[Updating] Some interesting iOS Github projects

For the last few months, I have found some interesting iOS projects from Github. Most of them are tools for iOS geeks or they might be for readers like you

UTM is an open-source virtual machine based off of QEMU and JIT compilation on iOS and macOS. It allows you to run Windows, Linux, and more on your iPhone, iPad, and your mac.

2. iTorrent

iTorrent is a GUI torrent downloader on iOS with Files app support.

This means that you don’t have to use Filza or a computer to extract the file from your device, but just open the Files app on your device and move to a different app if needed.
