Minecraft PE 0.9.0 update

Minecraft: Pocket Edition is one of the most popular games for the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch, consistently ranked among the top of the App Store charts. The mobile version of Minecraft has made impressive strides over the past few years to catch up with the desktop version, in terms of functionality and gameplay, and even more features are planned to be added in the upcoming version. Minecraft PE 0.9.0 is expected to be a huge update, having been in development since at least last September, so read ahead for expected features and a potential release date… 

Minecraft PE 0.9.0 expected features

Minecraft Huge Mushroom

New generated structures: There will be tall grass and caves in the 0.9.0 update, as confirmed by Mojang developer Tommaso Checchi. These options will be generated automatically on Infinite worlds, and can be enabled by toggle switch on finite worlds. Tall grass and caves will be resource intensive, so they are recommended to be disabled on older iOS devices. These structures will also be able to be generated in new non-legacy worlds:

  • Villages
  • Lava pools
  • Rivers
  • Abandoned mine shafts
  • Huge mushrooms
  • Strongholds
  • Jungle, Acacia and Dark Oak trees
  • Pumpkin
  • Dead Bushes
  • Ferns

Flat world generation and world sizes: Checchi also tweeted out this teaser picture of a flat world, which is something you will be able to generate in version 0.9.0 and onwards. Default and Superflat will be the options. You’ll also be able to pick from different world sizes: Legacy (256 x 256), Small (864 x 864), Medium, Large and Default (10,000 x 10,000). An infinite sized option will be available for dual-core devices, but the the game will crash about 10,000 blocks out from the center.


New mobs: Villagers, Ocelots, and Mooshrooms will be added as passive mobs, Endermen and Wolves will be added as neutral mobs, and Slimes and Silverfish will be added as Hostile mobs. Enderpearls will not be included in the 0.9.0 update.

MCPE Biome

New biomes: The following biomes will be added, and tall ones will be shrunk to fit the 128-block limit on Minecraft: Pocket Edition: Jungles, Mesa, Plains, Roofed Forests, Savannas, Taiga, Extreme Hills, Mushroom Islands and potentially the Far Biome.

Minecraft Wood BlockNew blocks and items:

  • Plants: Saplings (Jungle, Acacia, Dark Oak), Flowers (Poppy, Blue Orchid, Allium, Azure Bluet, Tulips, Oxeye Daisy, Sunflower, Lilac, Rose Bush, Peony), Vines, Lily Pads, Cocoa Pads, Double Tall Grass, Large Fem
  • Wood, wood planks, slabs and stairs (Acacia and Dark Oak)

Minecraft PE 0.9.0 release date

While no concrete release date has been provided by Mojang as of yet, several users have been speculating that the update should arrive at some point this month. Minecraft PE 0.9.0 has been in development since at least last September, which should be worth the wait considering all of these new features that will be added. As soon as any new information is known, we will be sure to update this post as needed.

  • Matthew

    Will you somehow be able to extend worlds loaded in older updates with the same data?

  • Lilly w

    I already have the update I have had it for about a week. Its awesome everything is different and a lot better there are some glitches but other wise its really good.
    Your old worlds don’t work very well because part of the new update is that everything is changed so they glitch a lot!
    I am very happy with the update it’s nice to have bigger and infinite worlds.

  • Djason (assasin)

    Man I cant wait

  • cat.rosalina

    We need mods and skins

  • Joanne Ashburn

    Is it coming out at 12:00 today

  • caden lam

    If guess

  • Jimpsonseed

    The new version was released today. New animals (not new animal types) were given to my already existing world. I had corralled the animals in that world but when I opened it up after the update, new chickens, cows, sheep and pigs were roaming around freely. Also, sleeping in your bed does not heal damage to your health. You now have to eat to heal.
    But my world keeps crashing now. And when it isn’t crashing, it’s glitching really bad, having only parts of the world visible while the other parts are invisible, meaning that I can see through the areas where they are supposed to be. For example, I have a mushroom farm built into the side of a mountain. The dirt wall that separates me from the mushroom farm is invisible, and I can see the hostile mops on the other side walking around in the dark. Or half a mountain is gone, and when I walk up to it, I can still climb it, I just can’t see the actual blocks. Makes it dangerous if you don’t see a cavern or long fall coming.

  • Uriel

    This sucks. I had PE edition of minecraft, and it costed me 7 dollars. I bought the Xbox Edition for 20, and now PE has more features than Xbox does! I want a refund! Why do they pay less and get more!
