50% Off Backbone One Controller (Lightning)

Backbone One Lightning (white)

Available for purchase today, Backbone One has a Lightning connector for iPhone 14 and earlier models. It’s a white first-generation model with PlayStation-style buttons. Backbone One essentially turns your iPhone into a gamepad-style gaming device like a Steam Deck, Nintendo Switch, or ASUS ROG Ally. Just insert your phone into the controller and you’re ready to go. Instead of using your phone’s touchscreen, you can now employ physical controls, including two joysticks, a D-pad, and programmable buttons. This makes the gameplay more intuitive, precise and overall more enjoyable.

Backbone One is compatible with most games from Apple Arcade, Xbox Cloud, PlayStation Remote Play and Steam Remote Play, as well as any mobile game that already supports other standalone controllers. NO everyone the game is compatible though, so if you have a specific game you play religiously, you’ll need to make sure it supports Backbone One.
