For so many of us, Cydia is out of reach now and has been for some time. The few updates we have seen have been directed at just a handful of devices, with the majority of the community left with no option but to stay with the stock iOS. Things have changed somewhat, and a number of third-party apps have been released and one that is proving very popular is an emulator app called GBA4iOS [ext link], giving us back part of what we used to get from Cydia.

What is GBA4iOS ?

GBA4iOS is one of the top emulators, offering a console experience second to none on your iOS device. Until Apple patched the exploit he was using with iOS 8, Riley Testut, the developer of GBA4iOS could offer his emulator legitimately through the iOS app store but, once that exploit was patched, he had to move it to Cydia [ext link]. Now you don’t need a jailbreak to use GBA4iOS, leaving it wide open for anyone to use.

With GBA4iOS you can choose from thousands of Gameboy, Gameboy Color, and Gameboy Advance games to play on your iPhone or iPad and, because the updated version of GBA4iOS is integrated in part with the iOS SDK tools, you get to experience some of the best features available in an emulator.
