    A developer named William Cobb is currently working on a Dolphin build for iOS, dubbed GC4iOS. An alpha build can be compiled directly from source and apparently it already can run some games at 3 to 20FPS. It requires a 64 bit device, iOS 8.1 and up and runs on both jailbroken and jailed phones. This is what the readme currently says:

    A changelog to a commit from July 1st says:

    I think this is pretty interesting once JIT is 100% restored as iOS devices usually have much better SoCs than Android devices, achieving better scores on benchmarks with just a clockrate of half of the Android competition. The A10 chip, coming up later this year as well as the A10X chip likely will again set the bar very high for mobile SoCs. Lets hope that the JIT problem introduced with iOS 9 will be solved soon.

    It would be amazing seeing GCN running above 40fps on an apple device.

    This is nice but last I heard didn't iOS 9 effectively kill high-end emulation on mobile Apple products or have devs found a workaround?

    It actually works on non-jailbroken device, but only if you have a Mac.

    You don't need a Mac. You can sign up to one if those app-signing websites and install it from a different app store.

    It's not warez. But you have to pay for it. Google ipwnstore for example.

    However, the above said jailbroken and didn't say anything about non-jailbroken in the list.

    Open Xcode, paste the source code in that, connect your device and install it.
