Do I need the Backbone iOS App to use Backbone One?

The Backbone iOS app is not required for your Backbone One to work with games. However, the Backbone One iOS app offers a rich, community-driven experience that we think you will really love!

Backbone+ gives players access to:

  • Exclusive perks, like free months of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, other service free trials, in-game items, and many more perks to come.
  • Access to the revamped Backbone app, including the trove of new features above as well as future ones.

If you don't redeem your 1 free year, or decide not to subscribe, the app will still automatically install new software updates to the device to help maintain compatibility with future versions of iOS as well give you access to device info.
