iOS 7 Moga Ace Power game controller leaks online

The Moga Ace Power controller for iOS 7 has leaked online, revealing the gamepad’s wrap-around design.

Offering a first-look at the Moga Ace Power iPhone gamepad, the image comes from notorious tipster @evleaks and shows both the open and closed positions of the upcoming controller.

Apple announced the iOS 7 game controllers at WWDC and one of the company’s mentioned was Moga. We’ve yet to see any official images or prototypes from Moga itself.

However, the leaked images show off the Ace Power iOS controller with an iPhone 5 docked inside.

There were no accompanying details for either of the Moga Ace Power pictures, apart from that it will apparently pack a 1,800mAh battery that will charge your lighting connection iPhone whilst playing.

From what we can see, the Moga controller will be expandable to not only accommodate the iPhone but also to keep the controller compact for portability.

It will have dual analogue sticks spaced similarly to the Xbox 360 controller, a D-Pad and the usual array of coloured face buttons.

From the looks of it the Moga Ace Power controller will also have a pair of shoulder buttons and be quite a chunky design.

Earlier this month, the first official looking images of the Logitech iOS 7 controller leaked online, also revealing a fairly hefty design albeit in a slimmer overall form factor.

Apple also outlined an additional “standalone extended gamepad” that will be used for remote iOS 7 gaming for iPads like the newly announced iPad Air.

It will seemingly connect via Bluetooth or a Wi-Fi Direct connection rather than have any irritating wires to speak of.

At present it is not sure when either the Logitech or Moga iOS controller will be available to purchase, as Apple has gone very quiet on the matter.
