If you are following the release of Popcorn Time on iPhone and iPad, then you will know by now this app needs a jailbreak officially. We heard at the start of October that a release date was imminent, and then the developers were waiting for a certificate to allow Popcorn Time to be installed without a jailbreak. This never happened, which led to a lot of people not wanting to download Popcorn Time thanks to a jailbreak being needed.
We have since found a video on YouTube detailing how to install Popcorn Time on an iPhone 5S, or the models like iPhone 6 Plus, and iPads without the need to jailbreak. You can see the said video below this article revealing exactly how to install the app, and again this will be favored by many that hate the idea of a jailbreak.
The video author explains you can only install Popcorn Time on devices running up to iOS 8.0.2, although from iOS 8 only as well. It’s worth noting at the time of writing, there is no iOS 8.0.3 update and iOS 8.1 is in beta right now.
Would you install the Popcorn Time app for free movie streaming on your iPhone or iPad? If not, would this be due to you backing the moral reasons and wanting to pay for movies/TV shows. We’ll leave our readers to debate why Time for Popcorn gets a lot of coverage on sites like Tech Crunch, and of course how comes the powers that be haven’t stopped the app yet like they did with Cartoon HD.
