Apple is against running emulator software on any of its devices for the simple reason that it often leads to the pirating of copyrighted game ROMs, which is illegal. You might have noticed that the popular Gameboy emulator available for Android devices isn’t available for iPhone users, but this doesn’t mean you can’t get in on the action, or that you’ll have to Jailbreak your device, leaving it open to potential security issues.

Android features emulator software that allows you to play NES, SNES, Gameboy Advance, DS and even PlayStation games on your mobile devices. But this doesn’t mean that Gameboy games will remain the reserve of twelve year olds from the early ‘00s and anyone with an Android device now. To start enjoying all your favourite Gameboy Advance games on your iPhone6 and iPhone6 Plus now, just download the Gameboy Advance emulator now. Here’s a quick guide to how.


  1. Go to ‘Settings’
  2. Go to ‘General’
  3. Go to ‘Date and Time’
  4. Change the date on your phone back by anything between a day and two years.
  5. Go the official GBA4iOS website through your phones Safari
  6. Tap on Download and follow the onscreen instructions

Following this process will lead to a GBA4iOS icon appearing your home screen, just like any other app. Once you’ve downloaded the emulator, you can begin to find games. We don’t cover that here, because it is illegal. There are plenty of other sources on the web to give you all the instructions you need on how to download games, but ensure it is a reputable source before clicking ‘Download’.
