By  |  14 Comments

It looks like Rockstar will soon announce a GTA 5 iPhone and iPad app, and while it’s not going to let you play Grand Theft Auto 5 on your iPhone, it will let you perform some customization while away from your console.

Over the weekend retailers broke the GTA 5 release date, putting the much anticipated game in the hands of users across the globe and delivering a lot of new information about the GTA 5 world.

Rockstar’s Grand Theft Auto games include an iFruit brand, which is a play on the iPhone. The iFruit will play a role in the game, allowing users to call characters, check a map, take photos and more.

The new GTA 5 leaks indicate there will be a GTA 5 iPhone, iPad and Android app, but it sounds like Windows Phone will be left out.

As you can see in the screenshot below, there is a prompt for the user to download the iFruit app.

Users who visit the rockstargames.com/V/downloads prompt in the message find an assortment of GTA 5 wallpapers, but no GTA 5 app just yet. If Rockstar is indeed about to release an GTA 5 iPhone and iPad app under the iFruit name, it could arrive in the iTunes App Store on Monday and an Android version on Google Play soon after.

    Get rid of the leaked images, or at least put a spoiler warning. Some of us don’t want to see that stuff.
