Does Minecraft Earth Work on My iPhone? Is My iPhone Compatible?

Minecraft Earth requires IOS 10 or greater. This is because Minecraft Earth requires ARKit. ARKit is responsible for AR in Minecraft Earth and only works on the latest versions of IOS.

Here is a list of supported iPhones:

  • iPhone 11 
  • iPhone X
  • iPhone 8
  • iPhone 8 Plus
  • iPhone 7
  • iPhone 7 Plus
  • iPhone 6s
  • iPhone 6s Plus
  • iPhone SE

If you have a device listed above but think your device isn’t supported, then follow the steps below.

Check your IOS version:

  1. Go to settings
  2. Tap on ‘General’
  3. Tap on ‘About’

If your IOS version is lower than IOS 10, then you need to update your device. Some older iPhone models cannot update to newer IOS versions. However, it’s worth checking if you have any pending updates.

To check for IOS updates:

  1. Go to settings
  2. Tap on ‘General’
  3. Tap on ‘Software Update’

If your phone updates to IOS 10+, then you’re phone now supports Minecraft Earth. If not, then
