There’s a potential workaround for this issue

This issue has been around on the stable version of the new Apex Legends Mobile for days. However, the Apex Legends Mobile developers haven’t yet released any official statement to acknowledge the problem. In case you also experience this issue, the good news is there are a couple of workarounds you may try.

  • The new Apex Legenda Mobile game comes with a ‘hold to ADS’ option by default. Instead of using this option, you need to consider activating the ‘tap to ADS’ option, as suggested by this user.
  • Alternatively, you can consider toggling off the ‘ADS button rotates camera’ option, as suggested in this post. After turning off the option, all that remains is to restart your game.
  • As suggested by this user, you can also consider turning off the ‘Crouch to rotate’ and ‘Jump to rotate’ options.

That said, we’ll continue to keep our eyes on the Apex Legenda Mobile developers for you. As soon as we find any new information regarding this matter, we’ll let you know about it.
