Best Controller Mounts for iPhone iMore 2020

Have you ever wished that you could play your favorite PlayStation 4 games on-the-go with your iPhone? That can actually happen, thanks to the free PS4 Remote Play app. But to get the most enjoyment out of remotely streaming PS4 games, you're going to want a good game controller that can also hold your iPhone, eliminating the need to get a separate stand or coming up with an elaborate setup. Here are some of the best controller mounts for your iPhone on the market.

Have a riot: Rotor Riot MFi Certified Gamepad Controller

Staff favorite

Rotor Riot's MFi gamepad controller provides a full-size controller for your iPhone gaming experience. It also offers L3 and R3 functionality, which few other controllers offer. It can charge up while you play, and there is little lag and latency since it's a wired controller, so you get the best gaming sessions possible.

Game and dream on: Megadream Wireless MFi Game Controller with Clamp Holder

This affordable gamepad is comfortable to hold and lasts 24-30 hours on a single charge. The gamepad works with many different types of games (as long as the developer added gamepad support), and it comes in black or white. The clamp holds your mobile phone, but you can also use the gamepad without it.

DualShock 4 all the way: OIVO PS4 Controller Phone Mount

If you prefer to use your DualShock 4 to play games on your iPhone, this clip clamp easily attaches to your DualShock 4 controller in a few steps. Once it's on, it's sturdy enough to your iPhone in the holder, and it's easy to remove if need be.

Universal gaming: WEPIGEEK Foldable Controller Phone Mount

Play smarter, not harder: Nyko Smart Clip for DualShock 4 Controller

Nyko is a trusted name in gaming accessories, and the Smart Clip simply attaches to your existing DualShock 4 controller. It holds most smartphones up to 6-inches in screen size and provides six different viewing angles. This one is best not to be removed once you put it on.

Simple gaming: YF2009 Wireless Gaming Controller with Adjustable Clamp

Get your game on

With the PS4 Remote Play app, you can take your favorite PS4 games on-the-go with your iPhone. But again, to get the best experience, you don't want to deal with touch screen controls, so a gamepad is a must. These game controllers with phone mounts let you attach your iPhone to your game controller, making it a perfect handheld gaming system.

Our favorite among these is the Rotor Riot because it can even charge up while you play, giving you infinite gaming time, and it has the least latency with a wired connection and L3/R3 buttons. But if you prefer using DualShock 4 for your gaming (and it's possible thanks to iOS 13's support for DualShock 4 and Xbox One S controllers), then the OIVO PS4 Controller Mount Clip is a great and simple solution that won't break the bank.
