Apple’s iPad Pro lets iOS users get serious work done, and it allows artists to draw using the impressive Pencil. But it also provides gamers with the biggest iOS device screen ever. As such, early reviews of the iPad Pro celebrated the device as a portable gaming machine, but also recommended the use of an MFi (Made for iPhone) game controller, too.
If you’re a gamer with an iPad Pro, then, MFi-compatible apps are what you should on the lookout for. Fortunately, AfterPad can help. The site, as MacStories’ Federico Viticci explains, offers gamers an online catalog detailing a list of MFi-compatible games. These are grouped by the date of release, or by the editor’s choice of the best controller-compatible applications available on the App Store. Thanks to the iPad Pro, gaming using virtual, on-screen controls (much like drawing with your finger) seems to have become a thing of the past.
The catalog is a page you should bookmark. Though I don’t own an iPad Pro yet, I’m nevertheless going to be earmarking iOS apps to play on the big-screen device once the 12-inch tablet arrives. Having the option of connecting a Bluetooth controller (like SteelSeries’ Stratus, for instance) will be something I’m looking for my iPad Pro games to offer.
So far, Apple has suffered a few troubles with its rollout of the iPad Pro. First, orders of both the Pencil and Smart Keyboard (two must-have accessories for the tablet) have been out of stock both online and in many Apple Stores. The good news, though, is that Pencils are in the process of reaching customers who placed early orders online.
Then, we heard from owners of the device that many iPad Pros were going unresponsive after the tablet was charged for long periods. Apple is in the process of investigating this.
