Spotify was first launched back in 2008 and now it has been one of the most popular and best music streaming services around. Actually, it’s my favorite music app on my iPhone & iPad, not the Apple Music.
Spotify has two ways to listen: Free and Premium. Spotify Free is available to anyone at no cost, so it uses advertisements that play between songs to cover costs. The Free version also has many other limits such as you cannot listen offline, you aren’t able to pick a song and play it on the spot,…
If you want to remove all these limits and get better audio quality, you’ll need to subscribe to Premium, which costs $9.99 per month. I know not everyone affords to pay this monthly fee.
Luckily, there is a tweak named Spotify++ that can help you get Spotify Premium for completely free. It’s developed by a third-party developer and you cannot download it from the App Store. Just follow the instructions in this article, you will have this app installed on your iPhone even without jailbreak it.
How to get Spotify Premium free on iOS without Jailbreak
In this article, I will show you three methods to install Spotify++ on your iPhone and iPad. The first method is to use an app installer called TutuApp. It doesn’t require you to use your computer or jailbreak your device. Once you’ve installed TutuApp, you have access to not only Spotify++ but many other cool tweaks such as AirShou, Snapchat++, MovieBox,…
Method 1: Download Spotify++ using TutuApp
Step 1: Open Safari and go to http://tutuapp.vip
Step 2: When the website is loaded, tap on the “Download Now” button. When prompted, tap Install to confirm.
Step 3: Wait for a few seconds to download the app. Once done, you’ll see its icon on the Home screen. When you open it for the first time, it will announce you that this app has not been trusted yet. All you have to do is go to Settings > General > Device Management and trust the profile that belongs to the TutuApp app. Now TutuApp is ready. If you’ve downloaded the official Spotify app from the App Store, then remove it before we move on to the next step.
Step 4: Now, launch TutuApp, search for Spotify++ and install it. Once Spotify++ is installed, you’ll see the “Untrusted Enterprise Developer” message again. Just go to the Settings app and trust the profile belonging to Spotify like you did with TutuApp. Spotify++ is now ready to help you get almost all premium features of Spotify for free.
Note that the Spotify++ app is not available to use permanently as Apple can revoke the certificate of the app at any time. If you see the “Untrusted Enterprise Developer” again, please try to reinstall it from TutuApp.
Method 2: Download Spotify++ using AppValley
In a similar fashion to how TutuApp or vShare works, AppValley lets users browse through and download various apps or modified experiences without having to go through Apple’s official App Store. And Spotify++ can also be downloaded from this third party as well. Here are the instructions on how to download AppValley and use it to get Spotify++.
Step 1: Launch Safari and go to http://appvalley.vip. You can choose to either install AppValley’s configuration profile or native app.
Step 2: Once you’ve installed AppValley, open it and you will find Spotify++ featured on the home screen. Select it and then tap “Get” to start installing the app.
Step 3: After installing Spotify++, if you open it and see the “Untrusted Enterprise Developer…” message, you’ll need to go to Settings > General > Device and Profile Management and trust the developer. If not, you’re good to go.
If for some reasons, you cannot install the Spotify++ app using TutuApp or AppValley, you can try method 3. The biggest disadvantage of this method is that you’ll have to reinstall the app every 7 days. Keep reading to know more about the requirements and drawbacks of each method.
Method 3: Install Spotify++ using Cydia Impactor
The downside of this method is you need to use your computer and every 7 days, the app needs to be re-installed due to Apple’s restrictions on free developer accounts.
Step 1: Before starting, please remove the Spotify app from your device. On your computer, click this link to download the IPA file of Spotify++.
Step 2: Follow the instructions in this article to install Cydia Impactor and learn how to use it to sideload IPA file into iPhone.
Step 3: Once you’ve installed the Spotify++ app, open the Settings app and navigate to General > Profiles & Device Management and find the Spotify++ app profile (should be your Apple ID). Open it and click ‘Trust’ twice.
Step 4: Now you’re able to listen to any song with all the Premium features
That’s it. I just showed you three methods to get Spotify Premium free. Hopefully, it can help you enjoy music on your iPhone/iPad without any restriction. If you have any question about the installation process, let me know by leaving a comment below. I will try to respond as soon as possible.
Spotify++ Not Working/ “Unable to Download App” issue
After a certain period of time, Spotify++ may be revoked by Apple. Apple doesn’t like tweaked apps like this so they always try to ban them as soon as possible. When it happens, you’ll get the “Untrusted Enterprise Developer…” again, and unfortunately, this time you can’t trust it in the Settings app. Spotify++ has completely stopped working!
Since the app’s certificate is expired, you can’t re-download it right away. You’ll be notified “Unable to Download App… Spotify++ could not be installed at this time”. What to do now? Normally you’ll have to wait until a third party (TutuApp, Tweakbox,…) signs the app and update it again.
I’m also tired of downloading, removing, and re-downloading. Each time it got revoked, I lost all of my app data. Luckily, there are some workarounds to deal with this issue that I’ve discovered. Let’s see if they can help you out.
If your device is jailbroken
There is Cydia tweak named Cydia Extender that aims at signing IPA apps automatically (as igotbythisname mentioned in his comment). Install this tweak and you can make it work on your own.
Use paid services
Free tweaked apps are installed by so many users. This is one of the reasons that makes the app die soon. To avoid this, many third parties offer a paid service that keeps signed apps working in a long time. Their prices are not too high compared to the Spotify Premium subscription ($8 – $15 per year) and the package also contains many other tweaked apps such as Youtube++, MovieBox, AirShou, Game Emulators…
I’ll give you my recommendation soon…
