The OldOS app takes the current iPhone back to the Stone Age

OldOS is an app that mimics the look and feel of the iPhone 4 with its iOS 4 operating system. A bit of fun for nostalgics, because every current iPhone can look like Steve Jobs still had a hand in it.

It has now been eleven years since Apple introduced iOS 4 and with it the iPhone 4. A lot has happened at the company during this time, but with an app called OldOS , every Apple user can bring the look of the now outdated operating system back to their smartphone for a little nostalgia trip. The exciting thing: Even all of the native apps are given the style of the old iOS version.

OldOS was developed by an 18 year old

The program was developed by 18-year-old New Yorker Zane. He may have got to know the app he called OldOS as a child on his parents’ iPhone 4. Thanks to the work of the young developer, you can, for example, call up websites in Safari as you might know them from before. And also the note function and the display of photos are catapulted back eleven years into the past by OldOS.

It is amazing how detailed the app works. Currently there are only a few small display problems with the internal news app and YouTube – but the New Yorker wants to eradicate those too, as he emphasizes. OldOS is currently still in the beta phase . If you want to use the app, you can download it from Apple’s Testflight . However, it is unclear whether the company will keep the creative app on the market. In the past, those responsible reacted quickly and quickly removed similar programs that violated the app store’s detailed terms of use.

The entire code of the app is available online

If you want to get a picture of the small Throwback app yourself, you should download it promptly. Alternatively, there is also the possibility of simply building your own version. Developer Zane made the entire code of the app available via GitHub.

So OldOS is a nice gimmick, especially for nostalgics. With a visual return to the iPhone 4, one also commemorates the work of Steve Jobs, who was still actively involved in the development process shortly before his death in 2011.
