Will GRID also feature rumble support? It would be excellent if the iPhone 7 was able to use the haptic rumble, and older phones use the phones rumble feature as an option (to save battery if you're not interested) - a lack of rumble is the number 1 thing I tend to miss with mobile gaming over console gaming

Rumble would be pretty awesome!

I'd still pick Apple TV support above it in priority though

Premium or Freeium?

Anyway, this makes it very hard to shell out $$$ for other new racing games between now and Autumn.

Hope so, since F1 2016 is ATV Universal, I have some confident in this department.

"Buy once, race forever" - Feral are definitely my favorite dev for iOS since they really are at the forfront of premium gaming and porting AAA games to iOS, check out the Total war games on iOS for example - really well ported and a good premium price

Obviously no one is developing AAA for iOS, but what's the point of all those multi-core GPUs if what we get is mostly fidget spinners and endless puzzles, with occasional PC port
Serious iOS gaming has been dead for many years and yes there's really no need for the gpus apple puts in iPhones and iPads these days. Hell I game, or used to game since nothing is being released nowadays, on a iPad air2 and there's nothing pushing the device to its limits. Maybe the shadowgun and oceanhorn 2 .

"I don't game anymore because there are no good games being released, and yet HERE I AM hanging out on a mobile gaming site."

Makes sense.

I have posted, what 1-2 posts in the last year or so. Still waiting for a surprise game here and there, which unfortunately doesn't seem to come.

Well you're going to have to keep waiting I'm afraid. Games with cutting edge visuals are expensive to create, and more importantly than that, are not practical on a mobile device with extremely limited battery.

With an audience who complains about prices even as low as $5 and with no major battery technology breakthroughs on the horizon it makes absolutely no sense to make a game pushing the hardware limits of an iOS device. If graphics are the most important thing to you then you should be gaming on console or PC.

P.S: You have posted 35 times in the past year, fyi.
