Here’s how you can download and install the extremely popular PUBG Mobile game to your iOS device. Only officially available in China, these relatively simple steps to follow are going to show you exactly how you can grab it on your iPhone, right now.

If you happened to love the PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds game which took a lot of the gaming community by storm last year, then you are likely going to want to play and interact with the official mobile version of the title. Developer, Tencent, has made this available for iOS, but there’s a catch; it’s only available in China. Some changes have been made to the game to make it more efficient and playable on a mobile device but it’s a genuinely great attempt to port the official PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds experience to mobile. Let’s dive in and take a look at the steps.

Step 1: First and foremost, as the app is only available to download in China, you are going to need to change your location/region to China. Launch the App Store and tap on your avatar from the Today tab. Once loaded, select the cell at the top which has your name and email address in.

Step 2: You should now find yourself on the Account page. Tap in the Country/Region cell and change the entry to China. Make sure all address and billing information (as None) is filled in accordingly and then save to exit once the changes have been made.

Step 3: Now, once you are back in the App Store, use the dedicated Search functionality to search for the PUBG title. This will bring up the game as it’s pulling from Apple’s Chinese store.

Step 4: Download the app to your device just like you would with any other app from the App Store. Wait patiently for it to download and install on the device.

Step 5: Once downloaded, launch by tapping on the icon from the Home screen and benefit from all of the game-playing goodness that you now have at your fingertips.

That’s about it. You can revert your App Store’s region/country back to what it was before you changed it to China for downloading this app.

Now that you have it on your device, you could be prompted to create a WeChat, or similar account in order to continue playing. But that’s a small price to pay to get one of the best games that everyone is talking about right now. Enjoy that action.
