Minecraft game apps on iOS and Android are both now simply labeled as "Minecraft." Can these connect to standard Minecraft and PaperMC servers or is some other plugin/module to modify something like PaperMC to work with these mobile editions of Minecraft?

I'm thinking that they've dropped the "Bedrock" and "PE" nomenclature, but it still may exist and is simply confusing in this respect...


Super short answer: No - BUT it is possible via a "bridge" tool like Geyser.

It appears that my original assumption is the case in that mobile versions are still "PE" and require "Bedrock" servers and something like Geyser is needed to allow mobile editions (no longer called, this but they still are essentially the same things, just named differently) to function with something like Paper or Purpur.
