The Gameboy was the most popular console ever released, and, for a long time, using Cydia, we could play our favorite GBA games on our iOS devices. Developer Riley Testut came up with an emulator app called GBA4iOS that could be used outside of Cydia, using an iOS flaw, but, as expected, it didn’t take long or Apple to patch that flaw.

VPN for GBA4iOS Users:


iPhone emulators for iOS devices like GBA4iOS are common these days, but that doesn’t mean Apple doesn’t want you using it. They regularly revoke unofficial apps, leaving you with a broken emulator app unless you reinstall it again from the links above. By installing a VPN on your device, you can protect the certificates and your browsing history, leaving you free to use whatever you want on your device.

This GBA Emulator is perfectly safe to use because the developers put the time and effort into making it so. Putting the emulator app through a rigorous testing cycle every step of the way through its Reddit beta user community, now that it is released, they keep a very close eye on it; should any problems arise, they fix them straight away.

  1. Downloads aren’t downloading and going grey how long until you can get your apps up and running again? How long does it usually take because this started yesterday and I really want to play the games

  2. I used the gba4ios Emulator from the TweakBox Store. Now, i cant Download it anymore so i tried yours (Download link 1).
    It works great but i cant load/sync with my Dropbox Pokemon Data. Gba4ios11 Said, that the sync was complete but i am just able to Start a new Game and i cant use the load state from the gba4ios before. Is there any way to sync my Game data?

  3. Hey, I’ve been trying to download GBA4iOS for awhile now and your link is the only one that works. My only problem is that when GBA4iOS gets revoked, I come back here and it says “Cannot Connect to”. I would appreciate if you helped me with this. Thank you!
