iOS 8

It used to be that, to enjoy playing the old-style blocky retro games that we played on our game consoles many years ago, we would have to jailbreak our devices and download emulators to get the games onto our iPhone or iPad. For those of you that are still on iOS 8, have not got a jailbreak on your device and either do not want or can’t upgrade to iOS 9, we have a solution for you.

A new web app called Emu4iOS has been released to help us download these emulators onto our iOS 8 devices without having to install a jailbreak and go into Cydia first. Emu4iOS will give you access to some of the most popular games emulators in existence, including:

  • GBA4iOS
  • SNES4iOS
  • NDS4iOS
