Windows 10 has one serious, and well-known problem – the lack of apps in the Store. Developers and programmers have developed a certain animosity towards Windows 10 apps. As a result, Windows 10 users aren’t able to run some of the most known apps and games.

Despite various Microsoft’s efforts to attract more developers into developing apps for Windows 10, the situation seems to be the same. Because of that, users don’t even consider Windows 10 as their main entertainment hub, and tend to use other platforms, most likely Android and iOS.

As a fair share of Windows 10 users also owns an iPhone, it seems like a logical step for them to ‘transfer’ some of their apps from one platform to another. Luckily, there are a few ways to do so. Even though running iOS apps on Windows 10 is not the most reliable option, it can get the job done for some basic operation.

So, keep reading this article, and you’ll find out how to run iOS apps and games on Windows 10.

Run iOS apps and games on Windows 10

The best way to use iOS apps and games on Windows 10 is with an emulator. There are numerous emulators that allow you to simulate the iOS operating system on your computer, in order to use its services, including apps and games.

Perhaps the best iOS emulator for Windows 10 currently available on the market is iPadian. This emulator allows you to run many iOS apps on your computer, in an iPad-like interface.


Of course, as running iOS apps on Windows 10 is not supported by default, using iPadian has its downsides. The biggest flaw of this emulator is (ironically same as Windows 10) the limited number of apps and games. Namely, iPadian doesn’t support iOS’ app store, as it uses its own custom app store.

Compared to the original app store, iPadian’s store looks poor. In the games category, there are less than 10 games you can install and play on your computer. However, if the app you want to run is featured in iPadian’s store, it’s a pretty good choice.

You can install iPadian just like any other program. Just download the emulator, install it, and you can start using apps and games. Also, keep in mind that you need .NET Framework and the latest version of Adobe Flash Player, for security reasons.

iPadian comes with a few essential apps pre-installed, like Facebook or YouTube. For everything else, just download what you want from the store. The interface is a combination of Windows and iPad-like environments, so you’ll have a feeling that you’re indeed using an iPad.
