Have you heard of emulators? Trust me for iPhone users, emulators work as a miracle. Every PS2 game you want will be available on iOS devices with the help of emulators. One of the emulator which I would like to suggest is AetherSX2. It is the most amazing and easy going emulator that I have come across in my search. Let me show you how you can get AetherSX2 on your iOS device. Let’s get started!
What is AetherSX2?
AetherSX2 is an amazing emulator offering the opportunity to play PS2 games effortlessly. This softwarebased emulator eliminates the need for a physical console, bringing your favourite titles directly to your fingertips.The interface of AetherSX2 is designed to be userfriendly and straightforward.
When users open the application, they are presented with a main window that displays various options and settings. At the top of the window, there is a toolbar that includes options for opening and configuring games, accessing the emulator’s settings, and managing save states.
Can you get AetherSX2 on iOS?
In a way No! Apple has a very strict policy regarding its privacy and security, hence it is difficult to get AetherSX2 on iOS devices. In fact currently there is no version of AetherSX2 developed for iOS. Since there is no compatible version of AetherSX2 created for iOS platform, even if you download it from third party store, it won’t work properly.
However, there are many third party apps that can offer you an IPS file of AetherSX2 for iOS, you can try if you want. But also take care of all the risk you will be putting your device to. I can still provide you with the method I used to download AetherSX2 on my iOS devices. But be careful as these methods are not trustworthy and may change the course of the server, so these steps might not work for all, or may stop working after a while.
It would be easy for you if your jailbreak your device, but that would put your device at risk and open to all the malware and security threats. So, I would suggest you not to do so.
