At the end of August 2016, Sergey Surkov released Tavlei for the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch. The game runs on any device that supports iOS 8 or better.  I couldn't find much detail on this game (and have no Apple device on which to run it) but the screen shots provided on iTunes give some clues as to the game's features.

Tavley has three modes of play: two players on one device, one player against the computer, or multi-player using the Game Center.

Tavlei puts the usual hnefatafl rules inside a kind of strategic component, with a map of countries that you are to conquer.  So much I could discern through the screen shots.

If you want to investigate Tavlei further, you can get it from its iTunes page. Tomorrow I'll be looking at another Android hnefatafl game.
