SteelSeries Stratus XL iOS Gaming Controller Now Available

The SteelSeries Stratus XL iOS gaming controller, the successor to the smaller SteelSeries Stratus, is now available for purchase from the Apple Store online. It’s a $69.95 accessory that allows you to control supported iOS games wirelessly using a Bluetooth connection.

SteelSeries says the controller will support any iPad, iPod touch or iPhone running iOS 7 or later, and promises up to 40 hours of battery life while gaming. It’s equipped with four LED indicator lights, a dedicated pairing button and more while offering a full-sized controller experience complete with pressure sensitive buttons and left and right analog triggers.

Oddly, the Apple Store suggests it won’t work with any product older than an iPhone 5 or last year’s iPad Air and the original iPad mini, even though it also says iOS 7 products are supported. Proceed with caution if you haven’t upgraded to a newer device in the past few years, otherwise hit the source to pick one up now.
