MovieBox is an iOS app which has become very popular with those who want free access to movies and TV shows. It acts as a portal much like the ShowBox app on Android and now requires no jailbreak to work. Previously, it only worked on jailbroken devices, specifically, iOS 9.3.3 ones. However, when Apple patched the vulnerabilities for that firmware, it stopped working.

Downloading MovieBox

Unlike the majority of apps, this one cannot be found on Apple’s App Store because it contravenes many of its guidelines, meaning that it’s not as simple to get as tapping “Install.” Instead, the process can be a little convoluted, especially if you’ve not installed certificates onto your iPhone or iPad before. One of these convoluted processes you could encounter is when trying to run MovieBox. You could come across the message “Untrusted Enterprise Developer,” which means that the app comes from an unknown source.

However, there’s nothing to be concerned about. Just follow the instructions below, and you’ll soon be running the app.
