Battlegrounds Mobile India, the successor to popular battle royale game PUBG Mobile (which was banned in the country nine months ago) was officially launched a few days ago and it has already seen millions of downloads on the Google Play Store. However, players who own an Apple iPhone have been missing out on the action, first with the launch of the early access beta testing for Battlegrounds Mobile India last month, and thereafter with the official launch of the game.
While Android device owners can already download and play Battlegrounds Mobile India directly from the Google Play Store, iOS gamers can neither play the older PUBG Mobile as it is banned, nor download the new Battlegrounds Mobile India game, as it is not yet launched on the App Store.

Here’s what we know about the possible release date for Krafton’s Battlegrounds Mobile India on iOS devices:
Battlegrounds Mobile India iOS release date
Gamers might recall that Krafton had previously announced that it was opening up pre-registrations for the Android version of Battlegrounds Mobile India on the Play Store back in May. At the time, there was no mention of any early access testing for the iOS version of the game which has already racked up over 10 million downloads on the Play Store. Unfortunately, as DNA India points out, there is no confirmation about the release date for the game for iPhone owners, and cites gamers like Abhijeet Andhare (also known as Ghatak) and Kronten Gaming who have reportedly stated that the iOS version of Battlegrounds Mobile India game is not going to be released in the near future.
Battlegrounds Mobile India data transfer
In other recent news related to Battlegrounds Mobile India, the developers of the game will finally turn off the data transfer tool designed to help PUBG Mobile players bring over their data from the old, banned game to the successor, Battlegrounds Mobile India. This means that gamers who have not yet transferred their data from the old game should definitely complete the process as the company has not announced any plans to bring the service back at a later date. Android devices with 2GB of RAM and over 700 MB of free space should be able to download the game, as long as they are running Android Lollipop (5.1) or higher on a recently released mobile device.
