    Hi! I am getting an iPhone 5 and I am wondering if the save files of the games that are compatible with both iPad and iPhone that I have played on my iPad will be available on my iPhone since I am using the same apple ID?

    Yup! They run the same apps and the same OS, after all. :) (Saves aren't actually tied to your Apple ID, by the way. I've come across a visual novel where the save data was tied to a UDID though.)

    If you're not familiar with how to transfer the save data, you'll have to either use your iPad's backup on your new iPhone, or manually copy everything with a third-party tool (the free version of iExplorer should do the trick). Some (but not all) games like Jetpack Joyride do sync your data with iCloud though, so you should be able to pick up where you left off from your iPad.
