The Apple brand in the tech world encourages other companies to follow in its footsteps. But if some are more discreet, there are others who make real carbon copies of the creations developed in Cupertino. This origin is currently shared by JingOS, the most faithful copy of iPadOS available in China.
JingOS is First Linux distribution for tablets in China, and aims to provide the same level of functionality that iPadOS offers.
The true carbon copy of iPadOS
JingOS is not only a tablet operating system, but a complete Linux distribution, created with the idea of improving the functionality and productivity of a tablet in general, taking inspiration from the iPadOS platform to deliver a simple, clean, yet productive and efficient user interface design.
Like iPadOS, the operating system also supports mouse and keyboard. In addition, the current selections of apps designed for this platform also support touch mode and desktop mode.
Note that the tablet software is just the beginning. JingOS is in development for smartphones and will be available before the end of this year, while the tablet variant will launch on December 31.
For the time being, The operating system is only compatible with Huawei MateBook 14 and Microsoft Surface 6. And although it has yet to be tested on other devices, the company aims to provide support for other tablets, including those based on ARM, in the future.
For those looking for an iPad-like experience for your tablets, but for various reasons they don’t have one, JingOS might be the better option, to the point that without the name, the less experienced wouldn’t even notice the difference.
