iPhone users and mobile game lovers, rejoice for there is a new controller for Xbox cloud gaming in town. The RiotPWR Mobile Controller for iOS has a classic design but is packed with cool features, including a dedicated Xbox button to make the mobile gaming experience as close to console gaming as possible.
The new plug-and-play iOS controller is Lightning-connected so you’ll need no batteries or Bluetooth to use it. On the flip side, you’ll be tethered via the Lightning cable at all times. Worth it? Let’s check it out.
RiotPWR Mobile Controller for iOS Features:
- Two clickable joysticks
- 8-way D-Pad
- Headphone socket
- Comfortable grip
- Wired Lightning connection

On (Xbox) Cloud 9
RiotPWR is one of the leading developers in the mobile gaming hardware industry, best known for its solidly built controllers. Now, the brand has partnered with Xbox to bring us the first Mfi controller with the Xbox button.
The controller features a classic retro design, with clean lines and ergonomic contours, so it’s comfortable enough for hours of gameplay. There are two console size L3/R3 joysticks, a D-pad, and a host of buttons. The device also has a 3.5mm headphone jack if you want to use your headphones for a truly immersive gaming experience, and there is an adjustable and removable phone mount display, too.
RiotPWR Mobile Controller for iOS comes with some pretty handy features. Thanks to the plug-and-play operation and wired Lightning connection, you can say goodbye to annoying lags and batteries. The flip side of this, of course, is that your movements will be limited by the Lightning cable. Still, this is actually a plus in our book because Lightning cables are capable of transferring much more data than Bluetooth so you can expect amazing responsiveness and smoother gameplay.
There is also a Share button, so you can easily make screenshots and share them while you are playing.
The new RiotPWR controller is now available to preorder for $62.99 and it comes with one month’s free Xbox game pass. Its regular price after the release on August 1st will be $69.99.
