Priced at $40, the Mobile Gaming Clip attaches to an Xbox controller using a fitted clip and holds an ‌iPhone‌ with the magnetic mount. It can be used when playing an ‌iPhone‌ game with an Xbox controller, and OtterBox says the magnetic mount and clip design will not interfere with Xbox controller functionality.

The Mobile Gaming Clip allows for one-handed angle and tilt adjustment for a more comfortable gaming experience, and according to OtterBox, the design offers optimal controller balance to cut down on wrist stress. The magnetic mount offers "strong magnetic alignment and attachment" to keep the ‌iPhone‌ in place during gameplay.

The clip is able to detach from the base to serve as a table top stand, and when not in use, it folds flat for easier storage and transportation.

The Mobile Gaming Clip for MagSafe can be purchased from the OtterBox website for $39.95. It is compatible with the Xbox Series X/S Controller, the Xbox One Controller, and the Xbox Elite Wireless Controller Series 2.

I have a gaming clip for my iPhone 12 and Xbox controller - these do look great in all the media pics however during actual gameplay, they just make the controller top heavy and not very comfortable to use.

Used it once - never again.....
I'd rather see one like the razor kishi, but using magnets instead of the retractable holders. They could probably make it fairly thin, and have it fold to a smaller size for carrying it.

Hey now, you're getting Otterbox quality in that there clip! Impervious to the kinds of damage typically associated with non-Otterbox Xbox controller Magsafe clips! ?
