How to Download GBA4iOS Emulator

Classic games such as “Pokemon,” “Mario,” and “Day of the Tentacle” still have a massive fan following. Unfortunately, people who use iOS devices can’t enjoy these classics because Apple’s App Store does not support any of these games, nor does it support emulator apps.

Although Apple doesn’t support any game format other than iOS, and certainly won’t support game emulator apps, there are ways of getting your favorite retro games onto your iPhone or iPad. For fans of the Gameboy range of consoles, we have an app called GBA4iOS.

What is GBA4iOS?

Well, the GBA4iOS stands for Gameboy Advance Emulator, and it enables you to download all Gameboy Advance games on your apple device. Even though the installation process involves some form of a workaround, it is not so complicated.

Yes. The developer is well-respected in the iOS community and takes pride in his work.
