Whenever a new firmware is released, we hold on to the hope that a jailbreak will follow it soon after. In recent years we have come to expect one within a few weeks of a major firmware being released and, with iOS 10 now out, we can only hope that Taig or Pangu come through with a new utility sooner rather than later. For those who have updated to iOS 10, the chance to jailbreak has gone until a new one is released and that means no more free access to paid apps and games.

Or does it? HipStore is an app installer, an alternative to getting paid content on your iOS device without having to jailbreak. Normally, you would have had to install Cydia and then download jailbreak app installers like Install0us, AppCake, and AppSync to get this content but HipStore is available for everyone to download onto their iOS devices.

You will need to follow our step by step guide below on downloading HipStore onto your iOS device because it isn’t something you can get from the app store. As well as containing hundreds of thousands of different apps and games, HipStore is also available in a number of languages. That puts it above other apps of this type that can only be downloaded in Chinese, thus limiting the size of their audience.

- iPhone 4s, 5, 5C, 5S, 6, 6 Plus, 6S, 6S Plus, SE, 7, 7 Plus
