Logitech MFi Game Controller Image Leaked
An image of what might be Logitech’s upcoming MFi controller for the iPhone has recently been leaked on Twitter by @evleaks
, who has been to known to provide several reliable images in the past. The enclosure controller seems to wrap around the iPhone, adding buttons and controls on both sides of the phone. The image resembles the design seen in an earlier prototype which was leaked back in June and also fits with teaser images that Logitech released just a few weeks ago.
Although the controller in the image is an enclosure model, other available models are said to be standalone controllers that won’t require an attachment to an iPhone or an iPad to function.
It should be noted that in addition to the Logitech gamepad, GameCase also released a trailer for its GameCase iPhone controller, which connects via Bluetooth and is battery operated.
For those of you who didn’t already know, news of MFi controllers first surfaced in June after Apple debuted the controller API at WWDC 2013. Since the release of iOS 7, many games have incorporated Game Controller Support, including several major titles such as Walking Dead and Bastion. Although no controllers have made it to the market yet, the appearance of controller support in games and continuing hardware leaks points toward an imminent release, possibly during Apple’s rumored iPad-focused Fall event.
