If you play games on your iPhone, chances are you already know about the many excellent iPhone controllers you can choose from. Well, you can add two more to that list, courtesy of GameSir. The popular gaming peripheral manufacturer has just launched the new X2 Bluetooth model of the incredibly successful Gamesir X2 Type C mobile gaming controller as well as the GameSir F7 Claw Tablet Game Controller, which releases on May 24th.
The X2 Bluetooth Mobile Gaming Controller is the successor to GameSir X2 Type C mobile gaming controller and is designed to give users an outstanding gaming experience, and is ideal for those who use Apple Arcade. Now equipped with Bluetooth, the X2 model is designed to provide a full array of controls and minimize lag to provide an optimal gaming experience.
It features left and right sticks, traditional face buttons, and even trigger buttons, as well as a 500 mAh battery that promises up to 20 hours of gameplay. The simple design is also compatible with a modern iPhone, so long as they measure up to at least 173mm.
The F7 Claw is GameSir's attempt at creating the world's first capacitive gamepad for tablets. The F7 Claw is designed for games that feature on-screen control games where, unlike Bluetooth controllers where the user has to install other apps for key mapping, users can start playing directly without this extra effort.
The controller attaches to the sides of the tablet and features trigger buttons as well as turbo buttons, useful for FPS and TPS games. The combination of both physical and touch controls simulates a traditional controller. The F7 Claw also boasts a whopping 120 hours of playtime after just one charge.
Both controllers seem like exceptional choices for gamers who prefer gaming on their Apple devices and should work well, whether you're adventuring in Genshin Impact, building in Roblox, or diving into one of the many great Apple Arcade titles. The X2 Bluetooth Mobile Gaming Controller will cost $60 and is available now, while the F7 Claw will set you back $40.
