The Minecraft Pocket Edition used to be the version of Minecraft designed for mobile phones and tablets. Today, a standard version of Minecraft (often called Minecraft: Bedrock Edition) is used on mobile phones and game consoles. This is the same version as Minecraft Windows 10 Edition. Most games and apps release updates to fix bugs and security vulnerabilities. Minecraft releases often add new features to the game. For example, the Minecraft 1.15 update added bees and honeycomb blocks to the game. This wikiHow teaches you how to update Minecraft on mobile phones and tablets.
