The Fourth Industrial Revolution and its associated technological advancements have opened the door for the rapid and widespread adoption of mobile devices like smartphones and tablets.
Klaus Schwab, founder and executive chairman of the World Economic Forum describes the Fourth Industrial Revolution as a “fundamental change in the way we live, work and relate to one another. It is a new chapter in human development, enabled by extraordinary technology advances commensurate with those of the first, second and third industrial revolutions.”
Additionally, the current global lockdown and need for social distancing have dramatically increased the world’s mobile phone adoption and usage. Current statistics, quoted by statista.com, show that 3.5 billion global netizens have smartphones and have assimilated them into a core part of their daily lives, from entertainment, email, social media, to online shopping, and virtual communications. Succinctly stated, there is an app for everything.
Buildfire.com notes that there are 2.8 million apps available for download on the Google Play Store, and 2.2 million apps available for download from the Apple App Store.
Therefore the question that begs is not whether you should use a sports betting mobile app like the 1xBet mobile app, rather it is how you gain access to the sportsbook’s mobile app.
Let’s answer this question by looking at how to download and install the app for the Apple platform. As an aside, installing the Android app is a different process, but, it isn’t within the scope of this discussion. The easy-to-follow instructions to install an Android app will be on the sportsbook’s website.
Downloading and installing the Apple iPhone app
The Apple iOS (iPhone and iPad operating system) is considered a closed ecosystem or walled garden. Essentially, this translates into the fact that the only way you can download and install an iOS app is via the App Store. You cannot install the app by downloading the install file from a third-party website.
Consequently, downloading and installing the iOS app is a simple process. Often the most challenging part of the whole process is to create an Apple App Store account with a username and password.
Let’s assume that you have a valid Apple account. The next step is to open the App Store app and search for the sportsbook’s mobile app. Another way to find the app is to navigate your way to the sportsbook’s website on your iPhone and click on the download app button. The website will open the correct page in the App Store’s app.
The final step is to click on the app’s install icon. The app will then automatically download and install itself, leaving an app icon on one of the iPhone’s home screen pages.
As described above, the use of a mobile app to access your sports betting account is becoming an imperative. When you use the app, you can place bets from anywhere and anytime during a 24 hour period, three hundred sixty five days a year.
