GBA4iOS emulator on iOS, all the things you need to know


What is GBA4iOS?

GBA4iOS is a free emulator for iOS that allows you to experience Gameboy Advance games on your iPhone without the need for an actual console/gamepad. It was developed in 2016 by Riley Testut, a high school student in the U.S. Version 2.0 of GBA4iOS has been released for just 3 months and has reached almost 10 million downloads.

Game Boy is one of the most fun and classic games ever made. In an age of complex multiplayer games and DLC-filled titles, nostalgia has become the norm for many. Many iPhone users have long wanted to play Nintendo games on their iOS devices. But Apple has always had a “no” attitude towards emulator apps. With this in mind, a number of individual developers have brought emulators to iOS in a viable way. GBA4iOS is one of the more notable ones.

The latest version of GBA4iOS is currently 2.1, which supports Nintendo and others, in addition to the Game Boy Advance.

According to our tests, GBA4iOS is quite well-finished and runs smoothly for many of the modded games from back in the day. The sound reproduction and the emulator’s running interface are quite good. The emulator’s interface is also very good, which is much better than those of browser-based console emulators.

GBA4iOS 2.1 also adds support for GB / GBC games. So basically, all the Game Boy games from back in the day are now available. Cheat Codes are now supported so that players can play with pleasure. Thirdly, it is compatible with iPad. So even if you’re an iPad mini user, you can still play the game with the screen up and have a better experience!

My only regret is that playing GBA games on a touchscreen device feels a little less comfortable. If you’re a standard Game Boy gamer, you’ll have more fun with a dedicated iPhone/iPad button set.
