The Pangu iOS 10.3.1 jailbreak isn’t coming, and you know it. More than being a question of whether or not Pangu is right or wrong about withholding the iPhone 7 jailbreak tool, it’s a question of what jailbreak enthusiasts can do right now on iPhone 7 devices running iOS 10.x.x. And it’s a question of what tweaked apps you an still get whether or not your phone is jailbroken. It also works with most older iOS versions on non-jailbroken iPhones and iPads.
Today, we’re going to show you how to sideload Instagram++ on any iPhone running any version of iOS 10 – right from iOS 10 through iOS 10.3.2, which is the latest version as of today. iOS 10.3.3 is in developer beta, and you can still get the tweaked Instagram++ app for that, but since the OS itself won’t be stable right now, we don’t recommend it.
The best part: you don’t need a Pangu iOS 10.3.1 jailbreak or any other jailbreak for this to work. This method works on all non-jailbroken as well as jailbroken devices.

And now, on with the show.
How to Sideload Instagram++ on iPhones Running iOS 10.x.x
Preparing to Sideload Instagram++ (Instagram Plus Plus) – No Pangu iOS 10.3.1 Jailbreak Required – No Jailbreak Required Whatsoever!
First, you’ll need to download a copy of the Instagram++ IPA file, which you can store on your PC or Mac until you need it. You can download it here (opens in a new tab.)
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 the latest iTunes here from Apple.
Now that the basic preparation is done, you can start the sideloading process.
How to Sideload Instagram++ to your iOS 10.x.x iPhone
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 10.3.1 or higher iPhone 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 Instagram++ that you downloaded just now? 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 Instagram++ to your iOS 10.3.1 iPhone. Leave it for a few minutes, until the process is complete.
Seventh, DO NOT LAUNCH the Instagram++ app from the Home Screen even though you’ll see it there. Instead, go to Settings –> General –> Profiles. and look for the app profile.
Eighth, tap on the profile and then Trust the Certificate.
Ninth, enjoy the new Instagram++ experience whenever you want it. Have fun playing around with it and see what you can do, when compared to the regular “boring” version of Instagram.
Tenth, tell us about your experience, or give our readers some expert advice in the comments section. Thousands of people could benefit from your expertise and experience.
The Pangu iOS 10.3.1 jailbreak may never come, and we might never see another jailbreak from Pangu Team. But we can get sideloading with tweaked versions of some of the most popular apps out there.
