How to sideload apps to iPhones?

When referring to iOS apps, "sideloading" means installing an app in IPA format onto an Apple device, usually through the use of a computer program such as Cydia Impactor, Xcode, on the actual device using a jailbreak method or using a signing service instead of through Apple's App Store.1


Use AltStore or Sideloadly.

I'm experimenting Sideloadly with a free Apple developer account.



  • Apps sideloaded with Sideloady, using free Apple developer account, are subjected to the 7-day signing restrictions. However, the signing lasts longer (1 year) if you have a paid Apple developer account (USD 99/year)

If purchasing a paid Apple developer account is quite steep, redditors also recommend some 3rd-party UDID Signing services to consider.
