Ask any iPhone or iPad user what the best free iOS game is, and most of them are going to say it’s Pokemon Go. Undoubtedly, Pokemon Go has taken the gaming world by storm. But you may start losing interest in it if you play the same game every day. There is credible evidence that the popularity of Pokemon Go has started declining in the United States. Here are the best free iPhone games in no particular order (excluding Pokemon Go) that you can download:
