Better yet, you don’t even need to download an app.

The entire system works directly through Safari, with support for over 100 games.

It’s called Xbox Cloud Gaming, and works with Xbox Game Pass Ultimate.

You stream games over the internet to your iPhone, which can then be played using a Bluetooth controller.

This means you can connect your standard Xbox controller to the iPhone or iPad and use that.

Game Pass Ultimate gives you access to more than 100 premium games for Xbox and PC.

It includes smash-hit titles, including ones from top-tier franchises like Halo.

The Pass is sort of like a Netflix for games, so you only have access to Game Pass titles while you’re subscribed.

But it also features some additional perks too, including in-game content, exclusive deals, partner offers and consumables – and Xbox Cloud Gaming.

This normally costs £10.99 a month, but there’s currently a sale that gets you the subscription for £1.

Better still, Microsoft is also throwing an extra two months in for free.

“We’re also making significant improvements to the overall experience,” said Microsoft.

“Xbox Cloud Gaming is now powered by custom Xbox Series X hardware.

“We’ve been upgrading Microsoft data centres around the globe with the fastest, most powerful Xbox hardware.

“To give you faster load times, improved frame rates, and an experience of a new generation of gaming.”

Microsoft says that to ensure the lowest latency and best experience across devices, streaming will be capped at 1080p up to 60 frames per second.
