Although we are well into iOS 10, many users are still on iOS 9.3.3, either because they don’t want to update to iOS 10 yet or because their devices are not supported by the latest firmware. Although PPHelper [ext link] was limited to Windows users when it was first released, it has now been updated to support the Mac and an easier download method has been provided for us using the Cydia Impactor tool [ext link]. However, it will still only work on the 64-bit iOS devices.
