Following betas and some delays, Electronic Arts finally launched Apex Legends Mobile, a AAA battle royale experience built for Android and iOS devices. The game is filled to the brim with content in its "soft launch" period and is only available in 10 select countries right now. Just like every other multiplayer title out there, Apex Legends Mobile players could run into some errors, and one in particular which states "device not supported" is confusing some players.
Here's what you need to know about the Apex Legends Mobile device not supported error, how to check if your mobile gaming device is up to the task, and if there's any surefire fix.

The Apex Legends Mobile device not supported message is a hardware error. Simply put, it means your tablet or phone can't run the game.

How to fix Apex Legends Mobile device not supported error
Unfortunately, there is no clear way to fix the Apex Legends Mobile device not supported error, as this is a hardware issue.
We suggest checking if your device meets the minimum requirements (for Android or iOS).

Apex Legends Mobile iOS specs:
