Though it’s currently stumped by Fortnite on all fronts, PUBG Mobile still boasts quite a large player-base—and there’s more who are just coming into the game. If you’re such the curious gamer captured by what the hype is about and is looking to play the game, you might be wondering if your phone is even capable of launching such a graphics-intensive game, let alone make it playable.
On this post, we break down the bare-minimum (and recommended) system requirements your phone should have in order to play PUBG Mobile. These PUBG Mobile system requirements are for iOS and Android versions of the game.
PUBG Mobile system requirements for Android
If your phone has 2GB RAM or higher and is running some version of Android no earlier than Android 5.1.1, it should be able to play PUBG Mobile quite easily. As of press time, PUBG Mobile claims that it is playable in more than 500 different Android phones.
PUBG Mobile system requirements for iOS
The iOS version of PUBG Mobile is a bit more demanding than its Android counterpart. Essentially, you will need an Apple device that has iOS 9 or later. The device, be it an iPhone or an iPad, needs to be non-jailbroken, or else PUBG Mobile will not even launch. iPhones no older than the iPhone 5s and iPads no older than the iPad Mini 2 or the iPad Air should work just fine.
