Apple Working on iOS Controller

Apple might be working on a controller for iPhones, iPod touches and iPads, which would end one of the major problems with using those devices as gaming consoles.

The news comes from AnandTech, where writers Vivek Gowri & Anand Lal Shimpio post:

“I know of an internal Apple project to bring a physical controller to market, but whether or not it will ever see the light of day remains to be seen. As smartphones and tablets come close to equaling the performance of current game consoles, I feel like the controller problem must be addressed.”

Apple has always stated that the touch screen was just fine for iOS gaming, so it will be interesting to see how they plan on marketing this. Business wise this is a big win no loss situation for Apple, so hopefully this means we will be seeing improved game controls on tablets in the future.
