I truly dislike that we are lowered to this level of Apple tea leaf reading, however, below we are. If you are among the ton of our readers who’re completely delighted for iOS 7 game controllers, right here’s some excellent proof that they may be coming earlier as opposed to later: Apple is now approving game updates that specifically support controllers. AVP: Evolution is the first one that’s turned up on our radar.

Apple first introduced its MFi ‘Created iPhone’ iOS 7 API throughout June’s Worldwide Developers Conference, recommending that the business was permitting third-party makers to develop devoted iOS games peripherals. Information soon followed that Apple was working with Logitech and MOGA to produce controllers, and a loose fall launch date was shown.

While it’s vague precisely when MFi controllers may strike the market, the imminent public launching of iOS 7 and support for the API suggest a launch might come at whenever, potentially at Apple’s reported October iPad-centric event.

iOS 7 will formally launch on Wednesday, September 18 for the iPhone 4 and later, the iPad 2 and later on, the iPad mini, and the fifth-generation iPod touch.
