Microsoft has this week announced that it is expanding its ‘Designed for Xbox’ license to mobile accessories on iOS, with more products on the way.
In a release the company stated:
Today we’re announcing the expansion of our Designed for Xbox mobile gaming accessories to iOS devices. And with Xbox Cloud Gaming (Beta) becoming available today to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate members on Windows 10 PCs and Apple phones and tablets via web browsers, we’re making it easier to play the deepest, most immersive games whenever and wherever you choose.
With launch products from leading mobile accessories partners and more on the way, we can’t wait to see where fans will take their gaming next.
Devices already available with the new ‘Designed for Xbox’ tag include the Xbox Backbone one, which works on all iPhone models running iOS 13 or later, featuring buttons to capture gameplay and share it through the Backbone app.
There’s also the Razer Kishi, which comes recommended by iMore as one of the best controllers going for Xbox Cloud gaming on iOS.

If you prefer to game with a regular Xbox controller, Designed for Xbox also includes Otterbox’s brand new Power Swap Controller Batteries, which let you change your battery pack whilst playing without disconnecting your controller.
Microsoft confirmed yesterday that after a period of beta testing Xbox Cloud Gaming is now available to all users on iPhone and iPad.
