You may have seen or heard of modded APK before.
But what does it mean???
Just before we dash into what a modded APK is, we will need to take the steps one after the other.
Let’s discuss what APK means first.
It is easier to move from there and for us to be on the same page.
APK is a file used to install mobile applications.
It can also be described as a written technical language designed to import a technical function on mobile devices.
When you need a particular mobile app or function to be on your mobile device, all you need to do is to get the APK and install it on the mobile device and it will be available.
An important thing you need to know about APK is that it comes in versions.
So, not all APK will work on all mobile devices.
So they are designed based on two things.
First is the operating system of mobile devices.
For instance, the Android mobile device runs on a different operating system compared to Apple mobile devices.
That means APK that works on Android may not work on Apple mobile devices.
The second thing has to do with the versions of APK made for an operating system.
Each operating system has versions usually differentiated by better productivity and advancement.
For instance, the APK made for Android version 9 may not work on Android devices of 8 or less.
Those versions will not be able to power the functions.
It is in line with this version of APK that I will like to explain what modded APK means.
What a modded APK is in simple terms
In a simple explanation, it means the modified version of the APK.
What do we mean by a modified version of the APK?
It simply shows that something has been altered in the written technical language or program.
There is a change that has been administered.
In practical terms, it means that the APK may not fit into a particular function or device, but once it is modified, it may work on such devices.
This is the commonest reason people use modified APK.
It is either so it can be installed on a device it was not originally made for or to accommodate a particular function it was not designed for.
So, someone can get an APK for the Android 9 version, tweak it to work for a higher Android version.
Once he knows what to touch in the APK file, he will have his way.
Truth be told, if anyone will do this, he must be technically sound.
This is terrain for the technical gurus.
He will need to understand the technical languages and what they stand for before editing them.
Even the new app upgrade we always have from the app stores work in the same way.
They don’t change the whole APK most of the time, they simply edit the file to allow for more changes that fit into the modern-day activities.
That is also a modification of APK.
That doesn’t mean they don’t build the app all over sometimes when they release a new version of the app.
