How to Install IPA on iPhone or iPad using 3uTools (Cydia Impactor Alternatives)

Currently the Cydia Impactor application, which is usually used to install .IPA applications or files  for iOS / iPadOS iPhone, iPod touch or iPad is experiencing a problem and it is still not being repaired so it can't function anymore.

But there is no need to worry, the good news is that this time we have a new application that can function the same as Cydia Impactor to install .IPA files via your computer using your own Apple ID, and yes, that application is 3uTools .

FYI: this page is translated from my original blog which is in Indonesian, so maybe the translation is not good enough

3uTools is a multifunctional application for iOS users, apart from being able to install .IPA files through your own Apple ID, 3uTools also has many other functions such as File Management, Flashing Firmware / IPSW iOS, Jailbreak and many more.

Well, without further ado, just follow the steps below to install .IPA files using the 3uTools application.
