How to accept Game Center friend requests on iPhone and iPad

If you have an iPhone or iPad, you've got Game Center. Once you log in, you're ready to start playing games with other opponents. You can share your Game Center ID with others and receive invites to become friends. From there you can view each other's achievements and challenge each other to games. If you aren't sure how to accept a Game Center friend request, here's how.

While you can always accept friend requests as soon as they come in by tapping on the notification, you can also accept multiple invites at once or accept individual ones at your own liesure.

  1. Launch the Game Center app from the Home screen of your iPhone or iPad.
  2. Tap on the Requests tab on the bottom right of the lower navigation menu.
  3. Here you'll see a list of all the people that are requesting to be friends with you.
  4. Either tap on individual names and tap the Accept or Ignore button or scroll down to the bottom and you'll see an Accept All and Ignore All button. Choose one of them.

That's it. The contacts will either be added to your Game Center friends list or rejected based on which option you chose.
