StoreSwitcher lets you easily switch between App Store accounts

By , Mar 12, 2017

If you have more than one Apple ID associated with your iPhone for downloading apps from the App Store, then having a way to switch between your accounts more easily might be at the top of your wish list.

A new jailbreak tweak called StoreSwitcher by iOS developer Ori Kadosh is a new release that was designed with these kinds of people in mind.

After you install StoreSwitcher, you can go into the App Store and easily switch between your accounts for downloading apps.

To do it, you simply tap on your account at the bottom of the App Store app, and you’ll see a new button in the Apple ID popup labeled “Switch Account” as shown below:

When you tap on it, you get a list of all your available App Store accounts. These are the Apple ID accounts you’ve signed into since installing StoreSwitcher.

With that in mind, if you want to add another account to easily switch to on demand, you’ll need to go to Settings → iTunes & App Store and sign out of your existing account so you can sign into a new one. StoreSwitcher will automatically save your account for future access.

Having multiple App Store accounts is useful for a number of reasons, including when you want access to apps that are only available in other countries or you have a particular setup with your Apple Music subscription, among other things.

Fortunately, because Apple doesn’t offer this functionality out of the box, StoreSwitcher has your back and can be had from Cydia’s BigBoss repository for just $0.99. The tweak works on all jailbroken iOS 9 and iOS 10 devices, whether it’s an iPhone or an iPad.

    I used to love a tweak like this when I was jailbroken on iOS 9. But now I’m on iOS 10 unjailbroken.

    I’ve noticed on iOS 10 that everytime I switch accounts/ countries my downloaded Apple Music deletes, and this damages my playlists.

    No more account switching on my daily driver.

    I wonder if this would allow you to use multiple accounts on games like Clash of Clans.
