The best gaming accessories for iPhone Are you an Apple fan looking for some iPhone accessories that’ll take your mobile gaming to the next level? Well, look no further!

iPhone gaming, and mobile gaming more broadly, is absolutely massive right now and so it’s only natural that a number of products and accessories have become available that can help take your mobile gaming to the next level. 

In this article, we’ll be explaining which iPhone-compatible gaming accessories absolutely need to be on your shopping wishlist ASAP. Whether you like to play poker online or prefer to play an immersive battle royale game like PUBG, we’ve got you covered.

Razer Kishi controller

We’ll start with the Razer Kishi, a controller that allows you to control your iPhone games using physical buttons and analog sticks, similar to how you would on a PlayStation or Xbox console. The Kishi also has clickable shoulder buttons and can be used in either handheld mode or attached to an iPhone case for a more traditional gaming experience.

SteelSeries Nimbus+ controller

Next up is the SteelSeries Nimbus+, which is another excellent controller for playing games on your iPhone. It features all of the same button layouts as a standard PlayStation or Xbox controller, making it perfect for those who are used to playing console games. The Nimbus+ also includes a built-in Lightning connector so that you can charge your iPhone while you’re playing games.

Rotor riot controller

If you’re looking for a more compact and portable option, then the Rotor Riot controller is definitely worth considering. It’s small and lightweight and attaches directly to your iPhone and provides physical buttons and analog sticks for gaming on the go. It also features a Lightning connector so that you won’t need to worry about it running out of battery mid-game.

MagSafe battery pack

A power bank is an essential piece of kit for any mobile gamer, as it allows you to keep your iPhone charged while you’re on the go. There are a number of different power banks on the market, but we recommend the official MagSafe battery pack as it’s small and lightweight yet still has enough capacity to extend all iPhone models by at least 40%. It’s also relatively cheap, making it a great option for those on a budget.

Gaming headset

If you’re a series gamer then a good gaming headset is a must-have as it allows you to chat with friends and other players while you’re playing online multiplayer games. We would suggest the AirPods Max as it’s one of the best wireless headsets available right now and has a real premium feel to them, though there are plenty of other options that would do a great job for you too.

External battery case

If you’re looking for a way to keep your iPhone charged while you’re gaming, then invest in an external battery case. These cases are great because they are able to juice up your phone when you need it most without you needing to keep it plugged in with a cable. You can get one directly from Apple by searching for the smart battery case product line and they are beneficial so you should definitely consider picking one up.

Gaming chair

If you want to be able to game for long periods of time without getting uncomfortable, then we recommend getting a gaming chair. These chairs are designed specifically for gamers and they typically come with a number of features that make them perfect for gaming, such as adjustable back support, padded armrests, and headrests.

iPhone case

If you want to protect your iPhone while you’re gaming, then we recommend buying a mobile phone case or cover. These cases and covers typically feature a hard outer shell that will protect your iPhone from drops and other impacts. We think you would do well to go with the Apple Snap-On cases as customers have ranked them as one of the best you can buy at the moment and we’re inclined to agree with them.

In-ear headphones with mic

Last but not least, we have in-ear gaming headphones with a microphone. This is an excellent option for those who want to be able to chat with friends and other players while they’re playing online multiplayer games. We think the Apple AirPods Pro is an excellent choice because they can really help with spatial audio, meaning you can gain an edge over players with standard headphones.
