How to download and install after a ban

For the past 15 days, I’ve seen Google Trends and Twitter full of posts about downloading BGMI on iOS after the ban. Even some are looking for a way to download BGMI on iOS without App Store. PUBG BGMI is the Indian version of PUBG Mobile, which was released a year ago after the ban on official PUBG Mobile.

As a concern for users’ privacy and personal data, PUBG Mobile was banned in India along with hundreds of apps and games. However, the developers of the game have managed to design a new version of the game called BGMI (Battleground Mobile India) for the Indian audience, given the popularity of the game in India.

Unfortunately, within a year of BGMI for Indian users, the game was banned again in India when the Indian government removed the game from the Google Play Store and App Store on July 28, 2022.
