1. Download iFunBox. It’s a free software which works for both Windows and Mac. Install the program on your computer.

2. Plug in your iOS device (e.g. iPhone, iPad) to your computer using a data connection cord (cable).

3. Go find a texture pack here. Preferably, choose one of the most recent ones to make sure it works for the latest version of Minecraft Pocket Edition. In this case we used Faithful PE.

4. Open the iFunBox program on your computer. Click “File Browser”.

10. Go to the desktop of your computer and make a new folder there called resource_packs.

11. Open up the iFunBox window again and drag and drop the resource_packs folder into the /com.mojang/ folder.

12. Now we need to get the texture pack. Usually they are downloaded as zip or rar files. Mac computer can open a zip file just by clicking on them. If it is a rar file you will need to use WinRAR.

If you are using Windows then we recommend using 7-Zip to extract the zip or rar file.

13. Drag and drop the texture pack folder into the resource_packs folder in iFunBox.

The file structure for the texture pack should look like this: “Faithful” (folder) > images (folder), pack_icon.png, resources.json and whatever else files and folder there are.

14. Close iFunBox and unplug the iOS device from your computer. Then open Minecraft Pocket Edition on your iOS device. Tap on “Settings” and press “Global Resources” in the sidebar. Then find the Faithful PE texture pack in the list of available packs on the right and select it to apply it to the game.
