The next update for Minecraft Pocket Edition has been submitted for review. This means we should see the update out in one or two weeks, for both iOS and Android. This update was originally intended to be a small patch, but ended up having a lot of new features and tweaks!


  • Signs
  • Armor
    • Applying process is similar to smelting: choose from armour on the left and see a preview of the player on the right

  • The Sky and Clouds (Appearance varies between fast and slow devices)
  • Improved D-pad
  • Design is more blocky and less rounded
  • When in flight mode, there is a “wing” icon on the jump button
