RetroArch is an easy app to use with a user-friendly interface that offers access to your game collection in an ordered manner. It works on multiple platforms and, as soon as you connect a common joypad to your device, it will be automatically recognized and configured. This provides you with a console experience right there on your iPhone or iPad. If that weren’t enough, you can also record any of your gaming sessions and enjoy new programs as they get added to RetroArch’s library on a regular basis. This emulator is free to use and works on all iOS devices.

How to Download RetroArch:

You won’t find this iOS console emulator in the iOS App Store because it isn’t the kind of app that Apple approves of. You can, however, get it by downloading the TweakBox app installer and we’re going to show you how to do that. Tap to download directly.

Both RetroArch and Libretro are the ideal programs for creating your own emulators, games, and even multimedia programs.

Note: RetroArch is what is known as ‘multi-versatile”. For you to do anything with it, you will require modular programs known as cores, and these do NOT come with the app. To get them, you must first go to Online Updater in the app itself and choose Core Updater – the cores will then be downloaded.

  • Choice of great looking menus
  • Ability to scan directories and files and add them to the game system collection
  • Once a game is added to a collection, see database information about it
  • Download cores online

Fix RetroArch Errors:

Here are some common errors on the gaming platform, with possible solutions.

Fix Untrusted Developer Error:

One of the things that Apple does to try stopping you from using unofficial apps is to show an Untrusted Developer error, and this is common with TweakBox. You can fix this and get into the app very easily:

  1. Open Settings and go to Profiles & Device Management in General
  2. Look for the app in the profile list and tap on it
  3. Trust the app and close Settings
  4. When you try RetroArch again, it will be fine
