AppValley is one of the famous third party apps (App Store) to side load any iOS app that is not available in the Appstore. It has a great collection of apps, tweaked apps, modded games, etc.

Moreover, you don’t need to sign the app certificate with your apple account. Everything is pre-done and you are all set to use it. So, we can consider the AppValley as an alternative to Cydia Installer and Cydia Impactor as well.

3. TweakBox

TweakBox is my favourite tool that is very awesome at job. You can find thousands of free tweaks which are completely free, you don’t need to pay unless they are UDID Apps.

Installing any tweaked app such as Youtube++, Snapchat++, Napster++, Deezer++ is very easy. You don’t need to sign any app certificate, hit install, it’s done.

Download Updated Cydia Impactor for iOS 11

It is said to be believed that the latest version of Cydia Impactor supports iOS 11, but I don’t think so. I have tried 2 months ago on my iPhone 6s Plus with iOS 11 and it didn’t work.

Now, I have tested it with my iPhone X (I don’t have my old phone now to test it now) but not working for me.

Try it yourself and enjoy side loading apps to your iOS 11 device if it works for you. Meanwhile, you can download it from the official website.

If you have installed the software already on your device, open it, update the current version to the latest version.
