How much storage space does PUBG Mobile need

As with everything on mobile, it all depends on what kind of phone you have. This is good news for Android users, and less so for those on iOS.

For Android, it weighs in at 1.84 GB, that's as of the 0.19.0 update. The same update is 2.13 GB on iOS.

You may need to clear a little more space than this for either version just to make sure the update is comfortable downloading.

Why this can change

Sometimes when downloads occur it includes things that are being overwritten in the original game file. It all depends on how the platform holder does things.

This means that the file size can be a lot larger than the update itself, and that's because it's basically replacing some of the original files. This can make games feel like they're growing into exponentially larger and more monstrous files, but it's not the case.

This should really be called the Call of Duty: Warzone phenomena, but there's probably a different term for it anyway. The important thing to keep in mind is that the download size might not equal the actual file size, at least when it's an update.
