Apple may have plans to bring an iOS game controller to market, according to AnandTech’s iPad review.Vivek Gowri and Anand Lal Shimpi write that they “know of an internal Apple project to bring a physical controller to market, but whether or not it will ever see the light of day remains to be seen. As smartphones and tablets come close to equaling the performance of current game consoles, I feel like the controller problem must be addressed.”

It’s an interesting prospect, especially when you consider that third-party controllers have been available for iPhones and iPads for some time now.
