2) Back at the top of Settings, go to the accounts section and create a new iCloud account. Review the various options until you are asked for an email address to assign.

Use an existing email address that you already have on file, but that is different than the one already in use for any existing iCloud account.

3) Continue with the setup (verification, password, etc.) until you have verified your email address and created the account.

4) Once this is done, the account is created. Go to the App Store app and then sign in to your account again.

At this point, it may tell you that you need to configure your iCloud account further; This will take you back to Settings, so say “Not now,” accept the terms, and then hit Next.

5) This is where you configure the payment (set to None) and address details; There are many address generator websites that you can use for this purpose.

6) Then you should be ready to go. Search for PUBG in the App Store and you will be presented with the two apps. For us, it was the better of the two (at the time of writing, the one with the darker sky in the logo).
