What is AltStore?
All iOS users are aware of the fact that when it comes to hacked, modified, and tweaked apps, Apple has a strict policy. A lot many third-party iOS app installers came up for catering these tweaked apps and make them available for the users to download. However, Apple, tough as ever, unleashes its onslaught on these third-party App Stores, every now and then, invalidating their certificates.
Witnessing this scenario, Riley Testut, the brain behind the Delta Emulator, announced an alternative iOS App Store that goes by the name of AltStore, enabling him and other developers to distribute iOS apps that, in the original scenario, will never make up to the official Apple App Store by surpassing the Apple’s application review system. The amazing AltStore comes with an inbuilt Delta Emulator.

AltStore comes up with Inbuilt Delta Emulator
Unlike other third-party iOS app installers, AltStore on iOS is not dependent on enterprise certificates. Instead, it is a fully native, sandboxed iOS application that sideloads apps for you on your iPhone by tricking the device into thinking that these applications are developed by yourself only. For this, you require providing your Apple ID and password to AltStore. AltStore sends apps over WiFi to a desktop companion app, AltServer that utilizes iTunes WiFi sync to install the apps on your device.
The coolest part is that these installed apps won’t expire after 7 days as AltStore will automatically refresh them for you in the background whenever the store is on the same WiFi as AltServer.
As of now, only two apps are available on the AltStore; Delta and Clip. However, Riley Testut and other developers will be bringing more apps soon. Now, if you wish to get Delta Emulator up and running on your iPhone, you require installing AltStore on your device. Please follow the below steps for that.
