Setapp is now available on iOS. This means that you can access the products available through the app subscription service on your iPhone. There are currently eight apps available.
Opening Setapp for iOS on iPhone
First of all, you need an active Setapp subscription which gives you access to multiple devices, called “seats” by the service. Once done, open the Setapp app on your Mac. There is now a new “ Available in iOS ” tab at the bottom. It shows the apps you access on your iPhone through your Setapp subscription.
Do not click “Install” as this will download it directly to your Mac. Instead, click on the name / description of the app. You then get an option for the iOS version.
Scan QR codes to access
The first step is to use your iPhone’s camera to read a QR code provided by Setapp. Scan the code and you are taken to the App Store where you can download the app.
After the download is complete, you may need to go through some app-specific settings, such as notifications. When it’s done, go back to Setapp on your Mac. Tap “Done” under the first QR code and click “Unlock Full Version”.
You have a second QR code to scan. If your new app is still open, swipe up to return to the Home screen and reopen the camera. Scan the second QR code.
This will give you the subscription you are entitled to with Setapp. You now have full access on Mac and iPhone.
