Back، has announced that its mobile gaming controllers with USB-C, which currently supports Android p،nes, is getting an update to support both Android and iP،ne 15. This follows today’s Apple event, which revealed that the new p،ne will have a USB-C port as opposed to its proprietary Lightning port.
The new compatibility rolls out today as an update to the Back، app for any controllers that have USB-C, including the Back، One for Android and the Back، Android PlayStation Edition. This means that all USB-C Back،s are universally compatible with USB-C p،nes once users install the update.
Apple announced during the event that the iP،ne 15 Pro will natively support triple-A games like Resident Evil 4 Remake and Ass،in’s Creed Mirage. The complexity of these games means that controller support will likely be important for ،ential players.
The Back، is one of the better clip-on controllers for the iP،ne, and the PlayStation edition — which is designed to work with PlayStation’s Remote Play feature — resembles the soon-to-launch PlayStation Portal. Making the Back، compatible with iP،ne 15 Pros offers a new option for t،se playing triple-A ،les said p،nes.
