Apex Legends Mobile is about to bring Battle Royale to phones on May 17
After a long wait, Respawn Entertainment has announced that Apex Legends Mobile is coming to Android and iOS on May 17.
The successful Battle Royale, released in 2019, has since made its way to all consoles, including the Nintendo Switch. The mobile experience shouldn’t be too different from the console and PC versions, but like other mobile shooters, concessions are likely to be made for the very different platform. This is a version made specifically for mobile devices, so there will be no cross-play with other versions.
However, there are some things we do know. There are currently 18 legends in the full version, but mobile will release 10. If the limited regional release was any indication, we’ll be able to play Bloodhound, Gibraltar, Lifeline, Wraith, Bangalore, Octane, Mirage, Pathfinder, and Caustic. . It will also feature new mobile-exclusive modes like Team Deathmatch and a reworked mobile-only UI.
While Apex Legends may be a graphically intensive PC game, Apex Legends Mobile is set up to work with older iOS devices. These are the minimum requirements:
- iPhone 6S or later
- OS version: 11.0 or later
- Processor: A9
- 4 GB of free space
- At least 2 GB of RAM
Apex Legends will join a series of shooters and battle royales that have been ported to mobile or are in development for mobile. Fortnite and Call of Duty: Mobile are the obvious contenders, but Battlefield and Rainbow Six Siege are coming to mobile as well.

In the meantime, you can pre-register on the official website or through the App Store, which will unlock rewards at launch.
