We going to be dealing with two apps which are AppCake and iTransmission. You might think since we are going to go on with two apps its gonna be difficult. No, it isn’t difficult and it’s the best torrenting app for iOS and probably the best torrenting method for iOS. AppCake which is the first app will be used once for its the app we gonna use to download iTransmission which in this case is our torrenting app for iOS.
We will proceed in two different steps; the first indicating how we will Download and Install AppCake on our iOS device and the second showing how to install iTransmission using the IPA file we will get from a website. This tutorial on torrenting on iOS will be carried out on an iPad.


Step I: Downloading AppCake.

  • Open your safari browser and go to Iphonecake
  • Once you’re there, you click on the three dashes on the top right corner and select AppCake iOS App as in below screenshot

  • Now you will get a next page with two options: that is to Install AppCake and I have jailbreak, just take the first option which is INSTALL APPCAKE as in below screenshot.

  • Once you click on INSTALL APPCAKE, you will be prompted and asked to download a PROFILE which you should autorise the download. Once the profile downloaded, you will need to OPEN SETTINGS—>PROFILE DOWNLOADED and install the profile. If you don’t find the profile in the settings, GOTO GENERAL SETTINGS—>PROFILE & MANAGEMENT and you will find it there then you install.
  • Once installed, that wouldn’t be over, you will need to Trust AppCake in settings still because if the app isn’t trusted, you wouldn’t be able to launch and use it. Go to settings and switch to general settings. There, you select DEVICE MANAGEMENT and you will see a name as this “Quinjiang Group Co., Ltd” and in the next screen you trust the app. See screenshot below.

We started by stating the advantages of torrenting for with them we don’t have to buy anything as we got the file already at hand and now the difficulty was to leech these torrent files on ios without jailbreaking our ios devices since there is no torrent app found on the AppStore and we all assumed that what isn’t found on the AppStore will need a device jailbreak before installation. But, this tutorial proved that wrong and showed that torrents can be downloaded on ios without jailbreaking. In step I, we talked on installing AppCake will will serve as a receiver or host for the installation of iTransmission IPA which is actually the app used to download torrent files on ios and was shown in step two. So guys in terms of speed and stability of best torrent downloaders for iPhone, iPad and iPod, for me, iTransmission is the best torrent downloading app for ios i can advise you to use.
