Microsoft Says Xbox Cloud Gaming Is Now Smoother And More Responsive On iPhones And iPads

Microsoft has shared details on the latest improvements it has been making to the Xbox Cloud Gaming platform, specifically with the aim being to improve the responsiveness of games when played on iPhones and iPads.

In a post to the Xbox website, Nicole Hilbert, Product Manager at Xbox & Akshar Pandia, Product Manager at Xbox, say that major performance improvements on all supported iPhones and iPads should now be expected.

We have heard from many of you that the experience is better. Here’s what we’ve seen so far from the improvements:

  • Positive Feedback: We have seen a significant increase in positive player feedback since implementing these changes.
  • Higher Engagement: 35% longer play times.

We invite those with an iPhone or iPad to try our improvements and give us your feedback so we can continue to make your gaming experience the best it can be!

Those who play games using Xbox Cloud Gaming on their iPhone and iPad should now notice improvements without the need to do anything special.

The next time you launch a game you should notice that things are better than before, although your mileage may vary — things like your internet connection speed and latency will still have a big bearing on how good your gaming experience will be.
