PUBG Mobile for iOS requires a minimum iPhone 5S with iOS 9 or higher.

  1. Log in once to the regular version of PUBG Mobile via Facebook if you haven't already.
  2. Click this link from your device. A screen will ask if the link can open in iTunes. Press “Install” and the download will begin.
  3. You may need to tap the gray icon on your home screen to get past the “waiting” step. This process takes a while, so we'd recommend plugging your device into a charger and doing something else for a bit. When it's ready, the icon will properly appear.
  4. Upon first launch, you'll receive a warning about the app potentially being unsafe. At this point go to Settings > General > Device Management > PUBG Mobile and select “trust.” If you've installed other PUBG Mobile betas in the past you may be able to skip this step.
  5. Launch the app as normal and log in with the Facebook account.

Even though it's classified as a major version update, PUBG Mobile 0.10.0 doesn't feature much in the way of new content. In case you're wondering, it certainly doesn't offer an early look at the snow map everyone's been so curious about. With that unfortunate news out of the way, here's a summary of the major highlights.

  • MK47 Mutant: This gun has been in the Xbox and PC versions for a while now, so it's nice to see it finally arrive on smaller screens. It's a versatile assault rifle with a 20-bullet clip and multiple firing modes.
  • Laser Sight Attachment: Shoot down enemies with laser precision with this sight. The MK47 is one of many guns that can take advantage of it.
  • New control settings: Customize your screen layout with a series of presets and variables.
  • Additional chat options: Use dozens of scripted text and voice dialogue selections to communicate with teammates. Options are classified under tactics, movement and discussion.
  • A bunch of in-game outfits.
  • Misc. bug fixes.

An exact release date for PUBG Mobile 0.10.0 is not yet known, but most recent betas have generally lasted a week or two. If these preliminary patch notes don't warrant the effort of installing a seperate app, it won't be long before everyone gets to use them in a more polished form without restriction.

PUBG Mobile is available now on Android and iOS.
