When you hear GTA, most surely memories and feeling come to your head. Over the years GTA games have become a part of our lifestyle. If you are a true gamer, you most likely played one GTA game. The history began in 1997 with Grand Theft Auto 1, a 2D game and continued with GTA 2. In 2001 Gta3 was the first 3D game of the series and had a huge success. As the time passed the games had more notoriety, new titles appeared as Grand Theft Auto Vice City. In 2004 the GTA San Andreas appeared and was a huge title at the moment. Four years later was the GTA IV time to make an impact. Awesome graphics and a huge open world. The last title of the series is GTA V, the most complex and advanced GTA game created. It is the 3rd all-time most sold game. His popularity remains till this day thanks to its online part, the GTA Online. Would there be a GTA 6? Rumors say that is in development, but nothing sure for now.
Almost all of the games were developed exclusively for consoles and PC. Fans always wanted to play the games on their phones. Their wish was fulfilled in 2018 when GTA San Andreas was ported to mobile platforms like iOS and Android. The game had a huge success and there were rumors that GTA IV would be ported as well. It wasn’t the case and the fans were disappointed. The main explication was that the mobile devices were not powerful enough to run the game. Now the mobile industry has incredible devices dedicated to games exclusively and a new mobile game from the series was inevitable. GTAV was ported and this is how GTA 5 Mobile become true.
Since 2013 people wanted to play the GTA 5 on their phones. Unfortunately, the game was only available for PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation3. Over the years the game was adapted for the upcoming consoles like Xbox One and PlayStation 4 but the mobile players were forgotten. Now, the wait is over, GTA 5 Mobile can be downloaded and installed on any phone. Well, almost every phone, as it requires some resources to play it. You can check below if your phone meets the minimum specifications to run the game. The game is optimized to run smoothly on any device and huge efforts were taken to reduce the size of the game.

Since it is not an official game it can’t be found on Google Play or App Store. The game is hosted on cloud hosting and you can download it right now. Choose your system and start the download. Before you start the download make sure you have a stable internet connection.
First of all, download GTA 5 APK file by clicking the “Download APK” button. If you are on a PC you must copy the file into your phone. Open the file and the install should popup. If the installation is blocked go to your phone settings tab > Apps > Menu icon > Special access > Install unknown apps. Here click Allow installation for GTA 5 Mobile. Once you installed the base file a custom menu will appear for you to choose what parts of the game you want to install. If you run low on space is best not to install them all once. If you have at least 5GB free you can check them all and start to download all the files.
If you want to play the game on your iOS device is a bit harder to do it. Download the GTA 5 IPA file on your device. It will be saved on Files > Downloads. Connect the phone to your PC and transfer the file there. If you are using your PC to download you can skin this step. On your PC you need to install iTunes. Open iTunes, drag the GTA 5 ipa file and drop it over “On My Devices”. The app will start syncing the file and will install it on your device. Keep in mind that all this time your phone needs to be connected to your PC. Once installed open GTA V Mobile on your phone and, as I described above, choose what files you want to download.
The game can run on any Android or iOS device (phone or tablet). The minimum requirement is a device with at least 1GB of RAM and at least 1,5GB free space. Do not be tricked, the install file has only 60MB. When you start the install the rest of the files will be downloaded. If you do not have enough free space on your phone do now worry. The install is custom and you can choose what files to download. It will require a strong internet connection, so we recommend using the WIFI rather than mobile data. Note: Devices older than Android 6.0 and iOS 9.3.5 won’t be able to run the game.
Once you manage to pass the install and download time an awesome game will be at your disposal. You can play the game wherever you go without having to carry a PlayStation or an Xbox with you. You will have GTA in your pocket. The game is identical to the original one and you can even play it with your friends in the online mode. Imagine showing your friends your phone with GTA Mobile installed and running. They will go crazy. The game is optimized to run on small screens also, but we do not recommend using a small device. Ideally is to play it on a tablet to see the full details and graphics this mobile game has.
