Playing a Minecraft PE Map You Have Installed

  • This method is not supported by Microsoft, Mojang, Google, Amazon or any device manufacturer.
  • At MCPE HQ we use this method to install Maps on iOS, but provide no support whatsoever to others who chose to do so.
  • This method, although largely harmless, does have you access the file system on your iOS device. Modifying files or folders, or deleting files or folders could harm your device.
