Delta Emulator is an iOS multi-system emulator written by Riley Testut, the previous lead developer of GBA4iOS. Play your favorites games from platforms like Nintendo 64, Nintendo DS, SNES, Game Boy (Color, Advanced) on a mobile screen. Download Delta Emulator for iOS without a computer.
What is Delta Emulator?
Delta Emulator is a free iOS app to play games from Nintendo, Super Nintendo, Nintendo 64, Game Boy Color, and Game Boy Advance directly on your iPhone. Download ROMs, import the game files to the emulator, and start playing using iPhone's on-screen controls or a connected controller.
The emulator allows you to manage all games depending on the platform. From settings, you can select controller skins in horizontal and vertical mode, determine how translucent the controller appears on the screen, or manage 3D Touch shortcuts to favorites games.
Moreover, Delta Emulator for iOS 13 allows you to save and load states and any time, activate cheat codes and fast forward option, and select buttons to hold down. Game roms can be imported directly from a web browser, using iTunes sync, or via files stored on iCloud or your iPhone.
Delta fully supports both Dropbox and Google Drive for syncing games, save data, states, and cheats between devices. This allows users to choose the option that makes the most sense for them, which is important since this is a feature everyone should have enabled in settings.

Download Delta Emulator IPA
AltStore can activate max 3 apps on your iPhone using the free certificate. Every 7 days after installing apps, you need to resign apps and send them to the AltServer (running on PC or Mac), which installs the resigned apps back to your device using iTunes WiFi sync (works also using a USB cable).
Step 1. Download AltStore and install the app on your PC or Mac.
Or use any other Cydia Impactor alternative for Windows or macOS.
Step 2. Open Safari and download Delta.IPA version 1.1.2 (32 MB).
Step 3. Lunch AltStore and navigate to "My Apps" section.
Step 4. Tap on the + button available form the left-right corner.
Step 5. Select the downloaded DeltaEmulator.IPA file to install.
Step 6. AltStore will start installing Delta Emulator.
Step 7. The Delta Emulator will be available from your home screen.
To prevent apps from expiring, AltStore can refresh apps in the background when using the same WiFi network. The installed application will be not revoked in the least expected moment thanks to manual installation using your free Apple certificate. Remember that your computer must be on to sing IPAs.
Sideloading the IPA file has some major downsides. If you didn't buy the Apple Developer Certificate, the free one allows you to sing up to 3 apps per device and the certificate is valid only for 7 days. The application will be not revoked but after 7 days it is required to re-sing the file again.
