The Cydia Impactor is a very popular GUI tool for installing apps on iPhones and Android phones. Not only the Cydia Impactor is popular for sideloading IPA files, but its Android APK functionality is also worth using as well.

At first, the Cydia Impactor is built for Windows, Mac, and Linux platforms. It’s a very light tool. It comes as a standalone package. You don’t have to install the tool. All you need is its package and you launch the Impactor through its exe file.

Once you have the impactor up and running, you see a small window showing two tabs and a few options in its toolbar.

Users have to connect their device and then select the device in impactor. After that, they can select what operation they want to perform.

To install IPA files on iPhone or APK files on Android, you simply drag an APK/IPA file and drop it onto the Cydia Impactor. The Impactor then automatically installs that file. The installed file can be found on your phone.

For those of you who are unsure of when to use Cydia Impactor, let me explain a few suitable scenarios.

There are thousands of Android and iOS applications which are unable to make it to the play store or the App Store. Such applications are available on different platforms independently. You can grab the installation package of those apps and tend to the manual installation.

For Android APK files, the most common method is to install them directly on your phone through the File Manager. However, iOS doesn’t allow direct installation or File Manager access. So, for the iOS, your only manual method is either Cydia Impactor or the resource file webpage.

Another great feature of the Cydia Impactor is that it brings the universal ADB and Fastboot drivers. In case you are unable to connect your device, you can check for its driver through the impactor. 

To make Impactor compatible with iPhone/iPad, you must have the latest version of iTunes installed on the computer.

That was all about the Cydia Impactor. You can now download Cydia Impactor for Windows, Mac, and Linux from below. The guide to using Cydia Impactor is also attached.
