Apex legends Mobile Release Date
In October 2019, EA announced that a mobile version of Apex Legends is targeted to release in 2022. The release date since then has been adjusted.

Will Apex Legends be available on iPhone and Android?
Although there is no official confirmation on the official release date of the mobile version of the game, it has been confirmed that Apex Legends will be available on both IOS and Android.
EA games CEO also highlighted ‘ Mobile, in particular, is a category that spans across all of that”. Months later and we now have a clear picture of what devices will be compatible.
You will need an A11 bionic chip on your Apple device to run the game. This means iPhone 8 or anything above will be able to play the game. Meanwhile, Android users will need a Snapdragon 625 processor or better.
As it is a technical game with a number of huge maps, it’s a tall order for old mobile devices to run a demanding game.
Given that we’re still months away from the game’s release, these plans could change as developing countries.
