The controller of your desires may have just arrived for Apple Arcade aficionados

It’s worth checking out PowerA’s new iPhone controller if you’re an Apple Arcade member.

Apple Arcade games seem to be well-served by the PowerA MOGA XP5-i Plus iPhone controller. You can get it from both Amazon and via PowerA’s own shop for $79.99 (around £66.99 / $114.99.99). However, there has been no word on availability or cost for other locations.

MOGA XP5-i Plus has what makes it so appealing? As far as features go, it’s got a built-in 3,000mAh battery. The controller can charge your phone while linked to it, ensuring that you can play for extended periods of time.

The controller’s button mapping is also adjustable, enabling you to rearrange inputs to suit your requirements. Apple Arcade games like PUBG Mobile and Apex Legends, as well as famous mobile titles like Fortnite, are sure to benefit from this new functionality.

Making use of one’s might

All of us have been there. A JRPG such as Fantasian’s last boss battle or PUBG Mobile’s final circle has just been achieved, but your phone’s battery has other plans. With the MOGA XP5-i Plus’s built-in power bank, this should be a thing of the past.

This is the PowerA controller’s finest achievement, particularly for hardcore Apple Arcade gamers, in my opinion. There have been other mobile controllers with built-in power banks, such PowerA’s MOGA XP5-X Plus, but this newest generation is a good choice for iOS users who want to play games while on the road.

And that gets me to the MOGA XP5-i Plus’s most serious flaw. You can’t use it on an Android phone or tablet since it’s optimised for iOS devices like the iPhone, iPad, and Apple TV 4K.

Sadly, PowerA has a long history of producing high-quality mobile controllers for a wide range of platforms, so this is a real tragedy. All the greatest Android phones can be used with the MOGA XP5-X Plus.

PowerA’s new controller is still worth keeping an eye on if you possess an iOS smartphone. Apple Arcade’s game selection, which includes numerous console-quality games that are a step beyond those on Apple’s App Store, is particularly relevant.
