If you're an avid mobile gamer using services such as Apple Arcade, but you're not a big fan of mobile controls, you may be the target audience for one of the many iPhone mounting clips on the market.

Apple fans have more than likely heard of OtterBox at least once in their lifetimes. They're known for creating durable protective gear for iOS devices, with one of the more pricey selections out there.

Recently the company has dipped their toes in the video gaming scene, offering their mobile gaming clip for Xbox controllers starting today. For around $40, the OtterBox Mobile Gaming Clip is easy to install and allows users to connect their Xbox controllers with their iPhones so they can play whatever games they'd like — minus the dirty phone screen. The clip allows users to change the angle of their device with just one hand as well, without worrying about detaching from the clip or breaking their immersion.

This mounting clip is also compatible with Apple MagSafe technology, which means that users don't have to worry about any interference with their controllers. The OtterBox Mobile Gaming Clip is compatible with a variety of controllers, including the Xbox Series X|S Controller, Xbox One Controller, Xbox Elite Wireless Controller Series 2 and OtterBox Easy Grip Controller Shell. The clip can detach and form a tabletop stand, allowing users to cultivate their mobile gaming experience however they'd like, from Apple Arcade titles to your favorite games available through Xbox Game Pass and xCloud Gaming.
