After downloading the World file in .mcworld format to your iPhone or iPad, please open the Files application. Next, open the Download Folder (Downloads).
Click the file to launch it via Minecraft. Or, holding the file, select Share and Minecraft or Minecraft Preview.
The Game will be automatically launched, as well as the import, but it may fail. Skip if there is no error.
If you see such an error, go to the file with the World again via the Files application.
Hold the File and select Compress.
A compressed file with the World will appear next to the .mcworld file.
Click the created archive and select the Quick Look tab.
Then click the Preview Content button.
Next, click the Share button and select Minecraft or Minecraft Preview in the list.
Now, your World is successfully imported.
Find it in the list of Worlds and launch it.
The installation process for .mctemplate files on iOS and iPadOS devices is very similar to the process with .mcworld files, the only difference is the order of creating the World.
Please click the Create New button on the screen with the list of Worlds.
There will be a list of templates. You should scroll down.
Next, find the imported template with the World and click it.
Then click the Create button to generate your World from the template.
Please download the file with the World in .zip or .rar formats. Then open the Files application and go to the Download Folder (Downloads).
Click the file containing the archive with the World and unpack it.
Hold the folder with the World and select Move.
Next, move the folder to Minecraft (or Minecraft Preview) → Games → com.mojang → minecraftWorlds.
Launch Minecraft (restart it if the Game has already been launched). You’ll see the map in the list of Worlds.
