Why should Sideloadly as a Cydia Impactor alternative?

As we know, the Cydia Impactor tool is not working properly. It needs a paid Apple developer account to run it. But Sideloadly works with both Paid & free developer accounts. Also, it has released a few Cydia impactor alternatives. But almost all Cydia Impactor alternatives are working on macOS only. That’s why Sideloadly is the best Cydia impactor alternative because it works on both Windows & MacOS.

If you create a dummy Apple ID, you need to sign in an apple device with the dummy apple ID. When you’re signed in, keep that device connected to the internet and upon installing an app with Sideloadly, the device will be sent the 2FA verification code as a popup. Authorize the access, input the code into Sideloadly and it should work. Then, you can log out of the dummy ID on the device. If you keep the ID details stored in Sideloadly it should work without the error.

Disadvantage of Sideloadly

There are few disadvantages with Sideloadly. Actually it happens because we use a free Apple developer account. It has some limitations when you are using a free developer account. It may cause the following issues.

  • Sideloaded apps revoked

Normally, Apple allows apps to function only for 7 days which are sideloaded using a free Apple developer account. But you can sideload the same app using sideloadly with the same Apple ID. You should back up your progress. However, paid Apple accounts  allow you to keep going through this process up to 1 year.

  • Can not sideload many apps

You can not sideload many apps like iOS 7 – iOS 9. Now you can only have 3 sideloaded apps installed on iOS 10 – iOS 14 devices with a free developer account. However, you can bypass those limitations by creating a new Apple ID. But the paid Apple Developer Account does not have limitations.
