Here are the ways to install Kodi on iPhone or iPad without jailbreaking:
Method 1: Using Xcode
The first method to install Kodi on your iPhone or on your iPad without having to jailbreak is to use a small Xcode trick that allows users to install third-party applications or unidentified developers.
Things you will need
To follow this process, you will need the following:
- IOS App Signer
- A Mac with the latest version of MacOS
- The latest Xcode version of the App Store
- A .deb file from Kodi
Do you already have everything? Well let's move on.
Installing Kodi in iOS 10
Follow the steps below to install Kodi on iOS 10:
1 Start Xcode and click on "Create a New Project".
2 When you see the main interface of Xcode, select "iOS", and click on "Single View Application". Then, click on "Next".
3 Give your application a name, "Product name", and an organization identifier, "Organization Identifier" . For this guide, we will use "KodiApp" as the product name, and "in.neeogangwar" as the identifier of the organization. Then, click on "Next".
4 Select a location to save the project and click "Create . "
5. In the interface that will open, click on the drop-down menu next to "Team" and select your name in the list.
6 Connect your iPhone or iPad to your Mac using a USB cable . Then, select it in the list of devices shown at the top, in Xcode.
7 Next, start iOS App Signer , the other application that you had downloaded. Click on "Browse" and select the Kodi .deb file that you had previously downloaded. You must enter your data in the drop-down menus with the labels "Signing Certificate" and "Provisioning Profile" . Then, click on "Start," the start button on the bottom right.
8 You will be asked for a location to save the output file . Select the place where you want the file to be saved and click "Save . " The application will do its job in a couple of additional steps.
9 . Once the iOS App Signer has done its work, return to Xcode. Here, click on the "Window" option in the menu bar and go to "Devices" .
10. Here, click on the "+" button in the "Installed Apps" section . Select the file that the iOS App Signer had exported, which has the .IPA extension.
Xcode will show you a message saying that your iPhone is busy, since it will start installing Kodi on your phone or on your tablet. Once you have done this, Kodi will be shown in the list of installed devices and, in addition, you can also see it on the home screen of your iPhone.
Acceptance of the certificate
Before you can start Kodi on iOS, you will have to accept the certificate on your iPhone telling iOS that it is trustworthy. To do this, follow these steps:
1 Go to Settings -> General -> Device Management .
2 Here you can see the application, then click on "Trust" .
3. Then, you can start Kodi on your iPhone and finally enjoy it. All of them without having jailbroken.
Before finishing, it is important to say that if you use an Apple ID that is not a developer ID and you have not paid the cost of the license, you will have to reinstall the application from Xcode every 7 days (a pain in the ass). However, if you send the application with an Apple developer ID, you can use the application for a full year before having to reinstall it.
Method 2: Using BuildStore
While the first method was completely free, the truth is that it is somewhat tedious and hardly makes up for making that to install only an application on your iPhone without jailbreaking. If you do not mind paying money, you also have this other method without jailbreaking.
BuildStore is a website that allows users to upload applications to their iPhones without jailbreaking . The problem is that you have to pay about 9.99 € per year as a subscription.
Installing an application from the BuildStore is very simple. You must go to the BuildStore website, find the application you want to install and click on Install. The application will be installed on your iPhone without any problem.
To start it, you'll have to trust the developer certificate on your iPhone just like you did after installing the application through Xcode.
You can install applications on your iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus without having to jailbreak. There are a lot of applications that can be used with Xcode. The BuildStore method is much easier than using Xcode, but you will have to pay 9.99 per year to continue using that service.
In addition, with the BuildStore you can only register a device , so if you want to use the service on several devices, you will have to pay for each and every one of them. If you know any other way to install apps without jailbreak on an iPhone, you can leave a comment below.
