I have a Windows PC and VMware Workstation. I am trying to figure out a way to install iOS on it.

Is there is way to install iOS on VMware Workstation?

No. See relevant Stackoverflow discussion.

In short, you need to virtualize the ARM cpu, not an x86 model. Additionally, you'd need to virtualize the swipes and taps and whatnot, which would be quite the tall order.

Here's one project that's attempting to virtualize iOS on the QEMU platform: IEMU.

" iPadian is not a emulator so you can't run .ipa apps downloaded from iTunes, instead of that we create a custom App store where we put all the compatibles apps to run inside iPadian. " Apps have to be converted – Mark Oct 30 '14 at 10:15
