AppCake.com - AppCake is a familiar name to jailbreakers all over the world, once one of the most popular tweaks in Cydia that help us install IPA files to iPhone or iPad very easily. Jailbreak is no longer as widely available as it used to be, although we are starting to see more and more utilities released again.
Not all iOS users even want to jailbreak. However, most want the opportunity to install apps other than those in the app store, and AppCake offers just that. The app update has made it available for use outside of Cydia, so that all users don't have the opportunity to use this unique app for free.
AppCake, What is ?
AppCake is a free platform for iOS users that allows you to install unsigned IPA files to your iPhone or iPad. These are files that are legal to use, like game emulators but are not allowed into the official iOS app store as they cannot bypass Apple policy restrictions. Many of you will be familiar with Cydia Impactor, a similar app, but there is a big difference between them – where Cydia Impactor requires you to download the IPA file you want from the internet, AppCake has a whole store full of preloaded files.
AppCake was released in 2008 by iPASTORE and developed by iPhoneCake. Recent updates have made it compatible with any iPhone or iPad on iOS 9 to iOS 13 and, and already has many apps included in the store, and you can also install your own external files.
How to Install AppCake
There's no longer a requirement to jailbreak your iPhone or iPad to use AppCake, though that option is still open to you if you prefer. With full support for iOS 13, AppCake apps are signed using enterprise certificates. The downside is that Apple can revoke these certificates – installing an anti-revocation app or a reputable VPN will stop this.
