Best Android Emulators for iOS

Wouldn’t it be awesome to run Android on your iPhone or iPhone, especially given the high quality specs that Apple devices do come with? Android is one of the most powerful operating systems for smartphones in the world and has exciting apps and games that you would fancy on your iOS device.

This is where emulators come in. To save you the hassle of dealing with inferior emulators, I have compiled a list of the best Android emulators for iOS:


The iAndroid emulator is definitely the best Android emulator for the iPhone and iPad. This emulator lets you download every app and enjoy every feature that Android users enjoy without messing up with your original iOS files.

You can install iAndroid on both a Jailbroken device and one that hasn’t been jailbroken. Both methods are easy to use, so you don’t need to worry about having to jailbreak a device that isn’t already jailbroken.

Once installed, it is easy to switch between iOS and Android on your iPhone or iPad. And if you get bored with iOS, you can easily switch back to iOS alone just by uninstalling the app. Uninstallation is simple too and wont mess with your iOS files.

Alien Dalvik Emulator

Another emulator that you would definitely love when running Android on iOS is the Alien Dalvik Emulator, developed by Myriad. This emulator works across different devices, from iOS to streaming media devices and set top boxes. If you are willing to push it further, you can even run it on a home gateway.

If you are looking for something more than an entertainment emulator, something that will help you in application development and customization, then this is your appropriate emulator. It can run on both the iPad and iPhone and operates without any notable hitches.

How to download Alien Dalvik Emulator on iOS

Follow the steps below to download the Dalvik Emulator on your iOS device for free:

  • Open Cydia on your iPhone
  • Tap Manage, then go to Sources
  • Find or add to sources
  • Select this source, search for Dalvik Emulator from the list
  • Tap on it to download without jailbreaking, then wait for the download to complete

With these apps, hopefully you are now able to simulate your favorite android apps and games directly on iOS from your iPhone or iPad.

Make sure to download versions of games that have graphics that can be supported by your current version of the iPad or iPhone. The operating system will also side load with iOS on your device, hence you need to free up enough space.
