How To: Fake Your Ios Version.

Fake Your Ios Version.

If you are like me and you have a old iPhone and you don't want to buy a new one, you can fake your ios version by fallowing this tutorial. Just to be safe i am not responsible for what you do with this or if you mess up and wreck your phone. Plus ios and iPhone all belong to their rightful owners.

Step 1: Get Either iFile or Figure Out How to Ssh into Your iPhone.

Get OpenSSH or iFile from cydia. For iFile i recommend either the insanelyi source (

Step 2: Go to the Root of Your iPhone.

If you are using iFile hit the back arrow until you see a / (Forward Slash) on the top of the screen.

Step 3: Go to the System Folder.

Scroll down and press the system folder.

Step 4: Go to the Library Folder.

It is the only folder in the system folder.

Step 5: Go the CoreServices Folder.

Scroll down and go into the core services.

Step 6: Open the SystemVersion.Plist in the Plist Editor.

Look for the key that says <key>ProductVersion</key>. And edit numbers in the string below it. Just to be safe you might want to remember the default numbers. Right now i am running 6.0.1 on my iPhone 2g...

Step 7: Check if You Did It Right.

After you edit it press the blue button that says done. Close iFile and then go to Settings>>>General>>>About. And for version it should be what ever number you changed it to.

Step 8: Heads UP!!!!!

This will work for some Cydia and AppStore apps but not all of them. Hope this helps!!!!

Just updated your iPhone? You'll find new emoji, enhanced security, podcast transcripts, Apple Cash virtual numbers, and other useful features. There are even new additions hidden within Safari. Find out what's new and changed on your iPhone with the iOS 17.4 update.


No use,You may be able to download the App from Appstore but when it loads on the springboard, it collapses.Moreover your App store will crash again and again.

Does this work with the latest version of WhatsApp (January 1st 2013)?

Or better yet, is there any similar way to make WhatsApp believe that is the latest version (2.8.7) while being 2.8.4 ?

Yeah you can use WhatsApp 2.8.7, I'm using it with my I phone 3g , just change the version TO 4.3 and above :)

is there away to fake wich idevice u have , for e.g. i have ipod 5g can trick it to be an iphone 5

No my appstore is broken, won't show any items anymore!
