iOS users can get Pokemon GO from the App Store, while Android users can download the game from Google Play. It’s worth noting that the game is updated periodically, so it’s best to check the latest updates with Niantic’s website.
The game is released in many countries worldwide. If it’s yet to be released in your country, you can still get your hands on Pokemon GO.
You would be happy to know that it just takes at least five minutes to download. And in this post, we would like to show you how to get Pokemon GO on your iPhone.
First and foremost, you are required to use an Apple ID registered to one of the countries where the game is available. Read on to know how to do that:
1. You will be asked to sign out of your existing Apple ID on your iPhone. There are 2 common ways to do this. First, you launch the App Store, go to the Featured tab, scroll down and tap your Apple ID, then tap “Sign out”. Second, you just simply go into Settings, scroll down until you see the section Apple ID and sign out there.
2. When you have sign out of your current Apple ID acount, launch the Settings app and head to General > Language & Region. This will take you to the menu where you change the Region to one of the countries listed above and close the app.
3. Now return to the App Store and search for Pokemon Go. If it doesn’t show up, don’t worry though. Just download any free app and pick “Create new Apple ID” when required to sign in.
4. Follow the instructions to set up. But ensure that you have selected “None” in the Billing menu. This shows up when you downloaded a free app and are creating a new account. Now, you need to add a random approved-country address.
5. After the successful setup of your new Apple ID, simple return to the App Store, search for Pokemon GO and download it.
That’s it. You can now sign of your new Apple ID and sign in with your normal one. When Pokemon GO has been available in your country, you just need to remove the app from your iPhone and download it again through your normal Apple ID. If you sign in to Pokemon GO, your data will be backed up, so don’t worry about losing your data.
It should be noted that Pokemon GO Plus has just been released. This is a new wearable accessory that lets you improve your Pokemon experience. With the help of Pokemon GO Plus, you can now catch Pokemon, access PokeStops and hatch eggs. In particular, you don’t have to take your phone out of your pocket. This useful device is not expensive. The best thing about it is that it helps players with remaining alert to the road, rather than their phones all the time.
