tvOS 9.2 Update Makes Apple TV an Even Better Set-Top Box

There are some great features coming for the Apple TV with its next tvOS 9.2 update, making your TV experience simpler than before.

One of the best things coming from this update is that you’ll be able to pair a Bluetooth keyboard to the new Apple TV, which will be much simpler than using the Apple TV remote: typing in any sort of text, like passwords and TV/movie titles, will be so much easier. Considering how clunky the remote is when typing in text, we’re actually quite surprised this feature wasn’t added in earlier.

Use GBA4iOS to Play Gameboy Games on Your iPhone (iOS 10 Ready)

gba4ios-on-iphone

Going right back to the beginning of jailbreaking days, probably the main reason for hacking an iPhone was so that users could play games via emulators, like NDS, GBA, or PS games. GBA4iOS is one of the most popular emulators in recent years because it allows iPhone users to play Game Boy Advance games on their mobile devices. In addition, GBA4iOS uses Apple’s own certificates to allow users to install the emulator – it doesn’t need a jailbroken device in order to work.

We know that Apple closes these loopholes quite quickly by revoking the certificate that’s used, but now we have a new version of GBA4iOS available. With the return of emulator GBA4iOS last week you shouldn’t have any problems with iOS 10 or below without having to jailbreak your iPhone.

This means that, once again you’ll be able to use GBA4iOS to play Gameboy games, including romhacks, on your iPhone. Very cool, hey!

But, as always with GBA4iOS, Apple are constantly releasing updates that will render the emulator useless, so this can’t last forever.

Download and Install ROMs for GBA4iOS

GBA4iOS 2.1 works with iOS 8.1 to iOS 9.0, 9.1, 9.2.1, 9.3, 10.0 and hopefully above. In order to put GBA4iOS 2.1 through its paces you’ll need to install it and get your ROMs into it, because this emulator has a lot more to offer. Here are our instructions for installing the emulator :

  1. On your iPhone, open Safari then navigate to iemulators.com/gba4ios;
  2. Tap the GBA4iOS 2.1 button then hit “Install”;
  3. When you receive the pop-up requesting confirmation, tap “Install” again;
  4. You’ll have a new GBA4iOS icon on your home screen once the installation is complete. If you’re using iOS 10, go to Settings – General – Profiles: select the certificate that starts with ‘CMN..’, then on the following screen hit the Trust option.

Please Note: If you’re using an older version of iOS you simply launch the app from the Home screen, and when you get the confirmation pop-up simply hit “Trust“.

Now you have your emulator installed and ready to use, so get some ROMs for your favorite Game Boy Advance games (they’re easily found on the web). Just open GBA4iOS app on your iPhone and tap on the Search icon; go to Google’s homepage where you can search and download GBA ROMs directly on your device.

Now that you’ve successfully installed GBA4iOS on iOS 10 you need some GBA ROMs to play Gameboy games. Not only can you download your favorite ROMs within the application, you can also sync them with Dropbox.

Now that the ROMs have been downloaded, you need to enable DropBox Sync: this saves the ROMs to your DropBox account so that you’ll be able to use them on all your devices.

  • First of all you need to install DropBox on your device. In order to activate DropBox Sync, go to Settings within the application;
  • Next, scroll down and locate the “DropBox Sync” option;
  • By default this will be turned off, so you should enable this and grant the necessary permissions. And to ensure that you’ll never lose any data, you can also sync Saved Game Data.
