iPhone Running iOS 8 Can Be Used As Controller To Play Games On iPad, Mac

The mobile gaming platform has certainly been uplifted by Apple’s iOS over the years gone but the involvement of the third-party game pad compatibility with Made for iPhone (MFi) controller support didn’t quite pull off the way it was intended though initially it did receive a warm response. The groundwork was already taken care of when Apple allowed iPhones (and their MFi peripherals) to serve as controllers for the wider ecosystem, going way beyond the iPads and Macs and now Apple just wants to expand upon this concept.

Mobile phones enhancing console games is a common concept and over the recent few years, we have known how to make use of smartphones to serve as second screens and companion apps, offering maps, tips, and other such novelties at our fingertips when in-game. But the new controller forwarding feature is taking things a notch further; it will allow MFi gadgets like the just-announced Razer Junglecat to be used to control a game on iPad or Mac, as revealed by 9to5Mac.

Besides being an MFi accessory, your iPhone’s touch screen can also be put to use for additional controlling options which will give you control options which your keyboard, trackpad or touch-based iPad display never could.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
