Kodi can be sideloaded to any iOS device running the latest firmware, although the process is definitely not for the faint of heart. Sideloading Kodi for iOS is somewhat difficult if you aren’t comfortable with computers. While this method is still considered experimental, it is a ray of light for those who do not wish to jailbreak their Apple iOS devices for security reasons. In about ten fifteen minutes, you should have Kodi for iOS working.
In order to proceed, you’ll need to signup for an Apple Developer account. The good news is you can get an Apple Developer account for free, the bad news is that with the free account you’ll need to reinstall Kodi every seven days. In about ten fifteen minutes, you should have Kodi for iOS working. This method will allow you to install Kodi for iOS to your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch device.
Download Kodi for iOS
Download Cydia Impactor
Mac Users: Please note that if your computer says it can’t open apps from unknown developers, you should navigate to your computer’s System Preferences menu, then click on the Security & Privacy icon, and finally press the Open Anyway button.
Step 1: Login to the Apple Developer Member Center with your existing Apple ID (or create a new one) in order to activate developer privileges.
Please Note: If you don’t upgrade to a paid Apple Developer account beforehand, you’ll have to reinstall Kodi once every seven days!
Step 2: Connect your iPad, iPhone or iPod Touch to your computer. If you see that iTunes has started, you’ll want to close it. You’ll also want to press the Trust button on your iOS device if prompted.
Step 3: Launch the Cydia Impactor application and verify that your iOS device is detected.
Windows Users: Do not use the Run as Administrator function!
Step 4: Unzip the Kodi IPA ZIP File that you just downloaded, then drag the the IPA file into the Cydia Impactor window.
Step 5: Input your Apple ID email address when prompted, then press the OK button.
Step 6: Wait a few minutes for Kodi to install to your iOS device.
Step 7: Once you see the Kodi icon on your iOS device, you can unplug it from your computer. We’re almost there.
Step 8: Navigate to the Settings menu, followed by the General tab, and then the Profiles and Device Management menu at the bottom.
Step 9: Find the Apple ID that you just used for this installation, then click the Trust button.
Step 10: You’re done! You may now launch the Kodi app for the first time on your iPad, iPhone or iPod Touch device.
Keep in mind that if you aren’t using an Apple ID that’s associated with a paid Apple Developer account, you’ll need to reinstall Kodi once every seven days, not exactly ideal but probably safer than jailbreaking your iPhone at least.
