Is Apex Legends Mobile crashing for you? Well, no one would like that! Imagine trying to take down an enemy squad and the game just decides to stop working for you – that is outrageous, per se. By the time you restart the game, the crash would have cost you the match. It’s not just Apex Legends or battle royales, in general. Experiencing crashes while trying to play any game isn’t acceptable. Don’t worry; if Apex Legends Mobile is crashing on your mobile device, we will help you fix it. Turns out, that a few tweaks here and there can save you a lot of time (and anger).
Apex Legends Mobile has been optimized only for Android and iOS devices. The graphics, frame rates, settings, controls – everything is curated according to what’s comfortable for a mobile gamer. However, your device specifications matter too. If your device features an up-to-date powerful processor and enough RAM, you should be able to run the game on high settings. Low-end devices will only be able to support Apex Legends Mobile if you reduce image quality and frame rates. As it happens, Respawn is still working on better optimizing Apex Legends Mobile for all kinds of mobile devices. It’s the beta phase now; crashes will be a common occurrence even on powerful hardware, unfortunately.
How to fix Apex Legends Mobile crashing on iOS or Android device?
The very first suggestion from our side would be to reduce the Image Quality from in-game settings. The image quality is a representation of the quality of graphics you will see in-game. Lowering it will let you enjoy more frame rates. Of course, you will not be seeing shadows or other intricacies of World’s Edge on low image quality. But frame rates will play a greater role in getting you the win!
To change image quality and frame rates in Apex Legends Mobile, head over to in-game settings and then open Display Settings. We recommend setting image quality to Smooth and frame rate to the highest available setting. If you think you can afford a bit more of the image quality, choose Balanced. However, don’t use a higher setting if you are facing a lot of frame drops or crashes. You could also try lowering your frame rate setting if your device is heating up or using up a lot of battery.
The image quality and frame rates play a massive role, but there are a few other settings you can tweak to avoid crashes altogether. Disable Dynamic Shadows, Refraction Quality and Anti-Aliasing. You could consider enabling Adaptive Smoothing, which would automatically lower image quality if your device is having a hard time. But if you have set it to the lowest, you wouldn’t need adaptive smoothing. That’s all in in-game settings that could help the crash problem!
– Make sure you close background apps before launching the game. Believe it or not, no mobile device is powerful enough to handle your messaging apps and a heavy game like Apex Legends M together.
– Being in the beta stage, Apex Legends M has a lot of room for improvement. Respawn will be deploying updates as frequently as possible. Make sure you don’t keep any of such updates pending. Avoiding updates will only cause the game to crash more.
– While you update Apex Legends Mobile, make sure you keep your phone’s OS updated as well. A glitch in the OS at this time will only make things worse.
– Make sure your device has enough space for Apex Legends M to breathe! Delete extra files or apps, if possible.
That’s all you can do right now to fix Apex Legends Mobile crashing on iOS or Android. Here’s a tip from us – play the game on an iOS device for better frame rate stability at higher image quality settings. Apex Legends M will continue to remain in the beta testing phase until the regional launch ends on May 3. Some “crash” issues are expected until the full release of the game.
