This method is working, but not 100% effective, you might get crash sometimes while playing a match, that’s completely normal and better than not playing.

- Open Fakemodel App, Enable it
- Go to User Apps, Select Battlegrounds app
- Choose any Model from there (iPhone 8, 8P or X)
- Now Open Liberty lite app
- Enable Liberty there
- Enable the Battlegrounds under Block Jailbreak Detection there.
2) Without Jailbreak
If you are among those, who don’t want to use the above method by changing their Device model, and jailbreaking the device, then there is no way to run the BGMI on your device currently.
The Only Way is to wait for the next Krafton announcement, which will be releasing the support for the lower end ios devices, which will be surely available soon.
As you can see the game message which shows “it will be included soon” is a big hint by Krafton that they are currently working on the unsupported device problem, and will do something in the upcoming days.

But if you don’t want to jailbreak your device, the only way is now to wait for the Announcement by Krafton for Ios 5 and lower.
