Play your fave PSP games on your iPhone with PPSSPP emulator now on Apple App Store

Relive nostalgic moments and scenes of PSP games on your iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, or Apple Vision via the PPSSPP app.

Miss your favorite PSP games? You can revisit them once again on your iOS device as PPSSPP emulator becomes officially available on the Apple App Store.

You can now download the said app, thanks to the App Store’s new guidelines that allowed the return of emulators, so long developers heed to the conditions. 

PPSSPP developer Henrik Rydgård announced the app’s approval and the limitations compared to unofficial builds.

Here they are:

  • Vulkan support through MoltenVK is not yet enabled
  • Magic Keyboard (iPad Keyboard) is not supported
  • The JIT recompiler is not supported
  • RetroAchievements is temporarily disabled

MoltenVK will be enabled in the future while the Magic Keyboard needs another method to become supported. RetroAchievements, on the other hand, will come back with an improved login user interface.

The last one, JIT compiler, won’t be possible at this moment because it conflicts with Apple rules. Despite these limitations, the PPSSPP performs amazingly that iOS device owners can run almost every PSP game at maximum speed.

The real downside is that the app only features a few homemade titles on its Homebrew Store. Users must outsource their favorite games themselves.

Minimum system requirements:

  • iPhone: iOS 12.0 or later
  • iPad: 12.0 or later
  • iPod Touch: 12.0 or later
  • Apple Vision: visionOS 1.0 or later

Those who outsource should convert PSP games to ISO or CSO files.

Check out the PPSSPP on the App Store.
