Unlock the Holotape Games in the Fallout 4 Pip-Boy App by Using iMazing

TouchArcade Rating:

I just wrote about iMazing the other day, which is a pretty cool app for PC and Mac that lets you backup and restore apps’ save data through iOS restore processes. So, you can use it on any iOS device, despite Apple shuting off access to apps’ sandboxes in iOS 8.3. One potential use of the app is sharing save data between people, and the iMazing folks emailed us about one particularly clever usage: you can use a special .imazing file to unlock some mini-games in the Fallout Pip-Boy (Free) app right away. The video shows off how:

So, you download the iMazing file from here, restore it in iMazing, and you can play the 5 “Holotape Games" on your device without having to unlock them normally. Here’s one of the games, Pipfall:

This is based on a hack by a redditor, and iMazing just is providing the easy way to install this if you don’t have a jailbroken device. iMazing is $35 normally (though the TOUCHARCADEISAMAZING coupon code will save you $7) but there’s an unlimited 15-day trial if you just want to use it for this or want to see how it works for you. iMazing does work as advertised, and this sort of tweak is one of the fun things you can do with the app. Regardless, these minigames might help tide you over until the actual Fallout 4 is out next week.
