iOS 13 promises to be an amazing experience for all iPhone and iPad users, but not for PUBG Mobile and Fortnite players. The new iOS version seems to be troublesome a bit to people who are playing those famous battle royale games. As you know, PUBG Mobile is one of the best mobile games for iOS devices. Up to a million players around the world have been engaging in it. The new iOS 13 will bring the new text editing support to the users, and this could have an effect on the controls in the PUBG game.
The text editing support in iOS 13 version is messing up the control operations in the famous games like PUBG or Fortnite. There was even a message from the development team, warning the players not to rush to update their current iOS version to iOS 13 because of a bug that goes against with 3-finger control operation in the games.
The text editing support feature in iOS 13 strongly has an impact on PUBG Mobile controls
If you already update your current version to the latest version, you will see that the text editing feature appears right on the game screen and it strongly affects your gameplay, even though you don’t see any text fields there. Lots of applications, not only PUBG Mobile or Fortnite, will be impacted by this feature, especially when you have to use three fingers to touch on the screen to control your characters in the game. Like other games, the development team of PUBG also sent a warning message to all gamers, informing them not to update to the latest iOS version of their iOS devices until the bug is completely fixed.
Usually, PUBG Mobile and Fortnite players will use two fingers to point and move in the game while the third finger will help them do the shooting. This is commonly obtained in the claw grip, and the text-editing gestures are being shown up now.
Because both development teams of Fortnite and PUBG Mobile are teaming up with Apple, which means the fix for this bug will be released soon. The only way to avoid this problem now is that you should not rush to update to iOS 13, and that’s all you can do. You can take a look at the official tweet of PUBG Mobile development team about this problem:
“Attention iOS players: iOS version 13 includes a new feature where touching the screen with 3 fingers simultaneously activates a new function. We are working with Apple on this issue, and encourage iOS users to consider how this may impact them before choosing to Update.”
You will get access to the official fix in the upcoming iOS 13.1, and it is scheduled to be out on September 24th. 3-finger gestures will only be triggered in more logical cases in the next update. For example, players are only able to edit the text when the text is displayed. Besides this, the next iOS 13.1 update lets the developers adjust the time and areas for the text editing operations to be triggered.
There are already some players experiencing this problem and now they are talking about it on social networks. There’s nothing you can do about it but to wait for the fix in iOS 13.1 released by Apple. You have to stay tuned, be patient and wait for the iOS 13.1 to be launched to fix this bug.
