We have some great news for iOS players of Minecraft Pocket Edition now. As most of you know, Mojang has been beta testing on Android for quite some time.
Now though, it looks like we are coming to the end of that testing which means that the iPhone version is almost ready to go.
Developer Tommaso Checchi has now been confident enough to give out a Minecraft PE 0.12.0 iOS download date of September 8 – so around five days of waiting to go, which isn’t long at all.
Above is the confirmation of this, although you should bear in mind that Mojang may still not commit to this date given the random nature of Minecraft when it comes to the Pocket Edition and discovering new bugs.
Also contained in the Tweet above, is a confirmation image that the new Minecraft PE 0.12.0 update for iOS has already been submitted to Apple’s App Store – which is great news.
Hopefully there will not be any further issues in the build-up to this date. The developer wouldn’t have mentioned a date publicly if he wasn’t confident that the team could fulfil it – having the new version already submitted is a great indication that everything will go smoothly.
Are you happy about this after a long wait? We’ll update you here if anything changes between now and September 8.
