HipStore iOS 10.2

Are you missing being able to download your favorite apps and games ? This is something that we used to only be able to do with a jailbreak, by using apps like vShare [ext link] to help us gain access to paid content without paying for it. Right now there isn’t a jailbreak for iOS 10 and, with iOS 10.2 now released, we seem to be moving further and further away. We know that both Pangu and Taig are hard at work on an iOS 10.2 jailbreak [ext link] but that doesn’t help us in the meantime.

There is help at hand though, in the form of an app installer called HipStore. This allows you to download apps and paid content, very much like Cydia does but with a slight difference. With HipStore, you do not need to download a jailbreak first and, although you don’t get the depth of content that you get with Cydia it is a pretty good alternative. However, you can’t download it from the app store because Apple will not allow apps like this through their security guidelines but we are going to tell you how to install it on your device.

  • iPad Air, Air 2
