Here’s how to download and install SNES4iOS emulator IPA on iOS 10 running iPhone. No jailbreak is required for this to work.

There’s been quite a bit of speculation in recent days about the possibility of Nintendo launching a SNES mini before the end of the year. Given the fact that the company introduced what turned out to be a limited edition NES miniature, it seems highly plausible that the release will happen, but that doesn’t mean you have to wait six months to get that Super Nintendo Entertainment System experience. Thankfully, you can now install the SNES4iOS emulator directly to your non-jailbroken iPhone.

If you are ready to get a new gaming experience on your iPhone, and are particularly excited about walking down memory lane with some wonderful SNES games, then you can follow the relatively simple steps below to get up and running in just a matter of minutes.

Step 1: If you have your iOS 10-powered iPhone at hand, and five minutes of spare time, then you are most definitely ready to proceed. The first part of the process is actually getting ownership of the IPA file to be installed on the device. In this instance it is the SNES4iOS IPA, which you can download directly to your machine from here (Snes4ios-1.0.ipa). If possible, use the Google Chrome browser to download as the process is more streamlined.

Step 2: With the SNES4iOS IPA in your possession, you are now going to need to actually get it onto your non-jailbroken device. Thankfully that’s actually a lot easier than it sounds. We have put together two previous guides on that topic, one using Xcode 7 or higher, and one using Cydia Impactor, with the latter being the only option available for Windows users. Follow the relevant guide before, then jump back in here for the next steps.

Step 3: Welcome back! With the IPA installed onto your device it is now time to actually tell iOS that this is from a trusted source, and that it can therefore allow it to run without issue. Launch the Settings app on the device and navigate to General > Profiles & Device Management. On some iOS versions, this option might be available at General > Profile(s) & Device Management or General > Device Management.

Step 4: Locate the profile that has been installed with the SNES4iOS app and tap on it. Select Trust and then Trust again. This is essentially the very easy method of telling iOS that we trust this installation and that it should allow the app to run without any security protocols in place.

And that is all she wrote. With the IPA installed, and the profile set to be trusted by iOS, you can now exit out of Settings, locate the SNES4iOS app, and run it as you normally would. Sit back, and enjoy those stunning SNES games on your mobile device.
