This tutorial will show you how to install Kodi on iPhone or iPad. Kodi is a free media streaming application that is available on almost all operating systems.
Unlike Android based devices such as phones and streaming boxes that provide Kodi within the Google Play Store, Apple does not offer this application.
Because the Kodi App is not available anywhere on the App Store, we must install it through a 3rd party app store.
There are numerous tutorials on installing Kodi on iOS using a computer or with a jail-broken phone. Using the steps below requires neither and takes less than 5 minutes!
With Kodi installed on your iPhone or iPad you will be able to take it with you on the go!
Before installing Kodi on your iPhone or iPad, be sure that there is enough storage available to host this app and any subsequent add-ons. You can find available storage on iPhones and iPads using the steps below:
- From your device’s home screen Click Settings
- Click General
- Click About
- Your usable storage in GB is listed next to “Available”
TROYPOINT always recommends a VPN when installing or using Kodi. By installing a VPN on your Kodi device, you will encrypt your IP address making it impossible for your Internet Service Provider and others to view your activity.

In the tutorial below, I am using a 3rd Party App Installer known as TweakBox to download Kodi. Tweakox hosts numerous apps that are not available for download within the Apple App Store. Often times, these are paid applications that TweakBox has for free.
In the instance below, I am using an iPhone XS with iOS version 12.1.2. However, this guide will also work on other versions and devices including the iPad.
Use the following instructions to Install Kodi on your iPhone or iPad.

Kodi on iOS Extras
With TweakBox installed on your iPhone or iPad, you will now have access to tons of apps not available within the Apple App Store. These incude emulators, games, and paid apps, all for free!
TweakBox is listed as one of the Best Tweaked Apps Stores and can be used to install various other streaming applications.
If you find the guide above did not work to install Kodi, I recommend using AppValley as an alternative. AppValley is similar to TweakBox but also hosts two versions of Kodi for your respective device.
Important Note: If you find that Kodi does not work after a limited time, I suggest installing the NoThx App within TweakBox.
You can find this in the main screen of the Apps menu item. NoThx is a revoke protector that allows Kodi and other 3rd party apps to continue working as long as you are protected.
However, this will not work on all devices and is not a reliable form of revoke protection.
