MOGA’s Ace Power, the world’s first iOS 7 compatible game controller, was only released in November, but the company is already teasing its follow-up.
The first released image clearly shows a Bluetooth button, suggesting that the new gamepad may be a wireless device — unlike its MOGA Ace Power predecessor which requires a Lightning connection.
This also might mean that it will work on all iOS 7 devices including the iPad, in contrast to the Ace Power which only supported the iPhone 5 and later, as well as fifth-generation iPods.
Although there’s no price yet released for the as-yet-unnamed gamepad, the Ace Power currently retails for $79.99 — down from its original price of $99.99. A truly Bluetooth-enabled device would likely cost at least this much, if not more.
(Of course, if you’re happier to jailbreak your iOS device than you are to shell out a hundred bucks for a controller, you could always download this tweak which lets you use PS3 gamepads for free.)
