Android—IPhone sangam!

Mesuit carrying case doubles as smart hardware, to run an Android OS on an iOS handset

IPhone owners sometimes wish they could—once in a while—run an Android app on their phones. This is because many apps on Google's Play store are not available for iPhone users on the AppStore for iOS. This used to mean lugging a separate Android phone. Not any more.


Now, you can run Android on an iPhone! In fact you can install dual SIMs and switch at will from Android to iOs on a single handset, thanks to a 'smart' case., an e-commerce platform for technology products, has brought an iPhone dual SIM case called Mesuit to India. The leverages the home device’s dual-SIM, dual-standby features to offer simultaneous access to all functionalities of the two OS on a single phone, thus bringing the best of both worlds to the user.

This is claimed to be the world’s first and only smart hardware that runs Android OS on iPhones in the form of an app and supports one-key hot swapping. The Mesuit case is a fully-functional mobile device that has its own modem. Once you download the app and turn the Bluetooth on, your device is ready to be used either as an iPhone or as an Android phone. You can easily connect the case with the iPhone via the lightning port.

Mesuit runs a proprietary Android-based OS with an Apus Launcher, called Mesuit OS 1.0, on iPhone 6/6S. It is powered by a Mediatek octa-core processor with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of storage capacity that allows users to store & transfer photos and videos from the phone into the case with a single tap and even enjoy dual Whatsapp, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram on one screen. It works as an external battery pack providing an additional seven hours of talk time and has a slot to insert an additional SIM card.

Says Manikant Jain, CEO of “Mesuit is like owning two smartphones without having to carry both. The smart case not only allows dual-booting by tapping an app icon, but also adds extra battery life, storage, SIM slot and access to all Android apps on your iPhone."

The Mesuit case, also provides a 1,700 mAh backup to the device.

Mesuit iPhone6 and iPhone6S case is available in India on and is priced at Rs. 9,990.
