If you are an ardent fan of PUBG Mobile and also an iPhone user, you should not update to iOS 13, which has been officially rolled out to iOS devices globally just a few days back. The problem lies with a new feature regarding multiple touch inputs (three fingers or more) on iOS 13 which results in opening a search bar and disrupting the game.
PUBG Mobile and Fortnite rely on multiple touch screen controls to play the game. While many users just use two fingers to play, many professional players use a technique called Claw which makes use of three or more fingers to play.
In the case of PUBG Mobile, iOS users have been posting screenshots on Twitter showing how the game is being interrupted after updating to iOS 13. As per a report by The Verge the new three-finger gesture to bring up the enhanced text editing tool should only be triggered when a user taps into a text box. Since it is being triggered while users are playing the game, it is quite possibly a bug.
