Have you ever wanted to download torrent on iPhone? Did you feel the single tear going down to the bottom of your face as you were told how to do that?
It probably wasn’t that dramatic but considering iPhones are really popular, it’s sort of sad there doesn’t seem to be an easy way how to enjoy torrenting on them. Going for the jailbreak might be an option but if you really value your phone, you probably do not want to go through with it.
This guide explains how to download a torrent file to iPhone without jailbreak but it works for iPad, any other iOS device and in fact anything else with an internet browser.
In this guide, we will make use of service called Bitport.io. Bitport is defined as a cloud torrent downloader. It sounds horrible as a definition but don’t be scared. It is a torrent client, rather than anything else. The real difference is its utility and the way it handles torrent files. We will go through the whole process step by step but you should understand the basics before we start.
Bitport runs in any web browser so you don’t need to install anything to use it. Once you add your torrent file or magnet link to Bitport, downloading starts on a server somewhere far away from your connection. The downloaded file is then transferred to your personal Bitport cloud from where you can download it to your device or just stream it. Now we know the basics so let’s start!

Step 1: Bitport registration:
Go and register at Bitport.io. Once you fill in your email and password you will receive the validation message to your email. Go click it and you are ready to use Bitport.

After you log in Bitport, you will see the Dashboard page. Paste the previously copied magnet link by tapping and holding the “Paste a magnet link here” line. The link is pasted and you can tap the Add new torrent button.
Step 4: Downloading the torrent:
Once you’ve added your torrent, download to your cloud will start. The download speed is usually somewhere between fast a very very fast. When the file is downloaded, it is transferred to your cloud.

Stay anonymous while torrenting:
Downloading with BitTorrent is generally frowned upon. Even if technically speaking there is nothing wrong with it. This means it is a good idea to stay off the grid.
