Step-By-Step Guide To Install Kodi 17 On iPhone Or iPad

The public version of Kodi 17 ‘Krypton’ was released just a few days ago. The open-source, cross-platform multimedia software can be used to play live TV, music, videos, games, and radio content from a single interface. Though it’s pretty easy to install Kodi on Windows, Android, macOS, and Linux, installing the app on iOS devices is not all that straightforward.

You’ll need these things before you begin

Installing Kodi on jailbroken iPhones or iPads isn’t difficult. But what if you want to install the media center tool without jailbreaking your iOS device? Fortunately, Apple allows users to sideload apps to iPhones and iPads using Xcode. Before you can proceed with sideloading Kodi 17 on your device, here’s five things that you will need:

  • A Mac running OS X 10.9 or higher. You are out of luck if you don’t have a Mac. The process doesn’t work with Windows
  • Xcode 7 or later. If you don’t already have it, you can download it for free from the Mac App Store
  • A tool called iOS App Signer. You can download it for free using this link
  • Kodi 17 .deb file. Download it from here for iOS
  • An active Apple Developer account. If you have a free developer account, you’ll have to re-sideload Kodi every seven days. If you have paid $99 for the full Apple developer program, the sideloaded apps last one year. Go here to create a free developer account, and here to create the paid one

How to sideload Kodi 17 on your iOS 10 device

  • Plug your iPhone or iPad into Mac via USB
  • Launch Xcode and click on Create a new Xcode project
  • Make sure that on the left panel, Application is highlighted under iOS
  • Click on Single View Application and hit Next
  • In the new dialog box, enter the Product Name (Kodi or anything you want to) and an Organization Identifier. Make sure that your organization identifier is unique
  • The other fields should already be filled in. You can leave them as they are. Hit the Next button
  • Now choose a location to save your Git repository, and click on Create
  • You may see an error message in the middle of the Xcode screen. Just hit the Fix Issue button and then Add
  • Sign in using your Apple ID and password
  • Now you’ll get a prompt saying To fix this issue, select a Development Team to use for provisioning. Simply select your Apple ID from the drop-down box, and click Choose
  • Xcode may take a while to resolve the issue. The Code signing warning would disappear when everything is fixed
  • Launch the iOS App Signer that you downloaded earlier. You want the Kodi deb file in the Input File area. So, click Browse next to Input File to locate the file on your computer and click Open
  • In Signing Certificate, select your Apple ID and in Provisioning Profile, select the profile with your Organization Identifier
  • Click Start in the iOS App Signer app
  • Select a name and a destination folder to save your output file
  • Now go back to Xcode and select Window > Devices from the top menu bar
  • In the left pane, click on your connected iOS device
  • Next, click on the small “+” button at the bottom of the right-hand panel. Don’t click on the “+” sign in the left pane
  • Now locate and select the .IPA file that iOS App Signer saved on your computer
  • For a short while, Xcode will show your device as busy while it installs the Kodi 17 IPA to your iPhone or iPad
  • Unplug and unlock your iOS handset. You have to approve yourself as a developer. Go to Settings > General > Device Management.
  • You’ll find the Kodi 17 listed with an Unverified warning. Tap on the entry under Developer App and tap on Trust, then tap Trust again

Now you should be able to enjoy the latest Kodi 17 on your iPhone or iPad.
