Now that iOS 10 is here and has been downloaded by millions of users across the world, there are going to be a lot of people without a jailbreak. And that means no more paid or premium apps for free on your iOS device. At least, it would have done if we didn’t have an app installer by the name of HipStore to step into the breach. HipStore [ext link] is similar to the app installers we get from Cydia, like AppSync, AppCake, and Install0us, containing a large number of paid apps, games and other content that you can download for free.

Where HipStore differs is that it doesn’t require a jailbreak to work. This means it suits those who are waiting for a new jailbreak to be released as well as those who have no interest in jailbreaking in the first place. However, Apple is not fond of allowing this type of app into their store and, as such, you won’t be able to download it in the normal way. Instead, you will need to follow the steps we outline below.
