After the ban on PUBG Mobile in India, krafton inc designed a special and new version of the game for Indian players with the new name BGMI (Battlegrounds Mobile India). Recently, BGMI was also banned by the Indian government on July 28.
You heard right.
It’s been a year since the release of BGMI. However, the makers are in trouble again because the Indian government has banned the game and removed it from the Google Play Store and App Store.
Why BGMI Banned in India?
The official said concerns were raised about the risk of Krafton sharing Indian users’ private data with foreign countries, particularly China, and its ownership patterns, as an entity controlled by China’s Tencent is one of Krafton’s largest shareholders.
As the game is no longer available on the Google Play Store and App Store, players are looking for a way to download BGMI on iOS after Ban in India.
Android users can easily get BGMI APK on Android, install the game on their device and enjoy the game.
The tech giant Google also confirmed the news that they have removed BGMI from the Google Play Store following a government order.
While there are still rumors in India as to whether the BGMI is completely banned in India or not, many players wrote on Twitter that they can still access the game, but some users claim that they cannot see BGMI in the App Store or Google Play Store.
Can I download BGMI on IOS after Ban?
Since the game BGMI is not available on App Store, you cannot download BGMI on iPhone after Ban in India. However, you can download the PUBG Mobile version of the game on your iOS device using VPN. We have already prepared the guide for this in our previous article.

Google also responded:
“After receiving the order, according to the established process, we notified the affected developer and blocked access to the app that remained available on the Play Store in India.”
According to Twitter user Aditya Kalra:
“A source says Krafton’s BGMI game is banned under Section 69A of the IT Act, often used to ban Chinese apps due to national security concerns. Krafton shares fell 9 pc in morning trading in South Korea.”
