iEmu was a project started by cmw that worked to get iOS booting in QEMU, "a generic and open source machine emulator and virtualizer." The project aimed to support all devices (iPhone, iPod touch, iPad, and Apple TV (2nd generation)).

iEmu was succeeded by an emulation-as-a-service company called Virtual[1], later acquired by Citrix[2]. Most recently, at TenSec 2017, Wade demoed a successful restore of an emulated iPhone 6, followed by attaching an IDA debugger to the emulated iPhone’s running kernel.
