apple devices.

If you’re interested, you can run Windows 10 on your iPhone as follows:

1. Download altStore and add the source “https://alt.getutm.app”.

2. Install UTM (https://github.com/utmapp/UTM/releases).

3. After installing UTM, download and use the Windows 10 ISO image.
