iFile is a full-featured file manager for iPhone and iPad that allows you to browse the entire iOS file system. It supports a wide range of file types, including images, plists, documents, videos, and much more.

With iFile, you can view any file that you wish as well as edit, move, copy, rename, or even delete them. One of the main reasons of having iFile is that you can download and save files from the web using iFile. These files will be stored within the app and you can manage them as you wish.

In this guide, we’ll show you how to download and install iFile IPA on iPhone or iPad without having to jailbreak.

How to Download and Install iFile IPA on iPhone or iPad

Step 1: Download the iFile IPA from here and Cydia Impactor from here.

Step 2: Connect your iPhone or iPad to your computer via USB.

Step 3: Open Cydia Impactor.

Step 4: Drag and drop the iFile IPA onto Cydia Impactor.

Step 5: You’ll be asked to enter your Apple ID and password. This is sent to Apple to generate a signing certificate.

Step 6: Cydia Impactor will begin installing iFile onto your device. Once done, you should see the app’s icon on your Home screen.

Step 7: Before opening iFile, go to Settings > General > Profiles (or ‘Device Management’).

Step 8: Open the profile labelled with your Apple ID, and then tap on the Trust button.

That’s it. You can now use iFile to browse your device’s file system and view any file that you wish. Make sure that you don’t alter the system files to avoid bricking your device.

With this method, you have to re-install the app every 7 days. This is because the app is signed with a free certificate that lasts for 7 days. After this period, iFile will crash and you will have to re-sign the certificate by reinstalling the app via Cydia Impactor. If you use a developer Apple ID, the certificate will last for one year.
