When it comes to mobile gaming, Apple Arcade is hard to beat. With over 100 games and still more, there is something for everyone to play. That said, the ever-growing list of titles can make it difficult to find the games that are right for you. That’s why Apple Arcade’s sorting and filtering tools are essential for any subscriber.

To find these tools, open the App Store, open the “Arcade” tab, scroll down to the bottom of the page and tap “View All Games”. Now tap on “Release Date” at the top of the screen to view it Filters menu. Here you see three categories:
- Sort on: It allows you to sort titles by release date, last updated, name or category. Release Date and Last Updated display results from the current date, while the name and category are listed alphabetically.
- Filter by: It allows you to filter titles for controller support, multiplayer games and different age ratings. The latter allows you to choose from “All”, “4+”, “9+” or “12+”.
- Include: It allows you to remove or include titles that are coming soon, ie not yet released.
When you’re done choosing your options, tap Done. If you just switched to a different sort option, that option will be displayed at the top of the page. So you will see either Release Date, Last Updated, Name or Category listed there.
However, if you add or change filters from the default values, or deselect the Coming Soon option, you will instead see “Filters (#)” at the top of the page, with the number of filters applied in parentheses.
