Here’s how to download Kodi 17 Krypton IPA or DEB file on iOS 10 and then install it on a compatible iPhone, iPad or iPod touch device.
Kodi, one of the world’s most loved media playback applications has recently received a big software update, bringing it up to version number 17. The update is not all about changing the version number and getting a fancy new code name though – it’s Krypton, in case you were wondering – and there are some excellent new additions to the app.
If you own an iPhone then Kodi is arguably the best media center app you are going to find, but you won’t find it on the App Store. The full changelog can be found over at kodi.wiki, but highlights include:
-Brand new interface for both touchscreen and non-touchscreen devices.
-A new web-based interface named Chorus2.
-A series of revamped settings menus for easier navigation.
-Improved setup processes for PVR add-ons.
-Better tag, album, and art information handling in the music library.
and much much more.
Kodi, which originally sprang up from the Xbox Media Center app, is not something which plays well with App Store rules for a variety of reasons, none of which are important for this post. What you do need to know though is that getting Kodi onto an iOS device needs some specific steps to be followed. In fact, there are two sets of steps representing the two different routes that users can go down; one involves jailbreaking, and the other does not.
We have written guides on both options, explaining the steps required in order to get Kodi up and running and I strongly recommend that you check them out if you are hankering after your Kodi fix and own an iPhone which is thus far distinctly lacking in the Kodi department. You can find these guides below:
