How to Play Xbox on your iPhone

Xbox is a popular gaming brand owned by Microsoft. Since the console’s inception 15 years ago, it has proven itself to be one of the most sought-after platforms for game lovers around the globe. Because of this, many developers have followed suit and developed their own games based on the Xbox code. This popularity is one of the main reasons (among others) why Netflix has released a new on-demand service that allows people to watch TV shows and movies streamed directly onto their Xbox channel.

Xbox Game Pass is a subscription service that gives you access to hundreds of video games that you can then play from the comfort of your own device. The program functions like a Netflix-style service but is geared specifically towards games allowing you to access titles that are on your account so long as they remain inside Xbox’s library.

Wondering how you can play Xbox One or Xbox 360 games on iPhone? Don’t worry, you’ve come to the right place! Back in April, Microsoft introduced the Xbox Game Pass Mobile which allows gamers to take advantage of Microsoft’s cloud technology by accessing their digital library directly on their iOS device. In this ultimate guide, we’ll show you everything you need to know about getting started with Xbox One & Xbox 360 Cloud Gaming on iPhone and iPad.
