SteelSeries Stratus Wireless Controller For iOS

The new SteelSeries Stratus Wireless Controller is not the first device taking advantage of iOS 7's support for game controllers, but it certainly is the first that disposed of the cord in favour of Bluetooth connectivity.

In contrast to Logitech’s PowerShell and Moga’s AcePower that went on sale earlier this year, the Stratus Wireless Controller does not feature a form-fitting design and a built-in Lightning dock. As a result, it is compatible with both iPhones and iPads. It is also lighter and smaller, and offers only the necessary controls. Those include dual analog joysticks, face buttons, an extra pair of shoulder triggers above the d-pad, and a single set of knobs on Apple's standard layout.

As far as battery life is concerned, the controller is promised to provide over 10 hours of wireless play.

The SteelSeries Stratus Controller is priced at $100 and can be purchased from the company's website.
