Minecraft has evolved by leaps and bounds over the years and is not just a major dominant force on the PC, but consoles and mobile versions as well. It is a given that the game experience would be modified to be a better fit for the platforms it is going to be released on.
As a result, there were several changes made to Minecraft Java Edition (the most popular version of the game on PC), thus growing into what came to be known as Minecraft: Bedrock Edition.
The Bedrock Edition was a version of the game optimized for several platforms, which would also include Minecraft on Android and iOS devices. Minecraft, with no subtitle, is now the official title of all Bedrock Edition versions, regardless of platform.
