Besides being an MFi accessory, your iPhone’s touch screen can also be put to use for additional controlling options

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.
