Installing & Updating League of Legends: Wild Rift

Whether you're looking to flex your finely-tuned League skills on mobile or visiting Runeterra for the first time, the journey of a thousand games begins with a single download. Sure, you can just search for League of Legends: Wild Rift in the games section of Google Play for Android, the App Store for iOS, or the Galaxy Store for Samsung, but what if that doesn't work?

Then you just read this guide, of course!

Installing Wild Rift

The fastest path to installing Wild Rift on Apple, Android, and Samsung devices will always be to visit its home page, where you'll find direct links for all supported app marketplaces!

Updating Wild Rift

Apple Update

Trying to update Wild Rift on your iOS device? Just do the following:

  • Open the App Store, then tap Today at the bottom of your screen.
  • Tap your Profile Icon at the top of the screen.
  • Scroll down to see any pending updates or release notes. If Wild Rift shows up, that means it's time to tap Update.

Forcing an Apple Update

Google Update

Ready to update Wild Rift on your Android device? Give this a try:

  • Open the Google Play Store on your device.
  • Open the Menu (the three lines in the top left), then tap My apps & games.
  • Tap the green Update button next to the Wild Rift app.

Clearing the Cache & Force Updates

Sometimes, your device just needs a friendly reminder that there may be an update available. Other times, only clearing the cache will set things right. Thankfully, both are pretty easy to do!

  • Go to Settings and tap Apps & notifications (or just Apps on certain devices).
  • Scroll down and tap Google Play services, then Storage.
  • Go ahead and Clear Cache.
  • Tap the Back button in the top left to return to the App info screen.
  • Tap App Details (you may need to tap Advanced first).
  • Update your Google services by tapping the Update button.

Samsung Update

Want to make sure you’re playing with the latest version of Wild Rift on your Samsung device? We got you covered:

  • Open the Galaxy Store on your device.
  • Tap the Menu icon (three horizontal lines) in the upper left corner.
  • Tap Updates.
  • Find League of Legends: Wild Rift and tap the circling arrow to update
  • (optional) Tap Update all at the top to make sure all your Galaxy apps are up to date, including Wild Rift!

To turn on auto-updates, go into the Galaxy Store’s menu once more and tap the Settings icon (the one shaped like a gear). From there, you can tap Auto update apps and choose the setting that works best for you.
