RetroArch Emulator Brings Tons Of Classic Gaming Platforms To iPhone, iPad, Vision Pro And Apple TV

Game emulators were once the kind of thing that people were forced to jailbreak their iPhones to be able to install, but following the recent decision by Apple to allow them into the App Store, that’s no longer the case.

We’ve seen a few new emulators make their debut in recent days, and now RetroArch is another that we can add to the list.

The RetroArch app actually works on the iPad, Apple TV, and Apple Vision Pro, not just the iPhone and it offers people access to games on a whole range of different platforms, so long as they have the required file that is.
