Apple Arcade has one of the best features available for gamers – I’m talking about cross-platforming. Basically, this means that you can keep your progress across all of your Apple devices. So if you start playing on your Mac and you have to go, you can continue playing on your iPhone right where you left off.

Enabling this useful feature is extremely easy. All you need to do is to sign in to your iCloud, and your Game Center accounts in each of your devices. Most of you will already have your accounts set up, but in case you share your devices with someone else, or if you don’t see your gaming progress across other devices, here’s how you can check if you’re signed in to your iCloud and Game Center accounts.

Things to Keep in Mind

  • First, make sure you’re signing in with the same Apple ID that you’re using in your Apple Arcade subscription.
  • Also, if you can’t see your progress on other devices, check to see if you have the same Apple ID on all of the devices using Apple Arcade.

Check Your iCloud and Game Center Accounts on Mac

Usually, if you share your Mac with someone else, you only need to be logged in to your own profile to have your accounts ready. However, if you still want to change them, do the following:

  1. Click on the Apple logo on the upper left corner of your screen, then select System Preferences.
  2. Select “Internet Accounts.” If you can’t spot it, you can use the search bar on top of the window.
  3. Once in, you’ll see all the accounts you’ve signed in to. You should see your iCloud and Game Center accounts.
  4. To change or delete an account, just select it and then click on the “-” button on the lower-left corner.
  5. Also, if you don’t see your iCloud or your Game Center account set up, you can click on the “+” button on the lower-left corner.
  6. Click on “Add Other Account…” to select your Game Center Account.

Check Your iCloud and Game Center Accounts on iPhone/iPad

To check your iCloud account:

  1. Go to the Settings app.
  2. Scroll down to the “Passwords & Accounts” settings. You can also search for it in the search bar at the top.
  3. Select iCloud. You’ll see the account that’s signed in.
  4. To log out, scroll down to the bottom and click on Sign Out.

To check your Game Center account:

  1. Go to the Settings app.
  2. Scroll down the settings until you see Game Center. You can also search for it.
  3. Select it and you’ll see your profile. To change it, just scroll down and click on Sign Out.

Check Your iCloud and Game Center Accounts on Apple TV

Unlike Mac computers, every time you switch users on your Apple TV, you’ll need to sign in and out of your accounts manually. Follow these steps so you can check to see if you’re signed in with the correct account:

  1. Go to the Settings app.
  2. Select “Users and Accounts.”
  3. There you can check your Game Center and iCloud Accounts. Just like the other devices, you can Sign out and change your account whenever you want.
