How to Sideload Facebook++ on iPhones and iPads running iOS 10.3
First, you’ll need to download a copy of the Facebook++ IPA file, which you can store on your PC until you need it. You can download it here.
Next, you will need the Cydia Impactor, so download the right version for your system. You can view the download options here.
Finally, you will need the latest version of iTunes, and you can get it here from Apple.
Now that the basic preparation is done, you can start the sideloading process.
Sideload Facebook++ on iOS 10.3 iPhones and iPads – No iOS 10.3 Jailbreak Required
Before you start, remember to do the following steps one at a time. Don’t rush, and if there are any issues, DO NOT PROCEED. It’s your device and your decision to sideload this software, so please keep that in mind. If there’s any doubt at all, don’t do it.
The first thing to do is connect your iOS 10.3 device to your computer using a USB cable.
Second, find the Cydia Impactor file that you downloaded earlier and run it.
Third, after connecting your device and running Cydia Impactor, look for a dropdown menu that contains the name of your device. Select it.
Fourth, remember that IPA file for Facebook++ that you downloaded earlier? Drag that and drop it into the Cydia Impactor interface.
The Fifth one is an important step. You will need an Apple ID to proceed. At this point you have two choices. The free ID can be obtained from id.apple.com, where you need to look for an App-Specific Password. If you already have a paid ID you can use that to avoid resigning the app’s certificate every seven days.
Sixth, after you enter the paid or free ID, Cydia will start sideloading Facebook++ to your iOS 10.3 iPhone or iPad. Leave it for a few minutes, until the process is complete.
Seventh, DO NOT LAUNCH Facebook++ from the Home Screen at this point, even though you’ll see it there. Instead, go to Settings –> General –> Profiles. and look for the app’s profile.
Eighth, tap on the profile and then Trust the Certificate.
Ninth, enjoy the many tweaks that Facebook++ brings to your iOS 10.3 device.
