Logitech portable game controller made for iPhone 5 and up

Logitech has announced a new gaming controller designed specifically for Lighting-equipped devices and iOS 7. The controller is similar to the MOGA Ace Power unveiled earlier this week.
 
Logitech calls its new controller the Powershell Controller + Battery. The controller offers analog on-screen controls including a d-pad, shoulder triggers, and face buttons offering more control over video games. This Logitech controller has no analog joysticks.
 
“We designed this controller to deliver a true console-gaming experience on an iOS 7 mobile device,” said Ehtisham Rabbani, general manager of the Logitech gaming business. “With gaming so pervasive on the mobile platform – our research shows that 87% of iPhone and iPod touch users play games on their device – it’s time to revolutionize the experience.”

 
With your Apple device inside the controller, users will maintain full access to the power switch, volume, camera, speakers, headphone jack, and charging port. The Logitech controller has its own internal 1500 mAh battery to extend the runtime of your device while gaming. The controller is compatible with the iOS 7 game controller framework and supports any game that takes advantage of that framework.
 
The Logitech PowerShell Controller + Battery controller is available now for $99.99 at BestBuy.com and the Apple Online Store. Expanded retail availability around the world will happen in December.
