Apple’s iPhone X has been the center of attention lately. The company launched its latest flagship on Nov. 3, and ever since, the web has been flooded with reviews, opinions, guides and critics.

However, what Jules did is amazing as this is the first time we saw that it is possible on the iPhone X. Seeing an old Windows version in 2017 is not something that we see every day, moreover, seeing it on a 2017 iPhone running Apple’s software is more than unlikely.
