ClamCase Announces First iOS 7 Gamepad

ClamCase is one of the first accessory makers to take advantage of Apple's MFi (Made for iOS) game controller support in iOS 7. Apple previewed the new feature during an event called "Integrating with Game Controllers" at WWDC in June.


The Bluetooth gamepad features full-sized buttons, thumbstick controls and a built-in lithium-ion battery. Players can also use their iOS device's integrated gyroscope and accelerometer for "3D motion," and will still have access to their iPhone's touch-based controls while using the GameCase.

Apple is Working with Logitech and Other Developers on Designing an iOS Game Controller

Back in April, PocketGamer claimed Apple secretly met with developers at the annual Game Developers Conference to discuss production of an unnamed iOS "joypad". It was then discovered at the Worldwide Developers Conference on Monday, that Apple had added MFi (Made for iOS) game controller support to iOS 7. Apple followed up the MFi announcement by holding a 45-minute long session on Tuesday, where they showed developers app frameworks and hardware mock-ups for third-party iOS controllers, according to Apple Insider.

The event was entitled "Integrating with Game Controllers", and Apple revealed that both Logitech and Moga were already collaborating on some prototypes. Apple also showed two mock-ups of a "form-fitting" design, and a standalone device for both the iPhone and iPad. Both controllers featured the standard D-pad and dual analog sticks seen in most home console controllers these days. The form-fitting model turns the iPhone into a gamepad that and frees up space on its smaller display, and the standalone mock-up is a wireless device that does not need to connect to the iPhone or iPad to work. Both controller mock-ups featured a dedicated pause button, pressure-sensitive buttons and non-drifting D-pads.
