CyberGhost offers a native iOS app, which means that getting started will take only a few minutes. This app is optimized for iOS and iPadOS, allowing you to use it on your tablet as well. It's hosted on the App Store, so your device will keep CyberGhost up-to-date at all times, providing optimal performance.

The only requirement is to have an iPhone running iOS 13.2 or later. If you haven't updated in a while, go to Settings > General > Software Update. If there's anything pending, we recommend you update your device before you proceed with the steps below.

In this guide, we'll teach you how to install CyberGhost VPN on your iPhone (iOS) or iPad (iPadOS), with helpful screenshots to explain every step of the way.
