Delta Emulator for iOS 10

Probably one of the best reasons to jailbreak an iOS device like an iPhone 7 is to install an emulator. An emulator provides the means for people to play older games from the likes of SNES, Gameboy Advance, and N64. Unfortunately, the current iOS 10 does not have a jailbreak tool as of this writing. However, for those who really love retro gaming, fret not for here comes Delta.

Delta is a multi-system emulator for the iOS, iOS 10 to be more specific. This emulator enables iPhone owners to play games from days long gone, back when 8 bit is still mainstream. Consoles like the SNES, N64, and portables like the Gameboy Advance can be emulated by Delta.

The Delta emulator was developed by the same guy, Riley Testut, who made the GBA4iOS more than two years ago.

When Apple released the iOS 8.1 update, it eventually killed the GBA4iOS. This meant that anyone who wants to emulate old 8-bit games will need to downgrade to a lower version of iOS. However, due to the tremendous success of GBA4iOS, Testut was inspired to create another emulator for iOS.

Fast forward to today, Testut finally released the beta version of Delta for iOS 10. This app not only emulates Gameboy Color and Gameboy Advance, it also does emulation for Super Nintendo and Nintendo 64.

As mentioned earlier, the main requirement for the app is an iPhone or iPad with iOS 10. On top of this, users will also need an Apple ID.

Unfortunately, the application for the beta test is now over. For now, all that can be done is to wait for the public release of the emulator app. The beta test may span for a few months before going for a stable release. Meanwhile, checking Testut?s blog every now and then may help provide more information on the possible future release.
