All the links provided in articles are of android app only. So where is BHIM iOS app and how can you download and install it.

BHIM app is based on UPI (Unified payment interface), a digital bank to bank money transaction system created by NPCI (National Payments Corporation of India).

NPCI as of now has not published any specification for UPI interaction on iOS devices and hence it is difficult to build an iOS app to support UPI interface as of now.

But given the push on UPI and its growing popularity, NPCI will soon launch BHIM mobile app on iOS as well.

So for now - there is currently no BHIM iOS app. And no, there is no UPI app currently for iOS.
