This makes me wonder, what's the best third party controller for an iPhone? Especially one that will likely not be obsolete in a few years? I've never done the third party controller thing, but I might for something like this.
DS4 (PS4) or Dual Sense (PS5) are good choices, they work across iOS / Android / Mac / Windows (and obviously PlayStation), they don't require disposable batteries like the Xbox controller does so micro-usb / usb c cable suffices to charge, and they're pretty good quality.

The Dual Sense one is fairly new so expect it to stay current for at least 5 years if not more.

You can buy an inexpensive mount to dock your iPhone to the gamepad if you so wish:
