Sideload and install iOS apps on iPhone or iPad


AltDeploy is a desktop tool for sideloading and installing iOS apps on iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. It makes it possible to install any third-party app on your iOS device using a .IPA file.

AltDeploy is one of the best alternatives to Cydia Impactor. It can install apps quickly without any hassle and offers a couple of additional features, such as saving your Apple ID so that you don't have to re-enter it every time you wish to install an app with AltDeploy.

AltDeploy does have a couple of limitations, such as:

  • It currently supports macOS and doesn't work on Windows or Linux.
  • You can only have 3 apps installed at a time.
  • Apps expire every 7 days and have to be re-installed with AltDeploy once expired.

How to Install iOS Apps with AltDeploy

Step 1: Download AltDeploy software on your computer and open it.

Step 2: Connect your iPhone or iPad to your computer.

Step 3: Browse and select the IPA file which you wish to install.

Step 4: Enter your Apple ID and password. This is used to generate a signing certificate for installing the app.

Step 5: Once the app is installed, open the Settings app on your iPhone and go to General > Profiles, tap on the profile labeled with your Apple ID, then press the Trust button.

Step 6: You should now be able to open and enjoy using the app!
