The iOS version of Battlegrounds Mobile India is nowhere to be seen, despite the fact that the game was recently published for Android handsets. So, when will Apple iPhone users be able to play this replacement for PUBG Mobile India? Here’s what we know so far.
Battlegrounds Mobile India, the successor to the popular battle royale game PUBG Mobile (which was banned in the country nine months ago), was released a few days ago and has already racked up millions of downloads on the Google Play Store. Players using an Apple iPhone, on the other hand, have been left out of the fun, first with the debut of Battlegrounds Mobile India’s early access beta testing last month, and then with the game’s official launch.
While Android users can download and play Battlegrounds Mobile India directly from the Google Play Store, iOS users will not be able to play the older PUBG Mobile game because it is banned, nor will they be able to download the new Battlegrounds Mobile India game because it has not yet been released on the App Store.
Here’s what we know about Krafton’s Battlegrounds Mobile India’s likely release date on iOS devices:
When will Battlegrounds Mobile for iOS be released in India?
Back in May, Krafton announced that pre-registrations for the Android edition of Battlegrounds Mobile India would be open on the Play Store. There was no indication of any early access testing for the iOS version of the game at the time, despite the fact that it had already surpassed 10 million downloads on the Play Store. Unfortunately, as DNA India points out, there is no word on when the game would be available for iPhone users, citing gamers such as Abhijeet Andhare (also known as Ghatak) and Kronten Gaming as saying that the iOS version of Battlegrounds Mobile India will not be launched anytime soon.
Data transmission in Battlegrounds Mobile India
In other recent Battlegrounds Mobile India news, the game’s developers have announced that the data transfer facility designed to let PUBG Mobile players move their data from the old, banned game to the successor, Battlegrounds Mobile India, will be turned off. This implies that gamers who have not yet completed the process of transferring their data from the previous game should do so as soon as possible, as the firm has stated that it has no intentions to bring the service back at a later date. As long as they are running Android Lollipop (5.1) or higher on a recently launched mobile device, Android devices with 2GB of RAM and over 700 MB of free space should be able to download the game.
