Some iPad users have been encountering performance issues with Magic 2014—Duels of the Planeswalkers. We recommend that those players visit the iTunes App Store to download the latest version of Magic 2014, which was released this week. This version addresses the crash problems that were affecting the iPad Air and iPad Mini devices.

Magic 2014 is a high-performance game. To ensure an optimal experience, we recommend closing other apps and ensuring there are no active downloads before launching the game.

We appreciate your patience while we investigate and address known issues. We also encourage you to share feedback on any issues you have experienced playing Magic 2014. Please post any details, along with your device and version (if known), to our dedicated community thread.

As with any purchase you make from Wizards of the Coast, if you have concerns or questions, please feel free to contact Game Support (at or (425) 226-6500). We are happy to assist you so as to improve your overall experience.
