Razer today announced the launch of its new Kishi V2 gaming controller for iPhone with several improvements over the original controller.

Key new features of the Kishi V2 include a more “ergonomic” design, “console-grade controls” with improved responsiveness for the A/B/X/Y buttons and D-Pad, two programmable multi-function buttons (L4/R4 ) and an “extending bridge” for compatibility with iPhone 6s and newer, including all iPhone SE models.

The controller has an integrated Lightning connector for low-latency direct connection to an iPhone, from which it is powered. An additional Lightning connector at the bottom of the controller allows direct charging of the iPhone itself.

The new Kishi V2 controller is available to order now on Razer’s website, with the price set at $99.99 in the US. There is also a version of the Kishi V2 for Android smartphones which was released in June at the same price.

Another popular iPhone game controller is the Backbone, while iPhones have also supported PS5 DualSense and Xbox Series X/S controllers via Bluetooth since the release of iOS 14.5 last year and have become compatible with Joy- Cons of Nintendo with iOS 16.
