How to view leaderboards, achievements, and more with Game Center on iPhone and iPad

If you play a lot of multiplayer games on your iPhone or iPad and have a Game Center account, you can easily create matches and play against your friends. Game Center is also great for tracking achievements inside a game as well as leaderboard standings between you and your friends.

Not sure how to access them? Follow along.

  1. Launch the Game Center app from the Home screen of your iPhone or iPad.
  2. Tap on the Games tab in the bottom navigation.
  3. Find the game that you'd like to view leaderboards and achievements for and tap on its name. Notice that some may not have any and that's typically dependent upon whether or not that specific game has support for them built-in.
  4. Here you can toggle between leaderboards, achievements, and who is playing that game out of your friends. Tapping into any of the leaderboards or achievements will show you how you rank against all your friends.

Achievements are also a great place to look to see what you've unlocked and achieved in different games. Sometimes I like to go back even after beating a game and try to unlock the achievements that I wasn't able to get the first time around.
