Razer has announced that the Kishi V2 controller is now available for iOS. It first launched in June for Android, but now you can enjoy gaming on your phone with a controller, regardless of your preferred mobile platform.
We were impressed with the Razer Kishi V2 when we reviewed it earlier this year. The D-pad and face buttons are more comfortable to press, while the controller is comfortable to use even for longer gaming sessions.
The controller connects directly to your iPhone’s Lightning port instead of using Bluetooth. This allows for low-latency gameplay, which is especially crucial for anyone involved in the competitive side of gaming. It also means that you can easily charge your phone if the battery gets low.
The Kishi V2 also boasts programmable multi-function buttons located near the triggers. So if you’re playing a game where moving your thumb from the analog stick to the face buttons would be detrimental, you can reshape the inputs to suit your preferences.
In addition to the controller itself, Razer has also released the Razer Nexus app. With it, you can discover controller-compatible games or record and share gameplay. The Kishi V2 has a dedicated button for the app so you can easily access it as needed.
