How to Install Cydia Extender Without Paid Apple Developer Account


Cydia Impactor is a tool to sideload iPA files onto an iPhone or iPad. In General, the SSL Verification of the sideloaded apps will be expired after 7 days. It means that the user must sign in with an apple developer account to make them work. Cydia Impactor releases version 0.9.39 in which the errors while signing .ipa files on windows is resolved. Moreover, the latest version also includes Cydia Extender and many of us do not know what exactly it is?.

What is Cydia Extender?

The apps sideloaded onto iOS devices using Cydia Impactor and a computer will expire after 7 days. Each time you need to re-sign the apps or otherwise, the apps will not work. It is not that easy to re-sign the applications once after every 7 days by connecting the iOS device to the computer as one may or many not have PC.

Cydia Extender was meant to help iOS users to auto sign and re-sign the applications once every 7 days. The app works by a built-in VPN that will automatically verify the certificate. It means that the user can do it automatically without a computer.

But it seems that the Cydia Extender must need a Paid Apple Developer Account. The Paid apple developer account may cost you around $99 per year. Check out the tweets from the developer and this is what we know about the app till date.
