Cydia Ipod Download : How To Install Cydia On Your iPod Touch – The iPod Touch, touted by Apple fans as “the iPhone without a phone”, has been around for quite some time now. The first generation iPod Touch was released way back in October, 2001. Today, we have the 6th generation iPod Touch released in July, 2015.
It’s been more than 2 years now since Apple released the 6th gen iPod Touch. Fans are still wondering if Apple would release a “new” or would update the iPod Touch for 2018. The chances are bleak according to this site. Also, try to visit the official Apple website and check out the menu. You will see Apple devices listed but the iPod is noticeable missing from the menu items. If you search the site for “iPod“, you will still find it and you can click the link to go to the page.
We will just have to wait for whatever plan the Cupertino Company has for its iPod line. In the meantime, user can get most out of their iPod Touch by downloading and installing the Cydia app on their devices.
What Is Cydia?
For those not (yet) familiar with jailbreaking, Cydia is similar to the Official AppStore but it is for jailbroken devices. It is a mobile app package manager for jailbroken iDevices like the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch. Cydia gathers a slew of repositories that host tons of apps, mods, themes and tweaks to customize your device and make them more personal. Remember, these 3rd party apps, mod, themes and tweaks are NOT available from Apple’s AppStore. You can only get them by installing Cydia on your iPod Touch.
Why Should You Install Cydia On Your iPod Touch?
Apple’s iOS is a very restrictive (read: close) environment. This is the main reason behind the jailbreaking community. Jailbreaking allows iDevice users to break free of Apple’s confining platform and completely “own” their devices.
The most important reason for jailbreaking your iPod Touch is Cydia. As mentioned above, AppStore alternative Cydia has everything an iPod Touch user wants to improve and customize the device. You don’t have to search for Cydia iPod download as this post will show you how to install Cydia on your iPod Touch easily.
