The first iOS 7 gamepad is the Moga Ace Power

The best thing about iOS 7 for gamers is that it finally offers a universal standard for game controllers. The first gamepad to support that new standard is the Moga Ace Power, which comes from the same guys who made the well-received Moga Pro controller for Android phones.

The form factor of the Ace Power is quite cool – your iPhone sits inside the controller, with controls on either side of the screen. You get a pair of thumbsticks, four face buttons, a D-pad and a pair of triggers, so console-style gaming is within your grasp!

I think that the Moga Ace Power is essential for iOS 7 gamers: you get the tactile feedback and comfortable style of a true controller and even more battery life for your phone. If you’re not convinced, read on!

Improved controls

Touch-screen gaming has come a long way, but everyone agrees that using a physical controller just feels better. Buttons, thumbsticks and triggers give tactile feedback that just isn’t possible when you’re tapping on glass, and you’re able to be a lot more accurate as well. Whether you’re racing supercars, jumping from platform to platform or gunning down zombies, you’ll be able to do with comfort and precision using the Moga Ace Power.

More battery life

The second big feature of the Moga Ace Power is its integrated battery pack. At 1800 mAh, you’ll be able to more than double your iPhone’s battery life and keep gaming for longer. That’s great, because with the Ace Power you’re definitely going to be spending more time gaming!

An ergonomic, portable experience

The Ace Power has a contoured design with a tactile grip, so you can keep gaming comfortably for as long as you like. The extending design that allows the iPhone to sit inside the controller also keeps the Ace Power small when it’s out of use. In fact, it’s compact and portable enough to fit in your pocket, making it convenient to bring with you whenever you want to try gaming on the go.


The Moga Ace Power controller is brilliant for gamers on iOS, and should definitely be worth a look! It’s compatible with the iPhone 5S, iPhone 5 and iPod Touch 5G, so if you’ve got any of those then check out the product page below:
