First Appearance

Update 0.11.0

Skins are textures which determine how a player appears in Minecraft: Pocket Edition. Skins were added in Update 0.11.0.


Default Skins

There are currently two default skins in the game- 

  • Steve, the male model
  • Alex, the female model

Skin Packs

Mojang has released official skin packs containing a variety of skins, mostly based on one or more themes (eg. Star Wars, Marvel, etc). These can be either free or paid.

Custom Skins

It is also possible to upload a custom skin into the game if the player chooses to do so. They can do so using the Minecraft: Skin Studio Encore App,,or SkinSeed. They can also download a skin file from the internet, save it in their images, and access it through the game.


  • Skins were originally planned for Update 0.10.0, but were postponed as they were too buggy.
  • Before Update 0.11.1, There was a bug were Skin Packs could not be purchased.
  • A bad glitch occurs on older devices like ipod touch 4th gen which doesn't allow custom skins to work.
