So let's dive in to see some more details on the matter.

Hacker Manages To Run Windows 95 On The iPhone X

The trick was performed by the YouTuber Hacking Jules who has managed to put Windows 95 on the iPhone X. The hacker not only runs Windows 95 on the device but also plays Simcity 2000. Before we proceed to the video, we must note that the operating system is twenty two years old.

If you have some technical know-how and are interested in running the Windows 95 operating system on your iPhone X, you would need to use the Power DOS application.

You will see huge letterboxes on the top and the bottom portion of the display.

The iPhone X features an A11 Bionic SoC and we have found that it's even more powerful than the MacBook Pro, so the smooth user experience of the Windows 95 operating system is expected. There will be more details so do stay tuned.
