The AltStore Team released an updated version of the AltStore app for iPhones and iPads on Wednesday, officially bringing it up to version 1.6.2.
The update was first announced via Twitter, where the AltStore Team explained that AltStore v1.6.2 addressed an issue in which users may have experienced the dreaded “no provisioning profile with the requested identifier…” error message.
If you’ve never experienced this error before, then we’ve included a screenshot of what this may have looked like for your viewing pleasure (or displeasure) below:
Obviously, the error was a fault in AltStore and not an actual issue with a user’s sideloaded apps. That said, today’s update fixes the problem and ensures stable sideloading capabilities without the aforementioned error in normal practice.
One thing worth noting is that users must install AltStore v1.6.2 manually via AltServer on their Mac or PC. This means you won’t simply be able to update from the AltStore app on your iPhone or iPad because you just physically connect to your computer to sideload the updated AltStore app.
If you’re an existing AltStore user, then we strongly recommend updating to version 1.6.2 since it can improve the user experience by keeping at least one frustrating error message at bay.
