How to download Minecraft for free on iPhone – Download Minecraft on iPhone

Given that, as already said, download for free on iPhone the original version of Minecraft is not feasible (unless special promotions in progress or exploit doubtful methods) as it is a paid game (when I’m writing this ‘article, for iOS has a cost of € 7.99), we try to understand, as anticipated at the beginning, how to make the purchase and download from the App Store. In this way, if you need to think again, you’ll know how to proceed.

How to download Minecraft for free on iPhone

To be able to download Minecraft on your iPhone, the first essential step you need to accomplish is to grab the device, access the home screen (the screen where you find all the applications installed on iOS) and tap on the App Store icon (the one with the letter “A” in the middle and the blue background), the official store of applications on devices based on the mobile operating system of the Cupertino company.

Once the App Store screen is displayed, step on the Search icon located at the bottom right, type Minecraft in the search field at the top and then press the Search button attached to the virtual keyboard. Then select Minecraft from the list of games and apps that is shown to you, stop on 7.99 euros and confirm your willingness to proceed with the purchase of the game.

Finally, type the password of your Apple ID or place your finger on the Touch ID sensor (if your device supports it) or, again, use the Face ID (if you have an iPhone X) in order to start the procedure for download. If you want, you can speed up the execution of all these steps by connecting directly to the App Store section dedicated to Minecraft by tapping here from your iPhone.

Once you have completed the download and installation process of the game, press the Open button appeared on the screen to immediately start having fun with Minecraft on your iDevice. Alternatively, you can start the game by pressing the icon that was added to the iPhone home screen.

Finally, I point out that in addition to being paid the download of the game are also some additional content (not mandatory) attached to it that can be unlocked through in-app purchases. If desired, it is therefore possible to buy skins, textures, worlds and maso-ups. To do that, just go to the Shop section of the game on the main Minecraft screen. Among the extra goings are however also available free content.

In all cases, for their download you need a Microsoft account (if you do not already have one and do not know how to create it you can read my tutorial on the subject to find out how to proceed) and access the game.

How to download Minecraft for free on iPhone – Free alternatives to Minecraft

Since, as already mentioned in the previous lines, at the moment it is not possible to download Minecraft for free on iPhone, if you do not intend to spend money to buy the iDevice version of the famous game you can turn to valid alternatives completely free (or anyway free-to-play) and deserving to be tried at least once.

Clearly, just as alternatives these may not go to resume in all respects the original game and compared to the latter I can present shortcomings and / or imperfections but if you do not mind in a particular way they can still be excellent solutions . Below are therefore shown the games “sauce” Minecraft that in my opinion you should try on your iPhone if you are looking for something similar to the famous title.

How to download Minecraft for free on iPhone – Block Craft 3D

The first of the free alternatives to Minecraft that I suggest you consider is Block Craft 3D. This is a beautiful free-to-play Minecraft clone, which can then be downloaded and played at no cost but provides some optional paid content (eg gems or the ability to fly your character) to unlock through in-app purchases.

The aim of the game is to build various objects and buildings to give life to your village and make it develop as much as possible. The graphic resumes in full that of Minecraft: it is three-dimensional, “squared” and is sufficiently fluid.

How to download Minecraft for free on iPhone – Multicraft

Another free game that you can download as an alternative to the “real” Minecraft is MultiCraft. It resumes in all respects graphics and dynamics of the title of Microsoft and Mojang. You can choose whether to play in creative mode, playing the role of a builder, or whether to play in survival mode, instead dressing those of a unscrupulous hunter who will do everything to survive.

For the rest, the game has nothing to envy to the original if not the presence perhaps a little excessive advertising content. However, considering that it is a completely free title (there are not even the already mentioned in-app purchases), it is certainly worth trying.

How to download Minecraft for free on iPhone – The Blockheads

Another free alternative game to Minecraft that I recommend you try is The Blockheads. The title is a sort of hybrid between the title Mojang and Terraria, another famous open-world game in which you have to explore the surrounding environment, build objects and protect yourself from enemies. Even in this case, free-to-play mechanics are provided.

The graphics, however, is almost identical to that of Minecraft but the visual is in 2D, so only and exclusively vertical scrolling.

How to download Minecraft for free on iPhone – World of Cubes Survival Craft

The graphics are slightly more, let’s say, modern compared to the classic Minecraft but World of Cubes Surivavl Craft still manages to establish itself as a free alternative (but with in-app purchases to unlock additional content) to the latter, also because the game mode it’s practically the same. In fact, you can create custom worlds and you can access the muliplayer mode while having fun with other online users selected randomly or with friends. You can then explore universes and worlds created by others, you can search for your own maps and much more.

Also worthy of note is the possibility of personalizing your character by choosing from over 100 different skins tracksuits organized by theme. Same goes for the textures, you can choose the one of the various packages available.

How to download Minecraft for free on iPhone – Worldcraft Pocket Edition

Worldcraft Pocket Edition is another sandbox style game that takes the glories of Minecraft. Allows you to play in creative mode or survival and offers good or bad all that you can find in the version, so to speak, original of the game. Even the graphics are practically impeccable.

The only real negative notes are the fact that the game is subject to some lag and that occasionally popping annoying advertisements (which however can be removed in-app purchases). The fact that it is a zero-cost alternative to Minecraft is certainly still interesting.

How to download Minecraft for free on iPhone – Minecraft: Story Mode

In conclusion, I would like to inform you of Minecraft: Story Mode. The game resumes all that is the incredible and fantastic universe of the house title Microsoft and Mojang and presents all the elements of the classic sandobox but it is different from the latter for its being a pre-built adventure that changes depending decisions taken throughout history. The settings are therefore those of the classic Minecraft but the dynamics are very different.

The title was developed by the famous software house Telltale Games, probably best known for The Walking Dead, Tales from the Borderlands, Wolf Among Us or Game of Thrones. It provides free-to-play mechanics.
