iOS gaming has come a long way since the Texas Hold'em, the first ever iPhone game, landed on the App Store in 2008. With the advent of remote play for the likes of the PS5 and Xbox Series X, the iPhone is arguably a gaming powerhouse. And with the addition of Sony's brand new iOS controller, it could now rival that other wildly popular console, the Nintendo Switch.

Yep, Sony has just announced its own officially licenced version of the excellent Backbone One controller for iOS, complete with the iconic white-and-black (or as I call it, reverse-Oreo) PS5 colour scheme. Sony has also revealed the new pro controller, the DualSense Edge, taking PS5 into a new elite gaming market.
