How To Download and Use Esign on iOS 16?

Vineet Maheshwari

If you use an iOS device, you likely know for a fact how restrictive Apple is about downloading unofficial or third-party apps without jailbreaking.

Even if you manage to somehow download an IPA file to your iOS, the system recognizes it as foreign and revokes the app, thereby making it unusable. This is one of those things that most Apple or iOS users have experienced at least once in their life.

Esign is an IPA signing tool that reverses that complication and enables iOS users to use their signing certificate for the apps to continue using third-party applications. This article will explore more about this app and how you can download it.

What is Esign?

Esign is an “on-device IPA signature tool” for iOS devices. It is compatible with iOS devices running on iOS 12 to iOS 16.3 beta version.

With this app, iOS users can transiently sign and install IPA files to their iOS devices without requiring access to a PC or even jailbreak.

Having access to this tool ensures that iOS users have their signing certificate (p12), which reduces the risks of an unofficial or modified app getting revoked from the device.

How to Download and Install Esign using AltStore Impactor?

If you wish to download and use Esign on your iOS device, you’d first need access to a PC to download the tool. This is the only step where you need access to a PC.

Once that’s out of the way, follow the steps as mentioned:

  1. Start by downloading the Esign IPA file into your PC.
  2. Download AltStore from a reliable platform.
  3. Connect your iPhone to the PC using a USB cable.
  4. Launch AltStore that you just downloaded.
  5. Drag and drop the Esign IPA into AltStore.
  6. You might need to enter your Apple ID and password at this stage for verification.
  7. Once the app is done installing, follow Settings -> General -> Profiles. Tap on your profile with your Apple ID.
  8. Click on the Trust button.

And, that’s all. You have successfully installed the Esign tool to your iOS device and are ready to sort things out concerning downloading unofficial apps to your device.


The download and installation process of the Esign IPA to your iPhone is a little hectic and complicated. However, if you follow the steps mentioned, things should work out without any complications.
