How to get AltStore on iOS 16?

If you want to track third-party app stores for iPhone, chances are you know about AltStore and how popular it is.

But until now, the platform was not compatible with iOS 16, which means you had to find alternative ways to download the apps to use them. Recent updates suggest that AltStore is finally compatible with iOS 16 and iPadOS 16.

So if you were pushing to update your iPhone because you were not sure whether AltStore would be functional in the latest operating system or not, now you can worry easily.

This article covers everything you need to know about AltStore on iOS 16 and how to install and use it.

What factors should you ensure before getting AltStore on iOS 16?

If you are downloading AltStore on your iPhone for the first time, make sure your iPhone is updated to the latest version first.

This is crucial especially if you want to run AltStore on your device without glitches and buffers. That said, there are two ways you can get AltStore on your iOS 16. For your convenience, we have sorted them into separate steps.

Directly from an iOS device

If your iPhone is not updated to the latest iOS 16, this is the method you can go for. It is an easier and faster method, so follow the mentioned steps:

  1. Open AltStore on your iOS device
  2. Navigate to My Apps in your iPhone settings and check if an Update button is available.
  3. Tap the Update button to update the app

Note: When updating the app, make sure your iPhone is connected to a computer.

Once the update process is complete, refresh the sideloaded apps that are running in the background. If you notice that they are performing normally, you are good to go. Once the update is complete, your AltStore app will also be able to run on your iOS 16 device.

Reinstall AltStore from the computer

If the first update option doesn’t work on your iPhone, try this method. It’s a bit complicated and tedious, so beware.

Here are the steps you need to follow:

  1. Run AltServer on your computer
  2. Install all available app updates
  3. Next, go install AltStore on your iOS device
  4. Open AltStore after the successful installation
  5. To ensure smoother functions, you should trust the untrusted developer option
  6. Once you’re done, refresh the sideloaded apps and you’re good to go.

If you follow the steps mentioned, it should be no problem at all to get AltStore in your iOS 16 updated iPhone. However, you may encounter some errors, which we suggest you resolve with troubleshooting methods.

Sometimes authentication issues can prevent the app from performing normally. What you can do in that case is to make sure that you carefully review and cross-check the settings. Also, if the apps fail to perform during the refresh process, that’s another major flaw.
