‘RetroArch’ Is Now Available on iOS and iPadOS, tvOS Support Being Evaluated

After approving PPSSPP, Apple just approved *the* RetroArch (Free). We knew it was submitted to Apple, but I didn’t think it would be approved this soon. If you’re not familiar with it, RetroArch is an emulation front-end that’s free, ad-free, and open source. It features RetroAchievements, soft patching, MFi controller support, cheats, gyro, shaders, overlays, and much more. While it is now available on iOS and iPadOS, the team confirmed that tvOS support is being evaluated. The full list of consoles supported by RetroArch are below:

If you’d like to grab it, you can get RetroArch on the App Store for iOS here. Check out the official website for RetroArch here. While not as user-friendly as Delta, RetroArch does a lot more with its platform support and features right now. I can’t believe both RetroArch and PPSSPP are now officially on the App Store. What would you like to see next for the world of emulation on iOS?
