Razer today announced a new dual-sided game controller that attaches to the top and bottom of an iPhone.

Created in partnership with Gamevice, the controller plugs into the Lightning connector, allowing it to be powered by the iPhone rather than a battery. The controller itself has a built-in Lightning connector for pass-through charging of the iPhone. The direct connection also allows for ultra-low latency.

Building on the compact design of its Junglecat controller for Android, Razer's new Kishi controller features a directional pad, two thumbsticks, A-B-X-Y buttons, and shoulder bumpers. The controller is certified by Apple.

This looks really cool but I’m guessing it won’t fit the 11 Pro Max.
It will

Reminds me of the Sega Game Gear but with a better screen and more buttons.

There's only one thing that matters and that's do the thumbsticks click in!?! The gamevice controllers are great but without clickable thumbsticks using them to play xbox and playstaion games via cloud streaming is terrible. They need the same industry standard features as console controllers to be worth buying.
