If you are an Android user and have a hobby of “scratching” (root or flash ROM) your device, then John Wu is probably a name you’ve heard of. John Wu is the father and developer of Magisk – the most popular root tool today.
Magisk was created by John Wu in 2016 to replace SuperSU. Magisk’s advantage is that it can take root of Android device but all system files are still preserved. Compared to SuperSU, root with Magisk makes the system more stable, allowing users to update the software and overcome the “anti-root” barrier of some applications (such as Pokemon Go).
What surprised many people was that Magisk was developed when John Wu was still in school. By the time Magisk was released, John Wu was 20 years old and enrolled in Computer Science at the University of Michigan (USA).
Unexpectedly, the next career stop chosen by John Wu is a company that has nothing to do with what people know about him – Apple. On his Twitter page, the 23-year-old programmer officially announced he would work at Apple for the next 4 months as an intern. To add to the paradox, this tweet posted by him was posted with an Android phone, not an iPhone.
Under the comments of the Tweet, many people joked: “Now you can create Magisk for iPhone.“
Share with Android Police, John is not sure whether his job at Apple, but he will probably work in the virtual assistant development department Siri. John said he was happy and confident about the opportunity to do this.
