Is there an iOS emulator for Windows (PC) similar to BlueStacks?

Which is the best iOS emulator for Windows (pc)?

Simply put, only on Mac. Running a thing we Mac users would like to call xCode, which so happens to include a Device Simulator, which can simulate anything from the latest iPhone to the latest AppleTV.

The only problem with Xcode is that when a new version of macOS comes out, Xcode tends to quickly drop support for the version you are currently running.

In my case, I was running Yosemite on my Mac Pro (mid-2006, the first generation), and the latest as of now requires El Captain, which the guy who made the modified Yosemite install image hasn’t made one for El Cap.

Sorry but there are no such “EMULATORS” like that of Bluestacks for the iOS environment. Similarly, you can easily find blogs claiming “TOP 9/10 iOS EMULATOR AND STUFF” but please don’t download them.

They all are adware and just give you an impression of the iOS experience with a couple of apps.

Furthermore, for all intents of usefulness and accuracy ~ It is impossible to have anything resembling an iOS emulator, in the manner in which you are asking within your question.

Principally, it would require Apple to deliver the proper iOS software and the proper permissions for any third-party applications to test or allow by signing it.

Not to mention, lacking a proper HW & SW integrated device for testing use; most testing would be hypothetical or “non-real world”.

Which is the best iOS emulator for Windows (pc)?

Short: There currently are no iOS emulators for PC and there probably aren’t ever going to be emulators for iOS on PC in the future either. Why?

Because frankly, Apple has no incentive to have people run their OS on any system that they did not sell (iPhones, iPods, etc). As opposed to Google Android which is not tied to a specific hardware company.

Fake iOS Emulators: Simulators

Anything you may find online that claims to be an emulator for iOS, will be software that will simulate something that looks kind of like the Apple iOS, but really has none of the core functions that a real emulated iOS would have: you won’t be able to connect it to your apple account, install apps, perform purchases, you won’t be able to jailbreak or root the thing. Essentially it’s just a fancy, Apple-looking skin that is sold as an “emulator”.

Most of these fake emulators will come with monetization that automatically installs unwanted software on your computer, ads, etc. In other words, it borders on unwanted software/malware in some cases.

Why iOS Emulators probably never will exist

iOS for Apple devices is an operating system, but the company, Apple, is primarily in the business of selling hardware. They sell Phones, Watches, Tablets all using the iOS operating system.

From a monetary point of view, most of their money comes from hardware sales. So allowing people to install their iOS and all the Apps that can be installed on a PC or any kind of device not issued by Apple is not In their monetary interest, as it will probably decrease their hardware sales.

So Apple keeps the source code to themselves, as it is their good right to do and there probably will never be a real iOS Emulator.

Probably at some point, we might see a program that can run IPA Apple Apps, but even that seems very unlikely since Android emulators are so incredibly easy to come by and will essentially run any App that iOS would.

The only solution for now: Go Android!

Since there are no iOS Emulators, legitimate ones anyways, available for download anywhere, the only way to still play your favorite mobile games on PC is to simply go for Android.

There are literally dozens if not hundreds of Emulators for Android devices out there and Google is not planning on changing that anytime soon.

They are not in the business of selling hardware and want as many people as possible to use their store and software, therefore not suppressing and discouraging the porting of the Android OS to any other kinds of devices.

If you want to hack mobile games, want to root a device on PC, bot mobile games, etc, then Android emulators are really the way to go for now and probably will be for quite some time.


No, a PC and an iOS device have different architectures. Pc is Intel x64 based and iOS Device arm64 or arm7 which is clearly different.

A release application is compiled for iOS Devices, so it’s impossible (I hope not having mistakes) do this.

      You can reinstall apps on your Android device if you purchased them from the Google Play Store. And, even better, you don’t need to pay for the apps again to retrieve them from the store. This means you can have your old apps back in a matter of minutes if you buy a new Android device or reset your old one. Furthermore, you can install the apps on all your Android devices without purchasing the apps again. To retrieve the apps, you must use the same Google account you used when you bought them.

      1. Launch the Play Store app on your Android device. You can find the app icon on one of the screens or in the Apps menu.

      2. Tap or press the “Menu” key and choose “My Apps” from the menu.

      3. Select the “All” tab to view all apps you purchased or downloaded for free from the Play Store.
