Wow, 2013 huh? What a year it has been for iOS. There has been new hardware taking it to a whole new level: the iPad Air and mini, iPhone 5S and 5C, all with their 64-bit A7 chipped grunt under the hood.
New software: the iOS 7 update has arguably been the most significant change since the platform released late last decade.
New peripherals: with iOS 7 came physical controller support, which is both figuratively and literally a game changer.
And games, games and more games. We've seen huge console and PC series get exclusive iOS spin-offs, ports of classics we never thought we'd be able to play again, big triple A iOS exclusive titles, and more indie gaming goodness and innovation - both big and small, casual and hardcore - than we ever thought possible. Truly something for everyone.
