Between Apple Arcade and standalone titles, iPhone gamers have a rich catalog to choose from, yet third-party controllers have left a lot to be desired. The Backbone One goes beyond physical controls, leveraging software to create a well-considered gaming platform. A single tap of its orange button launches the app, which collects all your games in a streamlined interface. Add friends via the app and you'll get notifications when they start to play, and you can also create voice chat parties, take snapshots, and record key moments, all with physical controls. Compatible with iPhones 6S and newer running iOS 13 or later, it also offers a 3.5mm headphone port and a Lightning port for pass-through charging and additional headphone support.
