iTransmission remain as one of the best torrent clients for iPhone and iPad until today.
Torrent apps are just like gaming emulators. They’re not allowed in the App Store due to conflict with Apple guidelines. However, I have seen a few that safely landed through the approval process.
In this video I am going to show you How To Download Torrent Files On iPhone or iPad. ( iPhone 5, 5S, 6, 6S, 7, 7 Plus, 8, 8 Plus, X, XR, XS ).Apple has bann. ITransmission is a native, fully-featured BitTorrent client for iPhone and iPad. It shares the backend with the popular torrent client for Mac of the same name. Some of the prominent features of iTransmission include: Adding torrent tasks via magnet or.torrent file (Safari magnet links supported).
Unfortunately, they all come and go like lighting, except for iTransmission. Not to mention that you can easily install this app right on your iOS devices, even if it’s not jailbroken.
What set iTransmission apart from its competitions is the fact that this app uses the same backend as the native BitTorrent client many people use on their Mac computers.
What does that tell us? The app is secure, robust, and easy to use.
Let’s get started:
For jailbroken iPhone or iPad, all you have to do is go to Cydia > Search and type in the name of this torrent client. The tweak is available within the default repository so it should popup as a search result. Once you see it, choose Install and Respring.
The iTransmission app should now appear on your home screen. Opening the application will let you download torrents on your iOS device.
The above solution is easy, right? It nearly didn’t require anything at all except for your time. But this method is a bit tricky and will require you to have a Mac computer, Xcode installed, and some knowledge of the software.
After the last step, iTransmission 4 should be installed on your iPhone now. Unlock the device and tap on the app’s icon.
Uh oh, you can’t open the app huh? Don’t worry, we wrote a tutorial on how to fix the Untrusted developer issue a few weeks ago.
This is a newer version of the previous package that we discussed earlier.
It’s now available as a jailbreak tweak instead of side-loaded apps that you can download on both jailbroken and non-jailbroken devices.
iTransmission 5 comes with some new features and enhancements that many people have been requesting. While using the previous version which is the iTransmission 4, I noticed that my battery was running out quickly.
For those of you who don’t know or never heard of iTransmission. It’s a torrent client for iOS device that allows you to download torrent files of onto your iPhone and iPad.
The app is relatively easy to use, the options are easy to configure, and a clean interface that lets you browse around without any hesitation.
After you’ve successfully installed it, the tweak should sit somewhere on your Springboard. Tap on the app’s icon to open iTransmission. In it, there are a built-in browser and a Settings page where you can adjust the app based on your liking.
One of the many features that I’m really into is called Insomnia. When this option is enabled, iTransmission will never disconnect from the Wi-Fi, thus avoiding file interruption. It does consume more power so be sure to use a charger for your iPhone.
That’s enough. This tweak is now out there on Cydia’s BigBoss repo for free.
The latest version of iTransmission (5.4) is also available as a .IPA file. Which means you can use Cydia Impactor on either Windows or Mac to sideload it onto your non-jailbroken iPhone and iPad.
The only issue is that users who use this method will have to re-do the process every seven days to avoid the app crashes upon opening due to certificate expiration.
Good news everyone! There is now a way to download torrent files on iPhone and iPad without a Jailbreak and the need to risk your i-device warranty.
Apple does not like the concept of BitTorrent and getting any app to download your torrent files is pretty difficult - Impossible in fact. However, you can still use your web browser and that's exactly where Bitport.io comes in.
