This guide will show you how to change your skin on Minecraft: Pocket Edition. Minecraft has recently updated the way that Skins are changed using custom skins so we have put together this quick guide on how to actually change your skin.
First you will need to open up the MCPE Skins app you are on right now. Find a Skin like shown below and find the Download Skin button. Tap on this and your skin will have saved to your phone Gallery app.
Open Minecraft and tap on the hanger underneath your Skin to the right. This will allow you to have access to the page where Skins can be changed.
Tap on the 3rd Skin you see under “Default”, as shown below.
Tap on “Choose New Skin” on top of the Skin to your right and follow the next step.
Find your Skin in the “Downloads” folder in your Gallery app and then return to the app and press “Confirm Skin”. If you can’t find this, the window that opens up keep searching for a “Downloads” folder. Once you find it, choose the Skin that you downloaded!
