Switch Emulator for iOS is an experimental open-source emulator for the Nintendo Switch from the creators of Citra.
It is written in C++ with portability in mind, with builds actively maintained for iPhone, iPad and Android smartphone.
The experimental beta version of Nintendo Switch emulator project is aviable on one of the link below.
Most of the development happens on GitHub. It’s also where our central repository is hosted.
To start playing games, yuzu needs a couple of different files and directories from your switch in order to play them properly.
If your Switch is patched, you will be unable to complete the following steps.
As well, the emulator runs on iOS 9.0 and up on iPhone devices.
The iOS version of Switch emulator is in alpha and should not be expected to work as well as the Android counterpart.
The latest stable version of Switch emulator is a good choice to start with: it works with a lot of games and is well tested.
Development versions have the latest fixes and optimizations, but their constantly changing nature means that little testing has been done on them and unknown bugs may appear.
Our buildbot provides each revision of Dolphin in four variants on the main site:
- iOS 8.0 (or higher) for iPhone 8+ (or equivalent iPad devices)
- Android APKs for 64-bit Android (32bit in alpha version)
Nightly builds are expected to keep maximum accuracy, and therefore, cannot run many commercial titles at the moment.
They are mostly useful for development purposes.
