iPogo Direct Install: Does It Still Work in 2024?

by Sovan Mandal Updated On May 16, 2024 Published On Oct 13, 2021 Tips

iPogo is a modded version of Pokémon GO, allowing Pokémon GO users to spoof the location in the game. It can't be downloaded directly from the Apple Store, even if downloaded from other sources. You'll need to get creative to properly install it on your iPhone or iPad, especially to open it, as Apple stops unauthorized apps from working by requiring an app certificate,

To use iPogo on your Apple device, you'll need to follow extra steps to properly install it on your iPhone or iPad, for it to work. One such method is called direct installation. In this guide, I will show you whether iPogo direct install still works in 2024.

What is iPogo Direct Install?

Direct installing, as the name implies, installs iPogo directly on your iPhone or iPad, as you would with an app from the Apple Store. This is the most straightforward way to install iPogo but is also the most temporary method.

Because Apple authenticates apps on your device through app certificates, this means that an app like iPogo will most likely get revoked by your iPhone, disabling you from using iPogo altogether.

What is iPogo Direct Install

Here's how to directly install iPogo:

  1. Fully close Pokemon Go on your iPhone or iPad.
  2. Head to Settings.
  3. Select "Safari" and clear the cache and browsing data.
  4. Go to "iPogo Direct Install".
  5. Click "Direct Install".
  6. Pause the installation process.
  7. Next, head back to Settings and select "Safari".
  8. Once selected, clear the cache and browsing data.
  9. Turn on your device's Airplane Mode once the app finishes downloading and before installing.
  10. After the installation, turn off Airplane Mode.
  11. Then, head to Settings > General > Profiles.
  12. Press "Trust".
  13. Next, press "Verify App".
  14. Head to Settings > Safari, once again and clear the cache and browsing data.
  15. Open Safari on your device and open at least five different websites.
  16. Next, turn on Airplane Mode again.
  17. Launch the Pokemon Go app.
  18. Turn off Airplane Mode once Niantic shows up on the screen.

Does iPogo Direct Install Still Work in 2024?

Unfortunately, the old direct installation method for iPogo no longer works as of 2024.

iPogo's official website has removed the old direct installation method and replaced it with Signulous as the "direct" installation tool for iPogo. Signulous is a reliable app signing and installation service, and works like a third-party app store, allowing users to install iPogo onto their devices and ensuring that iPogo's app certificate won't get revoked by Apple.

You may wonder, will iPogo's direct install ever be up and running again? I'm afraid to say that directly installing iPogo will most likely never work again. This might be because iPogo's certificate is being signed by a third-party entity, which makes it easy for Niantic as well as Apple to revoke the certification.

To use Signulous to install iPogo, you'll need to pay a yearly subscription ($20/year), which is arguably a small price to pay to continue playing Pokémon GO and other similar games that make use of your location.

Here's how to use Signulous to install iPogo directly:

  1. Register your device, making sure to select the "iOS Code Signing" option.
  2. Wait until you receive a confirmation email.
  3. Create an account for your device.
  4. Once you've created an account for your iPhone or iPad, log in your account using Safari.
  5. Install a temporary profile to let us match your account to your device by following the steps.
  6. On the App Library, look for iPogo.
  7. Lastly, select Sign App > Install App and wait for the installation to finish.


By using Signulous, you're able to directly install iPogo on your device without much hassle. Besides being the only paid option when it comes to installing iPogo, it also offers the most reliability.

Alternatives to iPogo Direct Install

Install iPogo using Sideloadly

If you prefer not to use Signulous, Sideloadly is another option that iPogo officially recommends for installing iPogo. It is a sideload utility that allows you to bypass your device's OS and easily install IPA files on your device.

However, if you use Sideloadly, you will need to reinstall every week at a bare minimum. This does not include any updates to the app that may require reinstallation or further revokes to your personal certificate. Here's how to install iPogo using Sideloadly:

  1. Get the iPogo IPA for iOS.
  2. Download Sideloadly to your computer and ensure you have iTunes on Windows (Macs usually have it already).
  3. Plug your iOS device into your computer using a USB cable.
  4. Enter your Apple ID and drag the iPogo IPA file onto Sideloadly.
  5. Click on the Start button and input your Apple ID password when prompted.
  6. Once it's done, head over to your device's Settings, go to General, and find Device Management. There, you should see the option to trust the installer. Make sure to enable it.

Open Sideloadly

Choose MockGo iOS GPS Spoofer

If you feel hesitant about using iPogo for whatever reason, you can use an alternative spoofing tool to fake your device's GPS location. This is where MockGo comes in.

MockGo is a spoofing program that allows you to change your iPhone or iPad's location with only a few clicks. Moreover, MockGo offers trial versions for you to test its services.

Here's how to MockGo to spoof your location for Pokémon GO:

1. Download and install MockGo on your computer. Launch the program once the installation finishes.

2. Connect your iPhone or iPad to your computer using a USB cable, then click "Start". MockGo works great for most iPhone devices and iOS versions including the latest iPhone 15 and iOS 17.

Connect your iOS device to the computer

3. Next, from the map, click the "Teleport" icon found on the upper-right corner.

Wrapping It Up

iPogo has many similarities with MockGo. You can opt to use one or the other, depending on your preference. Both tools are reliable and convenient to use, despite the paid subscription.

Doing a direct installation is only one of many methods to install iPogo on your iOS device. Despite its convenience, however, there are a couple of drawbacks that may deter you from using this method. If you have any complaints or inquiries, don't hesitate to leave a comment down below.
