There is a way to get a limited version of iFile onto your iPhone or iPad without having to install a jailbreak first. It involves the use of a tool called Cydia Impactor and the need to download the .ipa file of the app. It is a simple method provided you follow the instructions properly and we will give you a link to that later. First, not everyone knows what an ipa file is.
What is an .ipa File ?
IPA files are Apple OS files with the file extension .ipa. They are somewhat similar to zip files, holding the data that is needed to make an iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch app. All types of app, be they games, media, social networking, or any other, require a .ipa file in order to work, as do all jailbreak apps and regardless of the type of app, the .ipa structure is identical, containing a payload file with all the app data, a JPEG or PNG file for the icon and a .plist file with all the app and developer information in it.
When you download one of these apps using iTunes, the .ipa file will be stored on your Mac or PC. This means that, irrespective of whether the app is a genuine app store one or a jailbreak app, to download the .ipa file you need to use a valid Apple ID. This is so that Cydia Impactor can sign the certificate that goes with the app, allowing you to use it.
