Like most music streaming apps out there, Spotify is free to download and use. However, there are always limitations within a free plan. If users want more features such as unlimited skips, no ads interruption, or download music on the go (offline listening), then they have to pay $9.99 a month.
Don’t get me wrong; I think the price is reasonable when compared to the features you get, however, not everyone has the budget to pay almost ten dollars on a monthly basis for Spotify Premium.
If you are in that group of users, here’s how you can get Spotify Premium for free on your iOS device. I recently came across an app called Spotify++. Apparently, this is the tweaked version of the original app, and the Premium plan is already unlocked for you.
How to Install Spotify++ on iOS 10 Without Jailbreak
- Download the Spotify++ IPA file from here
- You will also need a tool called Cydia Impactor. You can obtain it from this page
- Connect your iPhone to the computer
- Locate the .IPA file from Step 1 and Drag / Drop it to Impactor
- Enter your Apple ID and password
After that, Spotify++ will be installed on your iOS device. Before you can open the app, go to Settings > General > Profile or Device Management and tap Trust for the email address you used earlier.
Don’t let the instructions above discourage you from getting started. The process is actually pretty easy. Now that your iPhone has trusted the app, go back to the home screen and open Spotify++. There won’t be any different in the interface. It will look the same as the original Spotify app. To check if your iPhone already has Spotify Premium or not, tap on any album or song and select Download.
The track will be downloaded to your device. From there, you can listen to any of your saved music on Spotify without an internet connection. This is useful if you’re low on cellular data or you take the app with you on the go.
Second Method: Install Spotify++ Without a Computer
For those of you who don’t have a computer, there is a way to install Spotify++ directly on your device. However, I do not recommend this method because the certificate you get isn’t always reliable.
Still want to proceed? Keep reading…
- On your iPhone, open the Safari browser
- Click here to visit the IPASigner page
- Tap on the link that says, “Install Spotify ++ With Push Notifications”
- When prompted, tap Install
Close the Safari app, and you will see Spotify++ being downloaded. Once the app is ready, don’t forget to open the Settings app and go to the Profile page as I did earlier. If you still don’t know how this tutorial can help.
Apart from that, those two methods are relatively easy to follow. I only recommend this method if you don’t have enough money to pay for Spotify Premium. When you are financially stable, you should support the streaming service by subscribing to their paid plan.
