GameCase is the first MFi controller to be unveiled for iOS 7by Sayan Chakravarty
Close to almost 100 days after announcement, Apple finally made iOS 7 available for download on Wednesday. Now that the new iOS supports MFi (Made-for-iOS) traditional game controllers, there are a lot of speculations and rumors on the look and feel of the add-ons. Logitech and PowerA were the first to officially announce they are working on MFi controllers, rather we did see a leaked image of a purported Logitech controller, but ClamCase – known for their keypad line-up for iPads – is the first company to unveil an iOS controller named ‘GameCase’. The company has released rendered images and a video of GameCase and it looks amazing.
The controller has slide-into design with dual analog thumbsticks, action buttons, triggers, shoulder buttons and a d-pad. The controller will connect to iOS devices via Bluetooth and is powered by an in-built lithium-ion battery. At least if we go by the renderings, the slick design, textured grip and silver finish makes it one of the best looking controllers. ClamCase is still working on the controller and its design. Prices and availability of GameCase has not been disclosed as of yet but we expect a late 2013 or early 2014 release.
