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.
