Does Installing GBA4iOS Void Warranty?
Not at all. This GBA Emulator app has been developed in a way that makes it legitimate to use because it doesn’t hack into the iOS and doesn’t contravene any security protocols in place on the iOS firmware. If you do need to return your device to an Apple Store for any reason and you are not quite sure, you can easily delete the app and install it again ( from the steps above ) at a later date.
