Why the iPhone X isn't the best bet for mobile gamers right now

Posted by Harry Slater on January 9th, 2018

It's always tempting to have the best thing. As game players we're almost conditioned to chase the biggest processor, the most power, the next generation. Even mobile gaming isn't immune to this push to progress - there are games on the App Store that don't work on an iPhone 6 any more.

Which means the iPhone X should be the device at the top of all of our want lists right? It's get the sharpest processor, it's as future proof as an Apple device ever gets. It's the top of the toppest range of smartphones. We should all be clamouring to get one.

Well, no. We shouldn't.

Will the iPhone 7 change much for mobile gamers?

When Apple held its press event earlier this week, everything went more or less according to plan. The occasion was indeed mostly to unveil the iPhone 7 to the anxious world of Apple customers, though the company did spend some time on its newly upgraded Apple Watch, iOS 10, and a few other things.

There were two definite highlights for mobile gamers, albeit not both for iPhone users. The first was the reveal of Super Mario Run, an honest to goodness Nintendo mobile title (via its partnership with DeNA) featuring everyone's favorite plumber. Miyamoto even made an appearance to show it off.

The other was for Apple Watch owners, who will soon be able to play a very full-featured version of Pokemon GO. Not too many popular mobile games have found a comfortable home on Apple Watch, but this looks like it will be an exception.

Still, what most observers from this industry wanted to know is whether or not the coming of the iPhone 7 will change much for mobile gamers. And the answer is pretty short and sweet: probably not. Let's see what will effects the new phone might have on your gaming habits.

The Apple press event is Wednesday. Officially, we don't know what the company is going to roll out, because Apple never officially tips its hand about such things ahead of time.

Unofficially, there's an entire cottage industry devoted to reading the tea leaves grown in Cupertino. So not only do people think they know what Apple is revealing tomorrow, they also feel pretty confident about when you'll be downloading all your favorite games and apps onto it.
