How to Download Mods in Minecraft Pocket Edition; Steps to Install Mods

In Minecraft, Modding is one of the most important parts, while modding on the PC version is fairly straightforward, dealing with Minecraft Pocket Edition on mobile can be a little bit tricky.

It is best to read the fine print instructions in any mod before downloading. They might have custom crafting recipes, require enabling experimental mode, or force you to travel to specific locations to get the mod functioning properly.

For example, if you are installing a car mod, you need to read up their guide on how to build a car.

Furthermore, not all mods and add-ons will work with all versions of the game, and some mods that are still floating around the net haven’t been updated so they may not work well with Minecraft PE.

It is recommended to start with a new world with any MCPE add-on, as the mod might make substantial changes to your game (or even be incompatible with your current seed).

Here’s how to download mods in Minecraft Pocket Edition with a third-party app

Go to the App Store/Google Play Store and look for “AddOns for Minecraft PE (MCPE)”.
Open the App after the installation is completed.
Select the desired mod and select “Copy to Minecraft.”

To create a New World in Minecraft using mods, players need to do the following steps after download and install mods.

  • Play > Create New > Create New World
  • Scroll down to the Behavior Packs or Resource Packs section on the left panel. Select either of them, pick a mod then tap+ below it. Select Activate to mark it for activation in your new world.
  • Tap Create in the panel to the left to start a new world with mod activated.

How to install Minecraft Pocket Edition mods manually

The list of available mods through the app is much smaller compared to what you can get by yourself. is the main page for downloading mods for Minecraft PE.

iOS Device

Players can browse for any add-ons they need, then download them to their phone through the Safari browser. When browsing, keep in mind that you are specifically looking for files with .McWorld, .McPack, and .McAddon. Only those formats would work on your iOS device.

Just skip the ads on the download page, choose the green download icon with the file size, and select “open in Minecraft” when it completes. The downloaded mods begin to load when you see the “import started” message appears at the top of your device.

Android Device

Manually installing mods on Android works almost the same as in iOS, however, you have to download the FX File Explorer app first (if you don’t have any File Explorer app on your device). File management apps like this allow you to find and apply your mod much faster.

After installing the file management app, just browse and download the mods and texture packs you want that use the .mcpack or .mcworld file extension. Afterward, open the downloaded files using file explorer and import them to Minecraft Pocket Edition.
