A young tech enthusiast has just bought iOS 4 for life and Twitter loves it for that

Apple recently announced iOS 15 at WWDC 2021 and is currently developing beta versions of the operating system for Developers. And at a time like this, a young tech enthusiast has decided to take us to iOS 4 Ten years after iOS 4 debuted on iPhone 3G, 18-year-old Zane, according to his Twitter, shared on June 9 that people “love to guess” OldOS that you can use the app to bring iOS 4. This iOS 4 is “beautifully rebuilt in SwiftUI,” which is Apple’s Developer program.

Zane explained in his tweets that the app has been designed to be “as close to the most perfect pixel as possible” and added that it is fully functional and useful as a second operating system. He added that the app was also completely open for everyone to learn, change and build. The OldOS app recovers an old and iconic iPhone home button that Apple has now removed on newer devices. The app returns this home button to the screen and uses touch vibrations to give it the feel of a real physical button.

Zane’s tweets made Twitter excited and nostalgic to impress people with how fresh the app is. A Twitter user also asked Zane what caused him to create such an app. To this, Zan said it was a love of nostalgia. “I have such a special place in my heart for this operating system and I wanted to bring it in while I showed the strength of SwiftUI,” he said. Other users asked Zan to add more beta invitations.

The best part of all of this is the return of the “unlock slide” bar, which was a classic iPhone feature. Zane’s OldOs app also brings that up and works like a user showed in a shared video.

While we’re preparing for iOS 15, it’s a gratifying setback that brings us great memories. iOS 4 currently has no iPhone available, of course, Apple has upgraded features and upgrades in more than 11 iterations. The OldOS app will let you experience iOS 4 in the best way possible without having to go back to your old device.
