Bass on very small speakers

Hi, and thanks for being

Has the fact that a lot of people listen to music on the built-in iphone/ipad speakers and laptop-speakers changed the way you process bass when mixing?

I find this to be one of the biggest challenges at the moment. To give the illusion of bass on playback systems that don't have any. Thoughts?

Kind regards,

i still try to make it all translate on every system. I don't really mix any different because of earbuds. That'd be like only wanting my mixes to sound good on the worst system
I have quite a few speaker sources so when i am mixing i try and make sure its translating on everything .. if you only mix on really expensive speakers with tons of bottom i could see that being a problem but I think the music lives in the midrange anyway ...with a full frequency spectrum but plenty of midrange
the long and short of it is , i don't really get to caught up with making sure it sounds good only on the worst ... but good on all .. hopefully ...
