Android OS has the largest user base across the world and apart from Apple’s iOS, it doesn’t really have any major alternatives. Android gives a lot of flexibilities and customizations choice and also has a beautiful interface so its users may hardly get bored of it. But if you want to try something new, iOS OS is worth to give a try. As Android gives you the flexibility to use iOS on your Android device. But before moving ahead, it’s better to know that how much it’ll cost as iPhone is a premium priced device and everyone can’t afford to switch easily.

There are various launchers available on the Google Play Store that claim to bring an iOS experience on your Android, but it’s sad to tell you that most of them just make false claims. Most of them aren’t worth your time, so here is the best iPhone launchers which brings a feature-rich iOS experience on Android.

One Launcher

ONE-Launcher

Without a doubt, One Launcher is the best launcher that you can have for your Android. It’s the best choice if you want the iOS interface packed with various cool customization features. With iPhone-looks, it is the most feature rich program. Once the app is installed successfully and you open it, an introductory screen displays along with a button that says “Experience”. And as soon as you hit the “Experience” tab, the app takes you direct to the iOS-like homescreen. The screen that appears before you now look alike almost iOS 9. The icons, which although are a tad different, look very much the same as you would have seen on an iPhone.

Now just like on iOS, you can press and hold an icon or app to create a folder or move them around. If you press and hold in an open area on the homescreen, it brings shortcuts to Effects, Preferences, Wallpapers, Themes, Gesture Setting, etc. Like Spotlight Search in iOS 8 and iOS 9, this launcher also includes a search feature.

On the left side of the homescreen, you will find a folder dubbed “One Tools”, which includes launcher Preferences, Theme, Battery Saver, SingleHandMode, and One Wallpaper. In the preferences, you would find the settings for the launcher, on its page there’s an option which allows you to set the “One Launcher” as the default launcher, or you can also do it otherwise by going into Settings->Home. The launcher also brings a “Notification Toggle”, which adds a row of toggles in the notification shade plus you’re allowed to choose between toggles or “Quick Search”.

It allows you to set various gestures in the launcher to do certain task like you can use particular gestured to conceal apps, activate SingleHandMode and show the notification bar. One Launcher lets you pick from various transition effects like Rotate, Cube, Fade, Snake, Expand, Push, Windmill, Card Stack, Domino, Flip, Cross Flip, Cylinder and more for page-turning on the homescreen. Plus, there are also some effects for the moving of icons on the homescreen such as Breathe, Twinkle, and much more. The launcher also allows you try different themes it has like “Featured”, “Hot” and “Local”.

There are also multiple options to change app label color on the homescreen, icon size, wallpapers and more. Being so featured rich, the app is light on CPU resources, consumes less battery and shows a smooth performance throughout.  On the Google Play Store, One Launcher is available for free and does not even employ any ads in its interface and compatible with Android 2.3.3 and up

There are other options other than One Launcher, but none of them is close to One Launcher. Still, there are a few applications if you want to try out the following iPhone launchers and other software programs that brings iOS equivalent features:

i Launcher OS & Launcher 8 Pretty

i-Launcher-Lollipop--iOS-8

These two apps are explained together because virtually these are identical apps. They have the same interface, same set of few settings, features, etc.  Once you download the app and open it, you are taken to the iOS like homescreen. There are only a few customization options here and you can change the background wallpaper, create folders, and move around apps. The good thing is that both apps don’t create any problems with your phone’s performance and run smoothly.

The only problem with these two is, if your smartphone has on-screen navigation buttons, the buttons will overlap on the launcher. You can install i Launcher OS and Launcher 8 Pretty for free and they are compatible with Android 4.0.3 and up.

Control Panel – Smart Toggle

Like iOS, this app has a pretty handy feature called the Control Center which was introduced in iOS 7. It brings shortcut toggles to various tasks and features such as torch, WiFi, Airdrop, etc. and lets users control their audios, videos and more. If you want a Control Center for Android, Control Panel – Smart Toggle does the same for you. This app brings multiple toggles like data, silent mode, screen timeout, WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS and much more. Although it’s not an iOS launcher, but it brings similar iOS experienc and works fine unlike various other iPhone launchers. It’s free to install and compatible with Android 2.2 and up.

Flui Icon Pack

Flui Icon Pack

Like iOS icons, Flui Icon Pack brings the best icon pack. It brings more than 800 icons which are inspired by iOS’ design and most of them even look classier than the iOS implementation. Plus, Flui Icon Pack is available for most launchers. It’s a paid application that is compatible with Android 4.0.3 and up.

iLauncher

This iOS launcher doesn’t bring much for you apart from the iOS-like homescreen. Its homescreen matches well with the iOS homescreen plus one useful thing about it is it supports icon packs. This app leaves a lot to be desired, and brings a slow, and clunky experience. It’s a paid software program that is compatible with Android 2.3 and up.
