Console Quality Controls
Designed in partnership with the team behind the Xbox 360 controller, the Backbone features tactile buttons, responsive triggers, and clickable thumbsticks. The controller's rounded edges are designed to naturally fit in the hand for the most comfortable gaming experience.
Lowest Latency Connection
Simply connects to your iPhone's Lightning port. This direct connection allows for almost no latency when playing games, bringing it closer to a console experience. It’s also extremely low-power, taking less energy than a pair of Lightning-connected headphones.
Pass-Through Charging + 3.5mm Headset Jack
The Backbone Lightning port allows you to charge while you game and the 3.5mm headset jack gives you another way to listen to audio.
Works With Any iPhone
Compatible with the latest iPhones (iOS 15 and up), the Backbone stretches to easily fit the largest or smallest iPhone on the market. *Adapter included for a better experience on iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max
