The iPhone 15 from Apple was released less than a month ago (September 22nd), and it’s already being hailed by many as a fantastic device for playing a handful of triple-A video games, thanks to the powerful A17 Pro chipset and even faster ray tracing capabilities than any other smartphone.
Are iPhone 15s pushing mobile gaming developers to new levels? Let’s dive straight in to find out.
What does it mean now you can play triple-A games on the iPhone 15?
It’s a huge step forward for the mobile gaming sector now that being able to play a handful of graphically demanding high-end triple-A (AAA) video games on an iPhone 15 is possible.
However, the games are still best played with attachable mobile gaming controllers rather than touchscreen controls. Pulling off certain complex moves or driving vehicles in triple-A games is much harder when using standard touchscreen controls.
iPhone 15 users can still play their favourite Indie games, social multiplayer games, casual games, casino games at no KYC casino sites, and all other games they were used to playing on previous models from the iPhone Pro and Pro Max series.
The only difference is that they can now play some of the world’s best video games. The triple-A games currently available to play on the iPhone 15 seem to run just fine without any stickiness, buffering, or lagging, and it will no doubt inspire mobile game development studios to take a step to the next level.
These companies can look forward to a newfound income, thanks to a growing number of iPhone 15 users who are purchasing the games they have always wanted to play on their iPhones.
However, the only issue at the moment is that these triple-A iPhone 15 games aren’t cheap, and most of today’s mobile gamers are used to paying for relatively affordable games.
Also, the games take up a lot of space on the iPhone 15, so you would have to delete almost all your videos, photos, and other apps to make room for your favourite games.
The game prices will need to come down, and Apple will need to add more hard drive space for players to store multiple games.
Also, most triple-A games are designed to be played for hours at a time. You won’t get very far playing triple-A games if your iPhone 15 charger isn’t plugged in. The battery just won’t be able to handle too many hours of playing.
What triple-A games can I play on my iPhone 15?
There are just a handful of triple-A video games now available to play on the iPhone 15, including the following hit titles:
- Assassin’s Creed Mirage
- The Division: Resurgence
- Resident Evil 4
- Death Stranding
- Resident Evil Village
More games are likely to follow over the coming months. Other top-rated triple-A video games we would love to see become available on the iPhone 15 are Red Dead Redemption 2, Halo Infinite, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, Final Fantasy VII Remake, and Cyberpunk 2077, to name a few.
In short, it’s great that triple-A games can now be played on the iPhone 15. Hopefully, this will inspire more companies to get their games optimised for the device.
However, with the few minor downsides mentioned above (current cost of games, battery, device storage, etc.), the growth in the triple-A mobile gaming sector may not happen as quickly as some might think.
