Microsoft-owned Mojang has announced a pretty big update to its popular Minecraft Pocket Edition app for iPhone and iPad devices. If you already have the app, then you just need to get the latest version, but if you're looking to get it, now might be the time to download the game as it comes with many new features. Minecraft said the following on their official blog:

"Skins are the way you change the appearance of your Minecraft character. Instead of looking like Alex or Steve, you can roll with a different vibe, like a butcher, dog, or plumber. Skins are purely cosmetic – they don’t affect the way the game plays or give you any special abilities."

Speaking of the most recent version, Mojang says they have improved the graphics, increased performance, and killed off heaps of bugs in one massive update. Here's the full changelog of the game:
  • Loads of bug fixes
  • More watery-looking water
  • Foggier-looking fog
  • Even more particles than before
  • Tinted lighting on terrain and mobs
  • Improved performance on many devices
  • More fences! More fence gates! Everyone loves fences
  • Gold mines in Mesa biomes. Get rich quick
  • Baby animals can now swim without sinking
  • Play Creative Mode during both the day and night
  • Lots more cool stuff that you can discover for yourself
The paid skins are available to purchase in bundles, but users can also upload or create their own or choose to find free skins within the game. For one dollar, you’ll get around 20 skins, if you prefer the easier way. Go ahead and follow the link from below to download the updated version of the game.
