Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas is one of the most popular games ever made, featuring a huge open world and tons of gameplay. The iOS version brings the same great game to iPhone and iPad, but with some limitations compared to other platforms. One big question many players have is whether you can use cheat codes in the iOS version of GTA San Andreas.

Using Cheats on GTA San Andreas for iOS

Unfortunately, unlike the Android version, it is not possible to use cheat codes in the standard iOS release of GTA San Andreas without jailbreaking.

The reason is that iOS does not allow connecting external keyboards or installing third party keyboard apps that would be necessary to enter cheat codes while playing. So out of the box, there is no way to input cheats on an iPhone or iPad.

Some players have managed to get cheats working on a jailbroken device by installing special tweaks and scripts. But for most users, jailbreaking is not recommended as it can cause instability and security issues.

In a nutshell:

  • No cheats possible on standard GTA San Andreas iOS without jailbreak
  • Enabling cheats requires jailbreaking and installing mods
  • Jailbreaking has risks and downsides for most users

Use GTA San Andreas Hack IPA

If you search online, you may find modified (“hacked”) IPA files that enable cheats and other mods in GTA San Andreas iOS. These are pre-modded game files you can install with a tool like Sideloadly.

However, while tempting, we do not recommend using such unofficial IPAs:

  • They often contain malware or privacy-invading trackers
  • Can damage your device or cause crashes
  • May prevent you from playing online/multiplayer
  • Risk getting your Apple ID banned

In short, while hacked IPAs may offer cheats and other mods, they come with too many downsides for most iOS users. The safes option is to play the standard version from the App Store.

How to Use Sideloadly to Sideload GTA San Andreas Hack IPA

Sideloadly is an application that makes it easy to install IPA files on iOS without jailbreaking. You can use it to load normal apps from outside the App Store, or unofficial modded IPAs.

Here is a quick Sideloadly tutorial:

  1. Download and install Sideloadly on your Windows or Mac computer
  2. Connect your iPhone or iPad to the computer via USB
  3. In Sideloadly, upload or drag-and-drop the IPA file
  4. Enter your Apple ID when prompted
  5. Sideloadly will sign the IPA with your Apple ID and install it

Once installed, you can access the sideloaded app like normal. Just be aware apps installed via Sideloadly will get revoked after 7 days unless you have a paid developer account.


While GTA San Andreas has great cheat codes on other platforms, they unfortunately cannot be used on standard iOS versions. Enabling cheats requires risky modifications like jailbreaking.

Your best bet is to enjoy San Andreas iOS as-is, without any cheats or hacks. But you can use tools like Sideloadly to install normal apps from outside the App Store.
