Moga teases its first Bluetooth compatible iOS 7 controller

It looks like peripheral manufacturer Moga is primed to launch its first wireless iOS 7 controller.

Though the the company released its Moga Ace Power controller only last year, it didn't take advantage of your iPhone or iPad's Bluetooth capabilities. Instead, you had to plug the controller into your unit's Lightning port to get it working.

However, the newly-released teaser image of Moba's latest controller (below) clearly shows a Bluetooth symbol on the controller's chassis, suggesting that this new joypad with be totally cable-free.

As you can see from the image, the pad - which we understand will be called the Moga Rebel - uses the classic Xbox configuration of two asymmetrical thumbsticks, four face buttons, and a d-pad. 

At present, the only wireless iOS 7 controller available is the Steelseries Stratus. We'll have to wait until Moga announces a release date before we can discover whether this new pad is a worthy contender

Well the sticks look better than the previous one - they are no good for FPS which is why I got it, they just don't feel right being the little nubs - you need sticks to give you better resistance for precision movement.

These new versions including the madcatz one do look better!
