How to Download and Install Pokemon Go for iPhone, iPad

We may say the easiest way is to download and install Pokemon Go on Android. After our tutorial article on Android many readers have written to us asking for a way to download the game on their iPhone. If Pokemon Go is available in your region, all you need to do is head to the App Store and download the app. The catch is that it’s only been officially released in a handful of regions.

If it is not available in your region, you can still install the game, but the process is slightly longer. You’ll need to create a new Apple ID for a region where Pokemon Go is officially available, such as United States. Follow these steps and you should be able to download and install Pokemon Go on your iPhone no matter where you live.
