In addition to acting as a store, AltStore also allows you to sideload apps (IPA files) that you've downloaded from the web. AltStore works by setting up a server on your Mac or Windows 10 PC, so make sure you have access to a computer before you begin.

Altstore is an AppStore that makes the installation and self-signing of the unofficial apps and game emulators possible. This app does not require any jailbreaks. It can be downloaded on Mac OSX and Windows. Unlike other similar apps, it does not needs any enterprise developer certificates. It is an IPA installer that permits the installation of the files that are .ipa in nature.
Unc0ver is one of the top downloaded apps on the Altstore.
If you happen to use a PC that is windows based, downloading iTunes from the official Apple website is a must.
Below is the stepwise journey to download the app:
Here are the steps to use the Altstore:
Here are the advantages and disadvantages of the Altstore App:
Apple allows only those who have a valid Apple ID to install apps that have been developed by them into their iOs devices for testing. Using the Apple ID ensures that Altstore can communicate with the servers of Apple and do whatever is needed to install the apps on your device.
This is because the Apple ID you use is free. Those who use the paid accounts, which comes at the cost of around 99 dollars per year will have the privilege of the apps not expiring within seven days. Hence, Altstore makes frequent attempts to refresh all the apps. It is also possible to do manual app refreshes from the Altstore.
Yes, you need to make sure that the Altstore is running at the time of installing or refreshing the apps. The best option is rather to keep Altstore running automatically in the background.
Semi-untethered jailbreaks require the use of a sideloaded app to jailbreak. Apps sideloaded with a regular Apple ID will expire after 7 days or 365 days with a Developer Apple ID. After that period, you will no longer be able to open that app to re-jailbreak.
AltDeploy has not been optimized for newer versions of macOS. You may experience incompatibility issues.
