Downloading files through torrent is the fastest and most convenient way to download. When the size of a file is really large, torrent download is the most advanced and logical way to download as the download can be paused and resumed. When files are downloaded through torrent clients, a lot of information about the file can be seen and even previewed. When downloading through torrent, best speeds can be achieved by analysing the seeders and leechers. There are a lot of popular torrent sites like thepiratebay.org, torrentz.eu, kickasstrorrents and many more. These websites require torrent clients to download files from them- uTorrent, Bittorent and Bitcomet are the most popular among them. All of these clients are available on PC, the first two are available for Android on the Playstore, but none of them is available for iOS. So, how to download torrents on iPhone? iTransmission!
A tweak called iTransmission for iOS, which has improved a lot over the years, is the best and a free torrent client available for iOS. It works flawlessly with good download speeds.
This tweak is available for both jailbroken and non-jailbroken iOS devices. Unfortunately, this will work on a non-jailbroken device only if it’s under iOS 8.1 ie. till iOS 8.0.2. If you’re jailbroken, all you need to do is to install iTransmission v4.6 from Cydia in the Bigboss repo.
If you’re non-jailbroken and under iOS 8.1, head over to iemulators.com and download the file from the ‘apps’ section directly from safari. To make this method work, the ‘date trick’ is also required. Follow these steps for the date trick:
Tap the ‘install’ button at the bottom.
- Immediately go to ‘Settings’ on your iOS device.
- Head to General, then Date & Time.
- Toggle off “Set Automatically.”
- Scroll the date back one day or to 2012 in some cases.
- Watch the app download and hit “retry” if prompted.
- Open once while the date is rolled back.
- Set your date back to the present.
And the app is ready to be used!
If you’re stuck with iOS 8.1 and non-jailbroken, you could try Blue Downloader app which is available to download from the App Store for $2.99. Or you can jailbreak and make things simple!
