X-Plane Mobile Performance
The performance of X-Plane Mobile is tied directly to your hardware.
Newer devices provide the best experience with X-Plane Mobile because they generally have the most powerful hardware for X-Plane to use.
If your copy of X-Plane Mobile is running slowly, you can follow the steps below to adjust the Rendering Options. This will remove some graphical features from the simulator but it should make the app run more quickly and smoothly.
- Open X-Plane Mobile
- Tap the Settings gear icon in the bottom right corner of the home screen.
- Select Graphics on the top menu.
- Move the Graphics Level slider to modify this setting. The far right is the highest setting and the far left is the lowest setting.
As you move this slider, the list of enabled features will update in real time.
If you are purchasing a device specifically for X-Plane Mobile, the newest entry-level iPads present a great value. These devices can run X-Plane Mobile with all graphical features enabled.
