So, there are two questions being asked when will there be an iOS 10 jailbreak and how do users get their hands on paid apps while they wait ? We can’t give you an answer to the first question because we don’t know. Taig and Pangu are undoubtedly working on a jailbreak as we speak but there is no way of knowing when it will be released. The second question, we can answer , HipStore.
HipStore is a kind of app store that contains millions of games, apps, ringtones and other content, all for free, similar to the jailbreak apps that we all know, like AppCake, AppSync, and Install0us or the non-jailbreak option of vShare. However, none of these contains as much content as HipStore but it isn’t a case of heading to iTunes and downloading it. The following steps will guide you through the procedure and you do not need to jailbreak to get it.

Fix HipStore Not Working Issue :
When you install HipStore you will only be able to use it for a maximum of 7 days before it crashes, and you need to reinstall it. It does this because Apple will regularly verify and revoke app certificates that they consider to be invalid and HipStore falls into this category. There is an easy way to stop this; all you need to do is install Anti Revoke VPN tool. This will hide the app certificates from Apple so that they cannot be verified and revoked.
