The newest iOS app from Nintendo will debut later this month. Instead of bringing another game to the iPhone though, Nintendo plans to make a new app dedicated to connecting owners of the new Switch console.
Nintendo’s new Switch console is turning the gaming world on its head, but it could soon face some fresh the Raspberry Pi.
YouTuber Sudo Mod recently revealed his latest creation that stuffs a Raspberry Pi, LCD and controller into a tiny Altoids tin. The finished product looks like something you’d actually want to game on and it’s even more convenient to carry around than an iPhone.
Nintendo Switch owners may soon be able to install third-party applications on the new gaming console thanks to an old Apple security flaw.

Nintendo might have other priorities with its new Switch console right around the corner, but it won’t be losing its focus on Android and iOS. The Japanese firm today confirmed that it plans to release two to three mobile games every year.
Animal Crossing, another Nintendo game bound for iOS, is being delayed until April at the earliest, according to the company’s most recent financial statement. Originally it was set to arrive on iOS by the end of March.
Gamers shouldn’t be too upset, however, as they’ll have Nintendo’s Fire Emblem Heroes — announced at the same time as Animal Crossing, but launching over the next few days — to play instead.
If you like the idea of the new Nintendo Switch but you do all your gaming on iOS, the latest controllers from Gamevice are going to be right up your alley.
Like Nintendo’s latest console, they slap physical buttons and analog sticks onto the sides of your iPhone and iPad. They’re also powered by your iOS device so there’s no need to charge a battery, and they bring the headphone jack back to your iPhone 7.
