Minecraft Is Coming to iPhone & iPad
Unofficial iOS versions have been created by clever fans, but none of them offer an experience as complete as the PC/browser version. Mojang told Gamasutra that one member of their team, Aron Neiminen, is currently working exclusively on porting the game to iOS, with an iTunes release targeted for later this year. This couldn’t have been a hard decision for the fledgling compay; a touchscreen operating system seems like a natural fit for the indie game sensation.
Mojang says that the iOS version of Minecraft won’t get every single update that the original version gets, but it will get those features that make the most sense for iPhones and iPads. Being able to Mine on the go will no doubt add legions of new fans for the game — especially if Mojang prices it competitively.
