Danish gaming peripheral manufacturer SteelSeries has just announced the Nimbus+, a wireless Bluetooth gaming controller that works on iOS, macOS and tvOS.

The successor to the original Nimbus launched four years ago, the new MFi-certified Nimbus+ packs several significant upgrades. For one, the rechargeable battery (still charges over a Lightning connection) now offers 50 hours of playtime on a single charge.

SteelSeries is also touting clickable L3/R3 joystick buttons for console-like performance and additional input options, as well as dedicated menu and option buttons for easy navigation.

Additionally, the package comes with an iPhone mount so you can easily use it with the handset while on the go. An obvious accessory for Apple Arcade fans, the controller is said to work with ‘thousands of games on your iPhone, iPad, iPod, Apple TV or Mac’.

You can now order the SteelSeries Nimbus+ on the Apple Store for S$124, though shipping only starts Jun 5 as of this writing.
