Minecraft 1.20.2 APK : How to Update, Install

The PC version of Minecraft, as well as its Java and Bedrock Editions, can use a variety of programs to stay up to date. This can include the official launcher for this title, the Microsoft Store, or Xbox's PC Game Pass. Mobile devices, on the other hand, run minimal executable files.

Since the Minecraft Pocket Edition APK file is available online, you can download the setup files in any region. You can download the APK file from any of the available websites that are sources of Android APK/XAPK files. After downloading the app package (.xapk file) locate the file on your system. 

  1. Download the XAPK package from a safe source of your choice.

  2. Rename the downloaded file’s extension from “.xapk” to “.zip”

  3. Unzip the file into any folder

  4. Create a new folder in the local folder system of your device, namely /sdcard/storage/emulated/0/Android/obb/<OBBname>/, where <OBBname> is the OBB file name itself without the extension

  5. Copy the OBB to the folder you created

  6. Install the APK file that you extracted

Note: AFK Gaming does not condone piracy and and the guide is meant for players who own a legitimate copy of the game on Android devices.

  1. Navigate to Setting > Security.

  2. Check the option “Unknown sources“.

  3. Tap OK on the prompt message.

  4. Select “Trust“.
