Someone brought back the iconic iOS 4 as an iPhone app
This is a true blast from the past.
If you’ve been an iPhone stan since the iPhone 3G and want a blast from the past, one developer is looking to recreate the experience of iOS 4 as an app for your new iPhone.
Called OldOS, the iPhone app faithfully recreates many parts of iOS 4, from photo albums to how Safari looked nearly a decade ago. Notes also brings back the classic yellow color, there’s “slide to unlock” functionality, and it even recreates a Home button that responds to presses.
The Verge notes that certain things, like YouTube and Messages, don’t work, but that’s ok, you’re here for the experience.
While TestFlight is a way for developers to test apps before a full release, Apple typically doesn’t take kindly to this kind of thing, so there’s a good chance it will be removed.
