Axie Infinity: How to Play on an iPhone or Android

Axie Infinity players have the option of earning money as they play the game on their mobile devices. While the game is available on PC, you can take your smartphone with you anywhere in your pocket. However, getting Axie Infinity on your mobile device isn’t as easy as just downloading it from the app store.

Axie Infinity: How to Play on an iPhone or Android

Instead, you’re only able to get the mobile versions from the official website or third-party providers. It’s still much safer to get it from the former, as there’s less of a risk. Read on to find out more.

How to Play Axie Infinity on an iPhone

iPhone users have the short end of the stick when it comes to getting the game. Registering for cryptocurrency wallets may already take a long time due to how much money is involved. However, there’s another possible reason you might have to wait a while before you can play Axie Infinity.

TestFlight is an app for other app developers to deploy for their users. The developers will let users test their software, which necessitates an approval process. For Axie Infinity, players must use TestFlight and apply as a tester. After being approved, they can download the app and start playing.

Before you can play Axie Infinity, you’ll also need to own some Ethereum, as the game’s special cryptocurrencies are based on this token. That means you’ll need an Ethereum wallet like MetaMask or something legal in your country.

Another requirement is Ronin Wallet, which is how you’ll store all your Smooth Love Potions (SLP), Axie Infinity Tokens (AXS), and Wrapped Ethereum (WETH). While you might not need the last option, you earn the first two just from playing the game.

Now that you know what Axie Infinity requires, we can get into the process.

Getting MetaMask

We’ll be using MetaMask as our example since it’s easily bridged to Axie Infinity. You can also buy or trade for Ethereum using it, all from your smartphone.

  1. Go to the App Store.
  2. Search for and install MetaMask.
  3. Register for a MetaMask account.

MetaMask is how you’ll buy Ethereum; never reveal any of these credentials to anyone. If someone with malicious intent accesses your wallet, you’re in deep trouble.

Getting Ronin Wallet

Next, you’ll download Ronin Wallet, as you can’t have an Axie Infinity account without it. It’s also available for smartphone users.

  1. Open the App Store.
  2. Look for Ronin Wallet and install it.
  3. Register for an account.

These two processes may take some time, as you might have to wait for approval. After both are ready, you can go to the Axie Marketplace and get at least three Axies. You can create an Axie Infinity account using your Ronin Wallet account.

Install TestFlight and Axie Infinity

Now, with Axies in hand, you’re ready to download the game. The developers will only allow players with Axies to get the app. That’s why you have these instructions last:

  1. Download TestFlight from the App Store.
  2. Install the app, but don’t do anything with it yet.
  3. Go to the official Axie Infinity website.
  4. Go to the download page.
  5. Choose the iOS version and download it.
  6. Install Axie Infinity.
  7. After that, open TestFlight.
  8. Apply to be an Axie Infinity tester.
  9. Wait for approval.
  10. When you gain approval to be a tester, open the Axie Infinity app.
  11. Get a QR code and submit it.
  12. Log in and play the game.

Finally, you can start earning money to cover your Axies. Players with scholarships don’t have to pay anything except for a cut of their earnings.

How to Play Axie Infinity on an Android Device

Thankfully, Android users don’t need to use TestFlight at all. Once they have three Axies in their account, they can download the app and get right to playing. Other than that, the process is all but identical.

Here’s what you have to do:

Download MetaMask

If you’re not a fan of MetaMask or it’s not available in your country, you can substitute it with another exchange platform.

  1. Open the Google Play Store.
  2. Download MetaMask and install it.
  3. Register for an account.

Make sure you have a bank account, and it has fiat money in it. You’ll need money to purchase Ethereum, and the Ethereum is for the three Axies you must acquire before starting the game.

Download Ronin Wallet

Just like on iOS, you’ll need to get Ronin Wallet on your Android device. It’s not that you can’t use your phone browser, but installing it is much more convenient. That way, you don’t have to change tabs all the time.

  1. Search for Ronin Wallet in the Google Play Store.
  2. Download it.
  3. Install the app.
  4. Register for an account.

When you play the game, all your earnings will go to Ronin Wallet. It’s essential to keep your credentials safe, as you don’t want anyone else stealing your SLP and AXS.

All you need to do now is use the Ronin Wallet account to start your Axie Infinity account and purchase three Axies.

Getting the App

Without the need for downloading TestFlight, there’s no reason to wait anymore. Once you have your Axies, it’s time to get Axie Infinity:

  1. Go to the official website of the game.
  2. Head to the download page.
  3. Pick the Android download option.
  4. Install the app.
  5. Open the app and submit your QR code.
  6. Log in and start playing.

That’s how you get the game on Android. It’s usually much faster than on iPhone, thanks to the lack of TestFlight approvals.

Earning Money on the Go

With the help of Axie Infinity, many Filipino gamers have quit their original jobs just to play and earn. Most of them play on smartphones since they’re easier to get in the Philippines. Today, they constitute the most significant part of the player base.
