 Exploring the Potential of Apple Watch Gaming

Throughout the 1990s, Apple tried numerous new products, many of which failed dismally. It was only upon the return of Steve Jobs as CEO in 1997 that the fortunes of the company began to turn around. Jobs managed to tap into the zeitgeist and spearheaded the development of a range of products that would dominate their markets for years to come – the iPod, iPad, and iPhone. Since launching the first of these, Apple has gone from strength to strength as a market leader for mobile electronic devices. Most recently, the Apple Watch has taken convenience and portability to new levels.

Apple Watch's Impact on Mobile Gaming

Evolution or Revolution? Apple smartwatches

The Apple Watch smartwatch series has now reached its sixth incarnation, with the release of the Apple Watch Series 6 and the Apple Watch SE. Both retain all the great features customers have come to expect from an Apple Watch plus some new additions, including fitness tracking, a cellular option for calling and texting, and even a feature that identifies when you should wash your hands and for how long. The Apple Watch SE is more affordable, with a few fewer features and a different processor.

Apple has also begun to tap into the lucrative mobile gaming market by providing a range of simple but addictive games that can be played directly through the smartwatch. While the low screen resolution and minimal options for controllers mean more complex games will have to wait, there are plenty of great games available at the App Store that have been optimized to be played through the Apple Watch.
