Whenever Jagex says 'soon', they usually mean 10 years later.
But srsly, no I don't think we have that info yet.


I was actually srsly.


Jagex actually had an update on that:

"This is from today's June Mobile blog:

"Future Release Plans

On to the hot topic of betas! We will be aiming to uncap the Android Members beta in the near future so, if you’re a member and have an Android device, you’ll soon be able to play on mobile and not have to worry about getting in before the influx of other interested players.

As for iOS; we are still developing the iOS version but are not in a position to release a beta at this point. We need to work on a few stability issues and then focus on the best way to get it into your hands. However, the way betas are organised on iOS means that we wont be able to run the same kind of beta we did on Android. We know that there are many players eager/frustrated to get their hands on the iOS version, and we’re just as eager to give it to you! Once stability of the iOS version is up to scratch and we’ve come up with the best way to get it to you, expect to hear more."


And no. They did not say "soon" on iOS beta. They said they won't be able to run the same kind of beta they did on Android. To my knowledge that may have much to do with Apple's beta tester quota.

Not sure if they will just skip iOS member beta and go directly to release it, or they will run a shortened member beta, or they just unregister the current closed beta accounts for the new batch of testers.

tl;dr
So in 10 years from now, k.


Told you clearly already.
Jagex said they won't be able to run the same kind of beta they did on Android
.

Just don't wait for iOS member beta because they may just skip it and go directly to iOS release. Most games don't have member beta and go directly to release. Apex Legends was released without any beta at all. So can RS3 iOS Mobile.

I am eagerly awaiting the iOS release, the big screen on my iPad is a lot better than trying to tap those microscopic options on my phone.

Playing rs on the pooper is my ambition for this game.

We may not have to wait for too long as Mod Shauny just mentioned the "Big Mobile Update" in reply to a Reddit user's question on the "lesser abilities" mentioned on the June BTS:

"That’ll come out with the big Mobile update, alongside the buff bar system rework and the 3 free additional action bars!"


Still not sure if there will be any iOS beta, but some big RS3 Mobile announcement may come soon.

Jagex I expect this quote to feature somewhere on the store page, or in some form of marketing.

at this point i've become convinced jagex isn't working on ios lol


I 've become convinced Jagex isn't working on Android too because they have stopped hiring any mobile people for over a month already. They are hiring a lot of publishing and integration people.

Oh. That means work on RS3 Mobile is pretty much done and it is just a matter of waiting for the final beta (if applicable) and then the release.

They are already on to the publishing part of their main direction.
