How to Make The Most of iPhone Entertainment

Do you want to elevate your gaming experience on your iPhone? If so, this is the guide for you. Here you’ll find out what steps you can take to make the most out of your device, so you can game on the go while taking advantage of numerous hidden features.

Playing Games on iOS Messages

You really do have a lot of options when it comes to playing games on your iPhone. You even have games that can be played from within your iOS messages app. To enjoy them, launch your Messages app, and either go onto an existing thread or start a new one. Tap on the App Store icon in the toolbar and then click on Play Games. Tap on the game you want and you will then be able to invite your friend to join.

The games might be basic, but they can be a good way to pass the time. If you want a more immersive gaming experience then you can always download an app from the store. You can play officially licensed titles like MONOPOLY Megaways at Paddy Power Bingo that way, which expands the amount of games you have to play at any given time. If you don’t want to game on a small screen, make use of the AirPlay feature. You can mirror your iPhone screen to a device of your choosing. For this to work you will need an Apple TV or an AirPlay 2-compatible TV. Connect your iPhone and your TV to the same network and then when playing your game, go onto the Control Centre app. You can then turn on the Screen Mirroring feature, before clicking on the device you’d like to connect.

Classic Controllers and Battery Saving

Even though iOS games can be enjoyed by simply tapping on the touchscreen, there’s something about using a gamepad that just gives you greater control. You can connect almost any gaming controller using your phone, not to mention that you can also use retro gamepads too, just make sure they have Bluetooth connectivity. If you want to set this up, open the Settings app and then click on Bluetooth. You can then hold down the pairing button on the controller, which will give you the option to connect wirelessly. If you find that playing games eats into your battery more than you’d like, then one way you can work around this would be for you to put your iPhone in Airplane Mode while gaming. You can also activate low power mode, as when these two options are combined, you can easily extend your iPhone’s battery life by a number of hours.

So gaming on the go doesn’t mean you have to constantly deal with low battery issues, nor does it mean you need to give up the convenience of using a gaming controller either. There are many tips and tricks you can adopt to try and improve your experience, without spending a small fortune, or upgrading your phone to the latest model.
