How to Install Lantern on iOS in Restricted Country or Region

Downloading Lantern for iOS requires an AppleID based in an unrestricted country or region. If you currently have a valid payment method with billing address in an unrestricted location, you may simply follow Apple's instructions for updating your AppleID location to that country or region. Otherwise, it will be necessary to create an alternate AppleID using the steps below.

Setup New AppleID in Unrestricted Country or Region

  1. Sign out of iCloud (Data and funds may not transfer to the new account.)
  2. Create a new account
  3. Verify with unlinked email
  4. Choose an unrestricted country.
For more details, see this article from CNET.

Note: Billing details are required, but you may choose any public address (such as a library) in your new Country or Region to proceed. Payment method is not required.
