I'm sure these might be methods on changing your skin, but the must known way for non jail breakers goes as following: Iexplorer is the method to change your skin for devices that have not been modified in other words jailbroken. You have to download a skin off a minecraft skin website eg the skindex, I can't go into full detail on the actual tutorial because I haven't actually changed my skin with Iexplorer because I have jailbroken my I devices.
For jailbroken devices: Go into cydia and search in ifile buy the app or use the alternative method to get it free look on YouTube as I'm not giving how to do it away as you should just buy it. Moving on you will also need safari downloader and you want to go on the skindex again and download the skin of your choice. Once downloaded click with open with ifile and I can give a tutorial on this as I've done this before, next press edit and go to the clipboard and press cut. Then find your minecraft app and go into minecraft.peapp or something like that, press edit and the clipboard again and press paste and then overwrite. That's it your done hope this helps.
