With the release of iOS 7, Apple finally recognized the demand for physical gamepads via built-in support through its Made for iPhone/iPad/iPod (MFi) program, which means all game developers and peripheral manufacturers alike can use the same compatibility standards. Now, any game that supports iOS 7 controllers should work with any MFi gamepad — in theory, at least. That hasn't exactly worked out thus far, with at least one game only compatible with a certain early controller, and a few titles that work better on some gamepads than others. If you're thinking about investing in an iOS 7 game controller now, here's a concise look at the strengths and weaknesses of each, complete with our review scores from the full appraisals.
Roughly the same width at its widest point as an iPhone (2.25 inches) but only two-thirds the length (3.25 inches), Logitech’s Ultrathin Touch Mouse for Mac is light as a feather at less than 2.5 ounces.

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.
Looking to fill the room with big sound from your Bluetooth-enabled mobile device without wires of any kind? The folks at Ultimate Ears have just unveiled the latest member of its lineup that may just fit the bill.
The iPhone can do virtually anything, but can it be turned into a universal home theatre remote control? Accessory maker Logitech rebounds from the ill-fated Harmony Link by pairing an improved smartphone app with a remote control easy enough for everyone in the family to use.
Magic Mouse, you've been put on notice: Logitech has just unveiled a slim new touch-enabled mouse that looks great next to the latest Mac computers and is perfect for notebook users constantly on the go.
If there's one thing as potentially lucrative as the iPad, it's the market for iPad accessories, particularly cases used to protect them — and few companies build them as well as Logitech, which debuted two new folios this week.
