During Apple’s keynote at the WWDC event on Monday, Apple emphasized on the gaming area suggesting that it’s an area that the company is advancing in and it also announced a new upcoming feature for developers and users called Controller Forwarding. The feature extends the Made-For-iPad/iPhone game controllers compatibility that was announced with the iOS 7 last year.
It allows MFI controllers that attach onto iPhones to work as a controller for iPads and Macs also. So, gamers can now use their iPhones with MFI controllers attached onto their device to play games installed on the iPad and Mac. Developers can also enable the touchscreen of the iPhone, motion control and the buttons on the control as the input.
In addition, gaming stats were also introduced by the company for developers to use in their games. The MFI controller was announced by Apple last year along with the iOS 7 and since then, the company has released a bunch of games with MFI support.
