I was always a fan of motorsports and a huge player of the Need for Speed games on PC. However, there was a drought of good racing games. Thankfully, there are numerous racing games to try on your iPhone. These range from simulation racers to arcade racing games, this list contains the best racing games for the iPhone, as per me.

The Best Racing games for IOS  

Asphalt 9: Legends  

I mean who doesn’t know the Asphalt series has been the frontrunner for the best arcade racing games for nearly every device? Asphalt 8 is the most famous installment yet. Some may even say Asphalt 9: Legends has cemented the series’ legacy.  

The game features a range of hypercars you can choose from, all from real-world car manufacturers such as Lamborghini, Ferrari, and many more. The game features real-world locations, however with a twist. There are innumerable, breathtaking stunts to perform while you attempt to win the race against the best arcade racers across the world.  

You can swing with the help of a tornado to gain some momentum. OR. Jump across an 80-meter-wide canyon just to get the adrenaline pumping. Asphalt 9: Legends has the most flamboyant as well as entertaining racing experience you can find on your mobile screens. The game is free to play (In-app purchases start at $1.99)  

Real Racing 3  

Real Racing 3 is one of the most popular racing games on the App Store. Ever since its release, it has undergone constant refinement to provide the best experience for the players.  

This game hosts 40 different tracks from 19 locations all around the globe. On top of that, there are 250 real cars you can choose from. These include Porsche, Bugatti, and Audi, along with other famous car manufacturers.  

Due to the gameplay and graphics being so detailed and meticulously refined, it’s recommended that you acquire a good gaming controller to experience this game at its finest. Moreover, this will provide you with more control over your racing experience. The game is free to play (In-app purchases start at $1.99) 


CSR2 was initially praised mostly for its graphics upon its release. Since then, after multiple gameplay improvements, it has become one of the most realistic racing simulators you can find for mobile phones/tablets.   

From the 1960s to the 1990s, you can get your hands on the best cars of every generation. You can collect as well as customize them. The game also provides a feature called “Legends workshop,” which allows you to restore these classic cars to glory.  

On the gameplay side, you have the ability to tune nearly everything. Be it the tire pressure or gear ratios. You can also change the settings to suit your playstyle. The game is free to play (In-app purchases start at $1.99)  

F1 Mobile Racing  

If you ever played F1 racing games on consoles, you might have an idea that these games have high standards. Fortunately, F1 Mobile Racing lives up to the same standards on handheld devices.  

Apart from the stunning visuals, you have the ability to build your F1 car. You have to race against the best such as Lewis Hamilton as well as Fernando Alonso, while you attempt to reach the top.  

You can compete in events to acquire powerful gear, to customize your car for particular races on different tracks and with different weather dynamics. After you get accustomed to the game, you can go and compete against players online for a spot on the leaderboards. The game is free to play (In-app purchases start at $0.99)  

Forza Street: Tap to Race  

While the Forza series has been known to those who play on consoles as an intimidating racing simulator. However, Forza Street: Tap to Race notches down the difficulty factor to allow casual players to enjoy the ride and have a great experience.  

The races can sometimes be as short as a minute. OR. You can play the immersive story mode that provides you with a lot more freedom. The key to winning these races is to properly time your boost, gas, as well as brake buttons. The wrong timing will end up costing you the victory.  

As you keep playing the game, you will unlock numerous cars which can be upgraded. You can decide if you want more acceleration/speed or more control/handling.  

You also have the ability to play the game online in epic 1v1 races in a boss-battle setup. The game is free to play (In-app purchases start at $1.99)  

Bonus –  

Though all of the above games are great to play on your iPhone, the bonus game could replace any of the above ones. The only reason it couldn’t make the cut was that this is the only one that costs money, I mean others do have in-app purchases, but are generally free to download and play.   

Riptide GP: Renegade  

Riptide GP: Renegade is not just a usual racing game. This game does not feature hyper-realistic cars. OR. It does not track locations from all around the world. Instead, in this game, you race against other players using your hydro-powered jet.  

This is another arcade racing game for players who are looking for something slightly different from the ordinary. In the single-player, you have been forced out of the Riptide GP league, then you are forced to make your name through illegal races. This story set gives somewhat of an NFS: Most Wanted vibe to this game. Instead of dodging cops through tunnels on hypercars, you dodge the police through waterways on your hydro-powered jets.  

You have to Play through the single-player to unlock numerous upgrades. A better jet will increase your ability to perform more death-defying tricks at breakneck speeds. The concept of the tracks being on the water and not on the road gives this game and its players more creative freedom.  

You also have the ability to play the game online with up to 8 players for the ultimate water racing experience. This is Priced at $2.99
