    A non-jailbroken iPhone can only download and install software from the Apple App Store. These are software applications that have been reviewed and approved by Apple.

    If you jailbreak your phone, you’ll be able to download and install software from “Cydia” which is basically an unofficial app store. These programs haven’t been reviewed by Apple.

    Generally, I suggest against jailbreaking a phone.

    Is there a specific software program you’re looking to install, or are you having trouble installing Software Apps from the Apple App Store?
