Apex Legends will release on mobile devices soon. Respawn Entertainment is reportedly teaming up with Tencent to make that happen.
According to a report by IGN India, the mobile version of Apex Legends will launch in the third quarter of this year. This will be after the soft launch of the mobile port in China, which will happen in the next 3 to 4 months, according to video game industry analyst Daniel Ahmad.

In addition, the report from IGN India also revealed some of the minimum spec requirements for the game. For iOS devices, an iPhone 8 or later version will be necessary. As for Android devices, those who own an Android device with Snapdragon 625 or above should be able to run the game. Note that since Apex Legends mobile is still in development, these specs might change before official release.
Besides that, Apex Legends will have a Switch release later next month. The Switch version of the game will launch on 9th March 2021. Switch owners who bought the Season 8 battle pass will get 30 battle pass levels free of charge. Buying the battle pass also entitles players to two weeks of double XP post-launch.
