Sometimes being friends with someone is all about making sacrifices - you're just going to have to accept that some people like iPhones and some people like Android phones. But that doesn't have to limit your mobile gaming opportunities, and we've rounded up what we think are the five best iOS games with cross-platform capabilities.
Some of them let you play with friends on Android, some of them let you play with friends on PC as well. And if you swap devices, you're going to be able to continue your progress without a hitch.
We've included links so you can grab the games for iOS without too much of a hitch, and if you've got your own suggestions - maybe we're missing the cross platform game that you play the most? - make sure you let us know in the comments at the bottom of the article.
Hearthstone - download for iOS
One of those games that was born for cross-platform play. There's no real disadvantage whichever device you choose to play on, and you're going to be getting the same super-slick card-battling experience whatever you decide to play on.
PUBG - download for iOS
While Fortnite has cross platform play across everything it's been released on, PUBG keeps mobile separate. That means you're never going to come up against a keyboard warrior who can take you down with ease. Multiplayer games are best when everyone's on the same page, and that's something PUBG Mobile understands.
Spaceteam - download for iOS
You will need to get all of your friends in the same room for this one, but once they're there we reckon Spaceteam offers the most fun out of any of the games on this list. It's all about shouting out commands, pressing buttons, and making it as deep into space as you can in a ship that's constantly falling to bits.
Real Racing 3 - download for iOS
Thanks to the way that Real Racing 3 handles its multiplayer you've always got someone to play against, and it doesn't matter whether they're on an Android or iOS phone. The game might have divided the Real Racing community, but even now it's one of the best looking games on the App Store, and it's regularly updated with new content.
Minecraft - download for iOS
Minecraft seems to have fallen by the wayside in recent years, but it remains a creative and entertaining way to spend time with your friends. Build - break - survive is still the rhythm of play, but there are plenty of options for creating servers where you can let your architectural flare play out in a much more sedate way.
