    iPhone sales have now passed the billion mark, and this number shows no signs of slowing down. Recent releases of the iPhone 12 Pro Max and Mini have changed the smartphone landscape in regard to photography and filmmaking, but as a whole, the sector that has arguably benefitted greatest from the mass production and distribution of iPhones has been gambling.

    The online gambling market is currently valued at over $50 billion, and that figure is expected to almost double in the next five years. With online gambling now more popular than ever, sites are looking at new ways to revolutionise the industry – but what are these? And how successful have they proven thus far?

    iPhone Gambling

    Thanks to the invention of smartphones, and the technological advancements Apple have provided via iPhones, the act of placing a bet is now easier than ever before. Moving gambling online has proven so popular that companies are looking at new methods to attract punters to their sites. Bingo was long seen as something that was exclusive to a brick-and-mortar location, but due to advancements in mobile graphic quality and the ever-increasing availability of smartphones, Bingo has moved online to great success.

    Spotting the success that Bingo has achieved since moving online, other popular gambling methods have recently attempted to replicate Bingo and reinvent themselves as an online gambling option. The range of online scratch cards at Bingo Betfair now exceeds that available in most shops, and the prizes available outperform their real-life equivalent. And of course, it's possible to play these through a native iOS app. With the quality of these scratch cards likely to only increase as the quality of mobile graphics improves, expect this form of gambling to become significantly more popular in the coming years.

    Gambling companies have shifted their focus away from brick-and-mortar locations and are now spending more and more time trying to attract new gamblers to their online platforms. The increase of iPhones available worldwide has brought about a raft of new customers available to online gambling companies. The widescale rollout of both 4G and 5G technology and 5G-ready iPhone models has resulted in online gambling sites becoming accessible for people in even the most remote of locations, and this is something that has undoubtedly been picked up by gambling companies.

    The notable rise in the quality of apps produced by gambling companies, and of mobile graphics used in their casino games, has resulted in more people deciding to gamble online. This has, in a large part, come via the burgeoning iPhone market, and as sales of the device continue to rise, expect increased participation of gambling by iPhone users.

    As traditional games such as Bingo and scratch cards successfully reinvent themselves as an online gambling option, expect similar methods of gambling to attempt to replicate this move online. Whilst it would be a mistake to claim that online gambling's success is due solely to the iPhone, it would be fair to say that the two have undoubtedly helped to raise each other's profiles – this relationship can be expected to continue to thrive in the immediate future.
