After Apple announced support for an upcoming "Made for iPhone" (MFi) program supporting certified game controllers using new APIs in iOS 7, a report indicated that Logitech and MOGA were among the first wave of companies to be working closely with Apple on such accessories.

Logitech's controller has been seen several times already, and now a photo of MOGA's offering has been leaked on Twitter by @evleaks. Apparently called the "MOGA Ace Power", the enclosure controller reportedly includes an integrated 1800 mAh battery and the photo reveals not only the traditional D-pad on the left front and buttons on the right front and shoulders of the device, but also dual thumbsticks on the left and right front.

A second photo shows the controller in closed mode when the iPhone has been removed.

Apple has yet to officially announce the launch of its MFi program for game controllers, but it is clear that third-party manufacturers are gearing up to launch their products. Companies such as ClamCase and Logitech have been teasing their offerings, suggesting that a launch may be rather close, but launch details for the devices have yet to be revealed.

Long Overdue

Looking forward to these devices being shipped. They are long overdue, should have been out two/three years ago.

Not the prettiest, but a good personality?

I'm not a huge fan of the style of it, but functionality-wise it looks like just what the doctor ordered.

Can't wait for the day to see actual gamepads.. will actually be able to play driving and fps games on the iphone for once! Just hope it will accommodate the iPhone 6 and its larger screen or its a no buy!

I like that it can run in both docked and iPhone-less modes. Means it might be adaptable for Apple TV at some point as well.

What about the iPhone's speakers? :confused:

It appears as though they have holes on the front of the controller that connect to both the speakers and the microphones. They are kind of covered up by the '@evleaks' watermark in the top photo, but you can see them more clearly in the photo of it closed .

Looks horrible, I still think the way to go is with a bluetooth controller and a base for the device.

Will wait for apple to make a larger phone, as well as this device to get larger. Ipad version would be awesome!

Thank you for your confirmation that the iPhone 6 will have a larger screen, I was worried that I would have to find out through months of lurking in forums. Not only did you give me knowledge, you gave me, you gave me freedom.
