How to Download Happy Chick Emulator on iOS 13

Read this article to know how to download Happy Chick Emulator on iOS 13 to play all your games from over 18 different consoles. Know the steps to download, install and start using this application.

While the iOS app store is full of games of all types, the one thing you won't find is a way to play any of your favorite console games. Games consoles were all the rage once but mobile phones and tablets have taken over as the gaming device of choice and that is one of the main reasons why many iOS users installed Cydia on their devices.

It was the only place where games emulators could be downloaded but it wasn't perfect.
Many of the emulators on offer in Cydia only supported one or two consoles at most which meant, if your favorite games were spread over several consoles, you needed several emulators. Not anymore.

How to Download Happy Chick Emulator App

HappyChick is, without a doubt, an emulator that offers the most console support out of all the emulators available. However, Apple doesn't support this kind of app so you need to look elsewhere to download it and we are going to show you two different ways.

Method 1: AppValley App

AppValley was originally designed to be an alternative to Cydia, offering some of the modified apps and games and some tweaks that you could once only get by jailbreaking. However, given the sheer number of apps and games in it, all for free, it has also become a popular alternative to the official app store. HappyChick is just one of the great apps you can download and here's how to do it:
  1. Open Safari browser on your iPhone or iPad – this is the best browser to use for this
  2. Go to the AppValley VIP website and download the installer
  3. Tap the icon to open it – you may see an untrusted developer error. If you do, remember the developer name on the message
  4. Open your Settings app and go to Profiles & Device Management (in the General section)
  5. Tap the name of that developer in the list of app profiles
  6. Tap the Trust button
  7. Close Settings and then tap the AppValley icon again
  8. Now you can use it; type HappyChick in the search bar and wait
  9. Tap the result and the app page opens
  10. Tap on Install and leave your iPhone or iPad
  11. When it's installed the HappyChick ap icon will be on your device

Method 2: IPA File Download

If you are not bothered about all the extras that AppValley offers, this method will only install the HappyChick emulator app. For this method, you will need:
  • Your Mac or Windows PC
  • Cydia Impactor tool
  • HappyChick IPA file
  • Apple ID

As a note, if you prefer not to use your normal Apple ID, it is possible to set up another free account that you can keep for use with Cydia Impactor.
  1. Open the browser on your Mac or Windows PC and go to the official Cydia Impactor website
  2. Download the tool for your operating system and save it, preferably on your desktop
  3. Now download Happy Chick IPA file – only use the official source for safety reasons
  4. Extract the file and save it, again to your desktop
  5. Plug in your iOS device and open the Cydia Impactor tool
  6. When you see that your device has been detected you can drag the IPA file and drop it into Cydia Impactor
  7. Next, type your Apple ID and password in
  8. You might get an Expired Certificate warning message appear; just click OK
  9. Now it will take Cydia Impactor a bit of time to pull the file in, sign it and install it on your device
  10. When it's done, you can use HappyChick emulator

If you do get the untrusted developer error, simply go into Profiles in your settings app and trust the developer.

There is a downside to using the IPA method – if you are using a free Apple ID, the app certificate will only last for 7 days. At that point, it will expire and the app crashes and you have to start over again – every 7 days. You don't get this when you use AppValley to install HappyChick.

Frequently Asked Questions

There are quite a few questions that we get asked about HappyChick, some more than others. These are the most common ones:

Is it Possible to Update HappyChick?

Absolutely. In fact, the developers will always notify you when an update is available and all you have to do is tap the notification and follow the download instructions.

HappyChick Keeps Crashing, What's Wrong With it?

There is nothing wrong with HappyChick; the most likely cause is your own device performance and that will be down to lack of space. Delete HappyChick off your device and then do some housekeeping – remove any unwanted files and apps, and put any media you have on a separate flash drive Then try again.

How Safe is HappyChick?

As with any unofficial app, you are taking a risk in downloading it. However, the developers have put tight security in place on the app, making sure that it cannot harm your device. They also push out updates on a regular basis and, following our own tests, we can tell you that we have no doubt as to the security of the app. Plus, the fact that you don't jailbreak means you don't hack the root of the iOS, keeping things even safer. As a precaution, do use anti-virus software on your device though.

HappyChick is one of the best emulator apps available today; it offers support for multiple platforms, is completely free to use and doesn't require a jailbreak. Try it today and you won't go back to relying on the official app store for your games.
