An app to make Androids copy the look of iPhone running iOS is widely popular. So many people wish their Android was an iPhone that Launcher iOS 16 has been downloaded over 50 million times from Google Play. And a rival app has just as many.

That sure is a lot of jealous Android users.

Apps to make Android imitate iPhone are crazy popular

More than 55% of U.S. phone users have an iPhone, while Android is down at 44%. The gap is even wider for younger users. A whopping 88% of U.S. teens own an iPhone. It’s not surprising that Android users who want to fit in will install an app to make their Samsung appear to be an Apple.

Launcher iOS 16 sets a new standard for the Android mobile operating system,” says LuuTinh Developer, the creator of the software. “It makes your phone better than before.” It’s available free on Google Play.

Another option is Phone 13 Launcher from SaS Developer. It also has over 50 million downloads from Google Play.

With one of these applications and a full-body case, Android users can fool their coworkers or schoolmates into thinking they have an iPhone. At least until they start exchanging test messages.

If you’re wondering about the opposite, applications to make iPhones mimic Android OS apparently aren’t a thing.

The popularity of iOS-style launchers is enough to make one wonder how many Android trolls who throw insults at iPhone users secretly have an iOS-themed launcher. Perhaps all the bluster covers up their secret jealousy.
