What’s cooler than playing one of the best battle royale games on mobile? Playing the new bits of one of the best battle royale games on mobile before everyone else. Which is probably why you want to know how to download the PUBG Mobile beta version onto your iPhone, iPad, or Android device.
The beta version is the testing ground for all the incoming content in the mobile version of the original battle royale. You’ll be able to play new maps, experience new content, and have your say on what works and what doesn’t. It’s a pretty cool opportunity, so it’s no surprise that you want to know how to take part.
Which is why we’ve written this guide. We’ve broken down all the steps you need to take to get the PUBG Mobile Beta onto your smartphone or tablet. Bear in mind that there are some steps here that could leave your tech open to malicious software, so be sure you know what you’re doing before you decide to take the plunge.
How to get the PUBG Mobile beta on iOS and Android:
First you’re going to want to click on this link in Safari on your iPhone or iPad. Make sure you’re using Safari – third party browsers aren’t going to work here. Then, click on the link at the top of that page that says “Download iOS Version”.
When you’ve done that, head to your home screen and find the app icon that’s just appeared. Tap on that to start the downloading the beta. It’s important to make sure you’ve got enough space – you’re going to need at least 2GB – if you don’t, the app won’t download properly and you’ll have to start the process again.
When the app’s downloaded, there’s still a few things you’ll need to do. Head to Settings > General > Device Management. There you’ll see an Enterprise App called Plasma Computing Group, Inc. Tap on that.
On the next page you’ll see a list of apps. It’s a short list. It’s one app. It’s the PUBG Mobile Beta. You’ll also see some blue text saying “Trust Plasma Computing Group, Inc”. Tap on that and you’ll get a pop-up box asking you if you really want to do it. Tap “Trust”.
Head back to your home screen, tap on the icon for the PUBG Mobile Beta and the app will launch. It’ll start downloading some more resources. Once it’s finished doing that the app will restart. Bear in mind you are going to need an Invitation Code to actually get into the beta content though.
For Android users, things are a bit easier. Click here to get the 32x version of the beta and click here to get the 64x version. You’ll need to make sure your device is set up to download apps from non-Google Play sources.
To do that in Android 8.0 and newer, go to Settings > Apps & Notifications > Advanced > Special App Access and then tap Install unknown apps. Pick the browser you want to use to download the apps and you’re good to go.
Obviously there are loads of different versions of Android out there, and the process differs between them, so if you get stuck you’re going to have to Google the answer. It’s going to be something pretty similar to what’s above though.
To get a code for the beta servers you’ll need to have the full game installed. Head to the Events page from the global menu – it should be in the recommended tab. There you’ll see an option to generate a code. Tap on it and, all being well, you’ll get the code you need to participate in the beta build.
