Usually the theme of the virtual machines what we tend to think mainly in desktop environments where they have greater meaning and utility, but given that today’s mobile devices have as much processing power, it is not unreasonable that we can use to virtualize other systemsbut does not have much meaning or utility.

This is perhaps the case of UTMa complete host of virtual machines for iOS that allows us to run Windows, Android or Linux directly on our iPhone or iPad, and without the need of jailbreak.


Free, open source and without the need of jailbreak

UTM is an open source project in a state of development, so that there isn’t really a public release, nor have dates for one. Are you looking for help from desarrolladorees and you can find all the details in GitHub.

However, it is possible to test it on your device following the detailed instructions are available for it. The first thing you should know is that you’re going to need a Apple developer account to be able to do sideload unapproved applications without the need of jailbreak. That is to say, apps like UTM.

If you already have one or if you create a new account, you’ll be able to install UTM in a simple way from the AltStore. The biggest problem that enfrentar√≠as is what they warn on the website of UTM, the developer accounts free Apple require you to log in every seven days to be active, and in these times as well face a bug in iOS 13.3.1 with the free accounts. You can use earlier or later versions of the system.
