Apple do not support flash, I thought that was widely known.

There may be some kind of third party support - try searching the web.

If flash is very important to you to play on a mobile device. Your only two options is a windows phone/tablet or an android. But flash on android is only supported up to 11.2.x. Any website requiring flash beyond 11.2 then you're out of luck.

You could use a search engine future_computer, they are handy.

In April 2010, Steve Jobs, the co-founder and then-chief executive officer of Apple Inc.[1] published an open letter explaining why Apple wouldn't allow Flash on the iPhone, iPod touch and iPad.

Quote:
Adobe’s Flash platform is not supported by Apple for iOS devices, despite being supported on the Mac with the appropriate plug-in install after your initial setup.

Snip!

To view Flash based content on your iOS device, you will need a third party web browser app that supports this functionality. One that is available is called Photon Flash Player. Please be aware that we are not endorsing this app, we are merely pointing out that it exists.

flash is old technology, buggy and resource hungry. It's time for more websites to use more html5 content.

You are correct, my mistake, Google doesn't support flash on any mobile device anymore.

Sorry future_computer while Chrome runs pepperflash on everything else mobile devices (Android and iOS) don't get pepperflash.
