Minecraft Earth

The new mobile game Minecraft Earth has just been released for players in the United States. It’s a fun game that might just be the next Pokemon Go. But will it work with your phone? Unfortunately, the AR requirement is causing a lot of issues for some people.  Read on for details about iOS and Android compatibility updates. The first section will discuss iOS compatibility and the second section will discuss Android compatibility.


iOS Compatibility Details

According to the Apple App Store,  an iOS device must have iOS 12.0 or later to work with the game. It’s compatible with the following phones and devices:

“iPhone 6S, iPhone 6S Plus, iPhone SE, iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, iPhone X, iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, iPhone XR, iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, iPhone 11 Pro Max, iPad Pro (12.9-inch), iPad Pro (12.9-inch) Wi-Fi + Cellular, iPad Pro (9.7‑inch), iPad Pro (9.7-inch) Wi‑Fi + Cellular, iPad (5th generation), iPad (5th generation) Wi‑Fi + Cellular, iPad Pro (12.9‑inch) (2nd generation), iPad Pro (12.9‑inch) (2nd generation) Wi‑Fi + Cellular, iPad Pro (10.5‑inch), iPad Pro (10.5-inch) Wi‑Fi + Cellular, iPad (6th generation), iPad Wi-Fi + Cellular (6th generation), iPad Pro (11-inch), iPad Pro (11-inch) Wi-Fi + Cellular, iPad Pro (12.9-inch) (3rd generation), iPad Pro (12.9-inch) (3rd generation) Wi-Fi + Cellular, iPad mini (5th generation), iPad mini (5th generation) Wi-Fi + Cellular, iPad Air (3rd generation), iPad Air (3rd generation) Wi-Fi + Cellular, iPad (7th generation), iPad (7th generation) Wi-Fi + Cellular, and iPod touch (7th generation).”

In addition, phones and devices must support AR. The following are listed as supporting AR and thus would be compatible with the game.

  • iPhone 11 Pro Max
  • iPhone 11
  • iPhone ten s

  • iPad (5th generation or later)

iPod:

  • iPod touch (7th generation)

Android Compatibility Details

According to the Goole Play listing, the game is only compatible with phones that have Android 8.0 and up. The listing isn’t quite as helpful as Apple’s because it doesn’t list specific phones that do work. However, Minecraft does link to a list of Android phones that support AR (ARCore), which is a requirement for playing the game. In order to support ARCore, phones must have Android 7.0 or later (but Minecraft Earth requires Android 8.0 and up), the device must have originally shipped with Google Play Store, and it must have Internet access.

Here is Minecraft’s official list of phones that are NOT compatible, just recently updated: 

  • Blackshark Shark 1S
  • Google Pixel
  • Google Pixel XL
  • Huawei Nexus 6P
  • LGE Nexus 5X
  • LGE LG G6

  • Samsung Galaxy A8+(2018)
  • Samsung Galaxy J7
  • Samsung Galaxy A30
  • Samsung Galaxy J5 Pro
  • Samsung Galaxy A70
  • Xiaomi Redmi  Note  7 Pro

Some of the phones listed above supported ARCore but were still not compatible because their performance was poor, according to Play Minecraft Earth.

Players have talked on discussion forums about also having issues with the following phones:

  • Motorola G6 Play
  • Galaxy A70
  • Galaxy S8 Active
  • Razer gaming phone
  • LG K30

In addition, this is an early release of the game, so bugs are still going to happen from time to time. If you’re getting a bug, it doesn’t mean your phone isn’t compatible. It might just mean that the app is still working on some issues.
