If you’re comfortable with the Apple ecosystem, using a Windows machine can feel a little alien. But with iPadian iOS 13 Simulator, you can get the sleek, familiar iOS experience even on a PC.

The app re-creates the mobile Apple experience on Windows desktops or laptops. (It works on Macs, too.) And right now, you can download it for less than $10.

With iPadian, you won’t face any confusing installations. The app simply overlays the iOS design on the Windows desktop, so you can navigate and open apps the way you’re used to on an iPad or iPhone.

It’s essentially a reskin, so it won’t let you into the App Store. But the iOS simulator does include access to its own store with more than 300 popular apps, some designed especially for iPadian. Power users can hit up the custom iPadian studio, which offers more than 100 premium iOS app designs and source code for both React Native and Swift. That means tons of customization possibilities.

Buy now: Get a lifetime subscription to iPadian iOS 13 Simulator for $9.99. That’s a full 60% off the usual price.
