With the advent of officially supported iOS 7 controllers, many types of games that weren’t always a perfect fit for a touch interface — like shooters, racing games, and 3D adventures — suddenly have an opportunity to shine much brighter on iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. Now you don’t need a dedicated gaming box to experience a wider array of really excellent experiences. Here are our current picks for the 25 best games that support iOS 7 controllers, and we’ll be updating this list from time to time as even more stellar games add support or are released.
The holiday season increasingly looks like it'll be an interesting time for gaming, and not just because of the release of the new Xbox One and PS4 consoles on the near horizon. We've already seen leaks for Logitech's iPhone gamepad in response to Apple's declared support for "Made for iPhone" (MFi) controllers with iOS 7, and today MacRumors reports that another one has surfaced from MOGA.
It's a good time to be a fan of the gaming consoles of yesteryear. As iMore reports, Amiga Games announced today that some of its classic titles will be making their way to iOS "in time for the 2013 holiday season," which should be just about the time that the new Made for iPhone (MFi) controllers make their official debut.
After months of waiting and mere speculation, a leaked image of what could be Logitech's long-awaited gamepad for the iPhone surfaced today on the @evleaks Twitter account. As TechCrunch reports, @evleaks has a good record when it comes to presenting leaks from companies like Samsung and Nokia, so there's a good chance that what we're seeing is legit.
Mac gamers aren't quite the mythical breed that they used to be, and it looks as though Apple itself is finally starting to catch onto that development. As AppleInsider reports, Apple held a 45-minute-long meeting at WWDC focusing on supporting licensed third-party gaming controllers for iOS 7, outlining the promise of the new APIs and even presenting some prototypes.
