Corellium iOS Kernel Research Virtual iPhone Hardware. Corellium virtualizes any mobile device hardware through software platform and allows you to test on various different devices without actually having physically had those devices. This is not the same as simulation as we get with Xcode and with other platforms where you would just simulate the iOS on a different iPhone through the Mac. this is actually a virtualized hardware it’s going to be basically a one-to-one clone of the device as if the device was a physical devices.
Can be an emulated or virtualized ARM chip and it’s gonna have every aspect of the operating system. currently this only works on beta test software. on their official Twitter page if you scroll down you’ll see a couple retweets from people who have posted screenshots of the software. Because this is actually a virtualized hardware not a real iPhone but Xcode will essentially just assume it is and treat it as one. this can allow developers to essentially connect up other iPhone and hardware that they don’t actually own or they’ve not actually bought but it worked the same way as if they did really have these physical devices.
Corellium Hypervisor for ARM enables to run virtual iPhones in the cloud with game-changing features like: – Run any version of iOS – On demand thread list & kernel backtrace – Optional jailbreak for any version – Web-based debugging – And much more! This allows you to test your apps test the functionality of them using through this sort of simulated iOS version now this is actually going to be very different to what this virtualized hardware is whereas because this is actually running through the Mac. obviously, it’s running on x86 processor now an ARM processor and it’s not really running iOS in the sense that it’s not gone through the secure boot chain.
Obviously not real Apple hardware there’s no real control over what Apple can allow running on them so we can have sort of customized versions of iOS and allow things that we wouldn’t normally be allowed with a real iPhone and that’s what has allowed us to do this next thing
