Mobile Legends: Bang Bang (MLBB) is one of the most popular mobile MOBA titles in the world right now. The game was released back in 2017 and has since gone on to accumulate more than one billion downloads worldwide across Android and iOS.

You can download the game through the application stores on your device. If you are on iOS and are facing trouble getting into the game, esports.gg has got you covered.

How to download MLBB on iOS

If you are an iOS user, there is only one way to download the game on your Apple device, and that is through the App Store. To download the game, follow these steps:

  • Open the App Store on your device.
  • At the top of the screen, search for Mobile Legends: Bang Bang or MLBB.
  • You will be able to see the game in the list of options.
  • Click on it and press download to install MLBB on your iOS device.

MLBB was released back in 2016 and has since received multiple content updates and graphical improvements. Thus, the game won’t be able to run on older devices. The minimum requirements for MLBB on iOS are as follows:

  • iPhone and iPod Touch: iOS 10.0 or later
  • iPad: iPadOS 10.0 or later

Can you play League of Legends on your Apple device?

Mobile Legends has raised a lot of eyebrows over the years for allegedly copying League of Legends. And no, it's not just the name which is similar but several aspects of the game as well, according to many players and even Riot Games.

In fact, Riot Games is also angry at this and has taken MOONTON to court twice in 2017 and 2022 for ripping off League of Legends. The 2022 lawsuit was dismissed by a California court because it felt that the suit should be filed in China as that is a more appropriate place for it.

Nonetheless, the legal trouble hasn’t stopped MLBB from cementing itself as the leading mobile MOBA in the market. The game has also developed a huge esports scene which constantly clocks more than a million peak viewers, per Esports Charts.

Currently, the game is more popular in regions of SEA but MOONTON has been attempting to change that over the past year. The company has been making investments in localized content and esports events in Latin America, MENA, and also North America.

With Riot’s mobile MOBA, Wild Rift, not being the success many anticipated it to be, the question remains if MLBB will go on to become a truly global title.
