Minecraft coming to iPhone, iPad

iOS edition to be released this year, dev confirms

One of the biggest PC indie releases of recent years, Minecraft, is to be released officially on iPhone and iPad, it's been confirmed.

Developer Mojang told Gamasutra that the iOS version of the hit PC game is currently in the beta stages and a full release is planned for sometime this year.


Markus Persson, founder of Mojang confirmed that the iOS edition will not receive every update that the PC original gets, but rather will be granted those features that "make sense" for the touch-screen devices.

Minecraft has seen numerous unofficial releases on iPhone and iPad so far, but this is the first official edition from the Mojang team.
