AltStore – How to Install on iPhone and iPad for 3rd Party Apps


This instructional guide will show you how to install AltStore on iPhone and iPad.

AltStore is an app installer that works on iPhone and iPad for applications you can’t find within the Apple App Store.

This includes various Streaming Apps, tools, games, and more.

AltStore works similarly to Aptoide which provides apps not available in official app stores.

However, unlike Aptoide and Aurora Store, AltStore does not host apps for installation.

Instead, it enables users the ability to sideload .ipa files on an iOS device such as iPhone or iPad.

Sideloading is popular among Firestick users who jailbreak their devices for access to various applications.

AltStore works in a similar manner to help get the most out of your iOS device.

The app’s official Github Page describes it as the following:


Your online activity is actively tracked by your Internet Service Provider, app/addon devs, and government through your identifying IP address.

Stream anonymously by using IPVanish VPN.

IPVanish will encrypt your connection to the Internet and mask your IP address so you will remain anonymous.


IPVanish backs their service with a 30-day money back guarantee.

IPVanish allows you to use your account on unlimited Internet-connected devices

AltStore resigns apps with your personal development certificate and sends them to a desktop app, AltServer, which installs the resigned apps back to your device using iTunes WiFi sync.

Installing AltStore will require a PC or Mac computer which is used for the AltServer Platform.

AltServer works with AltStore to allow communication between your iTunes store on PC and your iPhone or iPad.

Using AltStore is a great way to find applications that you cannot find within the Apple App Store.

However, these steps will also work for any variation of iPhone or iPad.
