PUBG 1.0 Update For iOS

Highlights of the Story

  • Previously, only Android alternatives were available
  • Now, iOS users can enjoy the PUBG 1.0 update as well
  • A simple trick of changing the location works
  • VPN services can be used as well to play the game on iOS

As sideloading is not possible on iOS, Apple users could not get around the PUBG ban. The iOS security and restriction protocols do not allow this sideloading of APK and OBB files that Android users could. Jailbroken Apple devices are definitely an exception here. However, there is a workaround without the need of jailbreaking your iOS device.

To be specific, there are three ways of downloading and installing PUBG on iOS. One requires you to change the location of your country while the other via using VPN services and the final one by getting the Korean version of PUBG. Here are the steps to go about both these options.

How To Download PUBG 1.0 Update On iOS?

PUBG has risen to its popularity as the best battle royale game out there because of the addictive gameplay and visual aesthetics. However, the ban has caused many teenagers to look for alternatives and some do not even want to move on from their beloved game.

One other reason why people need to find an alternative to play the game is because of the amount of money they have spent on it. Professional PUBG players, YouTubers and many serious gamers have spent loads of money on the game. This ban was the biggest disappointment for such players. Therefore, these steps are very important for such iOS users to get back in the scene.

Method 1: Country Change

Method 2: VPN Services

Some people cannot play the game due to network provider restrictions. In such cases, a VPN server is the way to go. Although the connection might be weak and unstable, it will allow you to at least play your favorite game. However, keep in mind that there will be network lags and a big change to get banned from the game.

  1. Download a VPN client like the Panda VPN.
  2. Create accounts and login to your Client app.
  3. Now select USA servers from the list of servers and tap on connect.
  4. Keep the VPN connection as long as you want to play the game, and else you may get disconnected from the game.

Method 3: Downloading PUBG Korean Version

It is important to note that only the global version of PUBG is banned in India. This gives you a chance to download and enjoy the Korean version of the game.

The steps are as follows:

  1. Navigate yourself to changing the country as mentioned in Method 1.
  2. Now change the country to South Korea and provide necessary details.
  3. Search for PUBG and install the Korean version of PUBG mobile.
  4. Now you can play the game without any issues or the requirements of a VPN server.

However, the problem with this method is that you have to start from scratch. This is because in order to play the Korean version, you have to download a brand new account. Your old PUBG account will not work. This will definitely be a loss of progress but safer and more reliable than using a VPN.
