Gamevice Accepting Pre-Orders for New 'Flex' Gaming Controller for iPhone

Gamevice today announced that it is now accepting pre-orders for its latest gaming controller, the Gamevice Flex, which is designed to accommodate iPhones with cases of all sizes so there is no need to remove the case to play.

The two sides of the Flex pull apart so that an iPhone can be placed in the middle, and then it closes around the sides of the ‌iPhone‌ for a secure fit. There is a built-in Lightning port for the ‌iPhone‌ version that allows for a connection to the Gamevice app.

Gamevice designed the Flex with an Xbox controller layout, so it will be familiar to Xbox fans, plus the company says it has been created with enhanced ergonomics for more comfortable gameplay sessions. There are full-sized joysticks, hall effect triggers, a headphone jack, and a built-in Lightning connector for charging the ‌iPhone‌ though a passthrough USB-C port.

‌iPhone‌ users can play any game that supports gaming controllers with the Gamevice Flex.

The Gamevice Flex is available for pre-order as of today and it will launch on October 25. Preorders come with a free one-month Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscription.

how come they never came out with a clamp style controller that uses Bluetooth rather than direct lightning port connection? Something like the ipega brand but is mfi compliant. i would think it would be a more popular setup.
They do, Gamesir and other companies make them. Problem is, some people don't like the input latency from bluetooth controllers, that and you need to consistently charge them; whereas these controller has no latency and are powerd by the phone itself.

What is even worth playing on iOS that benefits from a full on XBox style controller?
I can play my series x on the go?

It’s great to see this you don’t have to remove a phone case, love backbone but it’s a pain to remove the case every time

I'm loving the competition in this area lately! More options are always great!

There're also some really cool projects using 3d printers and the newly-supported Nintendo Joy-cons, some even connecting to iPads!

Great time to be a nerd. ?

The problem with all of these is you have to take the phone out of the case to use them, it is very inconvenient. I tried some competitor ones.
That's the point with this one - you don't have to.

I've been pretty happy with the first generation Razor Kishi but not having to take my phone case off sounds great.
