Popcorn Time bypasses App Store thanks to iOS expired certificates of companies




Popcorn-time.se has released its iOS Installer allows users without jailbreak can put the app from the illegal streaming service on their iPhone or iPad. The installer appears to work with expired certificates of companies to put apps on devices for workers.

The iOS Installer Popcorn-time.se bypasses the control of the certificates during the installation to turn your iPhone or iPad into airplane mode, so that can not connect to servers to verify the certificates, writes Wired.

The software works with a Windows computer, such as Tuesday already clearly was. The download of around 35MB is an installer for a Windows program, presumably written in Qt 5, which the app can be put on a device. Because after you install the required installation is in a separate folder, it is obvious that users also can use the iOS Installer to other apps that they have ipa files to install on the device. A version for OS X follows a few weeks, say the developers.

The developers say opposite Wired expect a cat-and-mouse game with Apple. “We deal with this in a war with Apple. But when I see what kind of work they do and what updates to the installer they work, we are certain that they are ready for any obstacle that Apple would create.”
