Facing a network connection error while trying to play Apex Legends Mobile? The next obvious thing will be to check whether your internet connection is working. If other apps are working fine on the same internet connection, it’s a problem within Apex Legends that’s causing this error. Don’t worry; we will help you get rid of this in no time. Follow our guide!
Apex Legends Mobile has now been soft-launched in ten popular regions across the world! Although this suggests a full release happening soon, fans are unable to contain their excitement anymore. The soft launch was supposed to include more regions but due to inconveniences, Respawn had to limit the list of regions. While it is being termed as a regional “launch”, the game is still in beta and the developers are still working on optimizing it. It is only natural for players to run into issues while playing Apex Legends Mobile, considering the fact that a beta stage is never smooth. To top that, fans from unsupported regions (excluded from the beta stage) are trying to play the game using VPN services. So, while we are facing network errors and high ping issues, the developers are also not having an easy time managing the servers.
How to fix the network connection error in Apex Legends Mobile?
First up, you should know that playing Apex Legends Mobile using a VPN will expose you to network connectivity issues. As a result, you may find yourself running into network connection errors. In such cases, try subscribing to a premium VPN service instead of a free one. It could help you bypass the barriers and may ensure better ping and no connection errors.
Try the following troubleshooting steps, irrespective of your region status:
1) Switch to Mobile Data, if using WiFi or vice versa. It could be a temporary network error, that could be fixed by switching between connections.
2) Disable VPN, if you are from a supported region.
3) Try using Google DNS for your WiFi network.
4) Switch to a different mobile data line if you own a second sim card.
5) Check your device’s time and date. A wrong date and time region could cause Apex Legends Mobile to throw a network connection error.
6) Lastly, restart your device and try launching the game again.
If none of the above worked, check whether Apex Legends Mobile is working for your friends situated in your region. No? It’s probably a server issue that the developers need to correct. You could also check this website for Apex Legends status. However, the servers for PC or consoles may not correspond to the servers for the mobile version.
The developers may have taken down the servers for maintenance. Wait for a few hours before trying to launch the game again. The developers should fix any anomalies soon.
In addition to all the above, we cannot stress enough how important it is to keep Apex Legends Mobile updated. Pending updates is a very common reason behind random errors and bugs. Also, update your phone’s OS to avoid other underlying issues. For more articles on Apex Legends Mobile, stay tuned to us!
