By Alan Ng - Sep 12, 2016

With Minecraft 0.15.0 now out for Minecraft Pocket Edition, it’s time to look ahead to the Minecraft PE 0.16.0 release date on Android and iOS also known as the Minecraft PE 0.16.0 Boss update! This is the page you can keep checking to see what new features will be added to the game, compared to 0.15.0.

Minecraft PE 0.15.0 or the ‘Friendly’ update was one of the biggest patches that we have seen for the mobile version in terms of content.

With that said, it will be interesting to see what Mojang is plotting in terms of new features for Minecraft PE 0.16.0 in the build up to launch.

We already know some of the key Minecraft PE 0.16.0 content though, as we are now up to PE 0.16.0 beta Build 3. Here’s a teaser of the feature list so far so you know what is coming with the next update according to the Minecraft PE GamePedia page:


Ability to customize keyboard controls.
Added search tab to creative inventory (Win 10 only).
Added mouse UI sensitivity slider in VR options (Win 10 Rift only).
New UI for options menu.
More options.
Version exclusive: Toggle Crouch
Added warning before exit the game.

New blocks in Minecraft PE 0.16.0

Prismarine Bricks
Dark Prismarine
Sea Lanterns
Prismarine Crystals
Prismarine Shards
Elder Guardian Spawn Egg

Nether Stars
Wet Sponge


We do know that some potential Minecraft PE 0.16.0 features are going to be in relation to Resource Packs, with the ability to edit every resource in the game. Also Redstone tweaks are coming, with Redstone Dust connecting to any redstone component that has an input – such as Pistons, Dispensers and Droppers.

A good way to keep updated with the release of Minecraft Pocket Edition 0.16.0 is by following Tommaso Checchi’s Twitter account. The Mojang developer announces any breaking Minecraft PE news there first, so we suggest you bookmark that page.

We’ll be keeping you up to date with progress on the final release of Minecraft PE 0.16.0 on iOS and Android so keep checking pack at this page.
