There is a wide selection of MFi game controllers out there, most of which enhance many of the games we play everyday on our iOS devices. For some gamers out there, those soft controls just don’t cut it. After Apple dropped the details on this year’s hardware lineup (and more) yesterday, it looks like Gamevice will be one of the first out of the gate with its upcoming iPhone 6s and iPad Air controllers:
Much like its already available controller for iPad mini, the new Gamevice iPhone 6 and iPad Air series gamepads will essentially open up to snap onto either end of your device. In terms of design, they work similar to the now $9 iPhone 5 series Logitech Powershell. You can expect all the usual fixings here, including 4 face buttons, dual bumper/trigger shoulder buttons, a D-pad and dual analog sticks. Both models will pack in additional battery power via your Lightning port.
The iPhone 6 series controller will work with the new iPhone 6s/6s Plus and last year’s models. Both iPad Air 1 and 2 will slide nicely into the Air series. Just like the iPad mini version, all three will sell for $99.99, but you’ll have to wait until later this year for the new iPhone 6 and iPad Air options (“Q4” and October respectively).
If the snap-on style doesn’t appeal to you, be sure to check out the new Steelseries Nimbus.
