When people jailbreak, they do it to get more features on their iOS devices along with other functions that Apple doesn’t allow. One of the apps you could download is called iFile, an app that gives you unfettered access to the File System on your iPhone or iPad but with no jailbreak available, apps like iFile are no longer available. Or at least they weren’t until now. There is a new way of getting some jailbreak apps onto your iOS 9 device without the need to jailbreak and, of course, this will also suit those who don’t want to jailbreak, now or in the future.

How to Download iFile on iOS 9 :
To do this, we are going to use a tool by the name of Cydia Impactor to side load the app onto your iOS 9 device so you will also need an Apple ID and a Mac or Windows computer. Follow the steps carefully to get iFile onto your iOS 9 device without a jailbreak :
- First, download the iFile .ipa file
- Next download Cydia Impactor [ext link] onto your computer
- When you have these two on your computer you can move on to the process of using Cydia Impactor to side-load iFile on your iOS 9 device. You can find the full step by step guide on how to do this at the provided link on Step 2 .
- Once you have side-loaded iFile onto your iOS device, there is a very good chance that it will not work. To get it to work you have to trust the iFile certificate so open your Settings app
- Navigate to General and then tap on Profiles & Device Management
- A list of certificates will appear so find the one for iFile and tap on it
- Tap Trust and then Trust again
- Now you can tap the iFile icon and it will work
You will not get the full version of iFile that you would get on a jailbroken device simply because you do not have root access, that only comes through a jailbreak. You will have some access to files and directories and will be able to write to some files but this will be limited.
