Accessing iOS apps is easy – really easy. Anyone can do this from their iPhone or iPad, and no device jailbreak is required. All you have to do is download the app to your device via desktop or load apps from your mobile browser. Before AltStore and AltServer became mainstream for sideloading apps on iPhones and iPads, you may remember using Saurik’s Cydia Impactor app. Unfortunately, this option hasn’t worked for some time now for users without paid Apple developer accounts. This article is about how to Sideload Apps on iPhone.
Sideloady has been around for a while, at least since iOS and iPadOS 13 took over. It’s still maintained and offers full support for sideloading apps on iPhones and iPads running iOS and iPadOS 15, and even Macs with the Apple M1/M1 Pro /M1 Max. One nice thing about Sideloady is that it supports several advanced options that users may want to use when loading their own apps. Below are the steps to Sideload Apps on iOS.
