Just hours ago, we were the first ones to report that the Minecraft PE 0.10.0 beta had gone live on Android. Unfortunately though, we have since discovered that the beta appears to be exclusive to Android, meaning that those who are waiting for a Minecraft PE 0.10.0 iOS release date are going to be very disappointed.
In a surprise turn of events, Mojang has now started the beta for the next major version of Minecraft PE but have used Google’s social platform Google+ to do so.
As far as we’re aware, you can only get into the beta if you have a Google+ account and once you have joined the official Minecraft beta community page set up by Mojang, you’ll be able to find the Minecraft PE 0.10.0 beta download link here.
A Tweet from one member of the development team though brings bad news for iOS. It looks like not for the first time, Android users are getting prioritized and we have a feeling it is once again due to Apple’s review process on the App Store.
With Google, they have no such problems of course with instant approval from Google, which is why you can enter the beta right now on an Android phone or tablet.
Is this harsh on iOS users though, or do you blame Apple for the lack of beta on your platform? Mojang has made no secret of their frustration on why it always takes Apple longer to push out Minecraft PE updates on iOS, then it does with Android.
For now though, the beta is only on Android so give us your thoughts on this below. Are you feeling a little jealous right now?
