The game recommends the best setting based on your mobile device's specs.

Apex Legends Mobile framerate caps per FPS setting

  • Balance FPS setting - Caps framerate 30. This is the best setting for Apex Legends in lower-specced devices. Strikes a balance between visuals and FPS.
  • High FPS setting - Caps framerate at 45. Perfect for mid-level devices for a smoother experience.
  • Ultra - Caps framerate at 60. Only for high-level devices with fancy specs. Great for an ultra-smooth experience in Apex Legends Mobile but will drain your battery power faster.
  • Extremely High - This setting is only available on top-tier iOS devices. Caps framerate at 80.

At the time of writing, there is no 90 FPS option for Apex Legends Mobile. Keep in mind that what we've discussed here are FPS caps in terms of setting options available.

Choosing these settings does not guarantee that you will have a smooth 45 FPS experience on "High", for example, as it is up to your mobile device specs.
