Frequently Asked Questions

Your questions, answered.

As of now, no. Apple is preventing us from using JIT, which is necessary to provide good performance. For more information, see this blog post.

Please see our download page for details on how to install DolphiniOS.

No, a jailbreak is not required.

All iOS versions from iOS 14.0 and newer are supported.

All devices with an A9 processor and newer are supported. Such devices include:

  • iPhone 6s and newer
  • iPhone SE (1st generation) and newer
  • iPad (5th generation) and newer
  • iPad Pro (1st generation) and newer
  • iPod Touch (7th generation)

Devices with an A8 or A8X chip and older cannot run DolphiniOS because of missing GPU features.

Due to limitations created by Apple, we recommend using a device with at least 4GB of RAM (such as the iPhone 11) as they can take advantage of a performance boost. While devices with less than 4GB of RAM can still run DolphiniOS, they will have reduced performance compared to devices that have more RAM.

The latest release has a known issue on some devices which causes performance to drop when dual core is enabled. If you are having issues with performance, try disabling dual core (Settings -> Config -> General -> turn off "Enable Dual Core").

Please see our JIT Help page for more information.
