Honkai: Star Rail is a brand new free-to-play game from HoYoverse, available on mobile devices. So what system requirements do players need for iPhone and iOS devices?

Honkai: Star Rail is the latest free-to-play game from Genshin Impact developers HoYoverse. Like Genshin, Honkai: Star Rail features gacha-like mechanics, with players rolling to earn special characters and items. The game marks the fourth installment in the Honkai franchise, bringing back some returning characters amidst brand new faces.

Honkai: Star Rail takes a more sci-fi approach to its setting compared to Genshin, with the Astrail Express (an interstellar train) being a focal point of the game's story. The game launched on April 26, with the first part of the story being the Herta Space Station Arc, beginning with two crew members of the Astral Express delivering rare relics to Herta.

Drama ensues when Voidrangers of the Antimatter Legion ambush the Herta Space Station and begin attacking its inhabitants.

Honkai: Star Rail has already attracted the attentions of plenty of fans, quickly becoming a hit among Genshin fans in particular. So, if you're looking to join in with the action on an iPhone or iOS device, here's what system requirements you'll need.
