Peripheral company SteelSeries announced today its officially supported Stratus Wireless iOS Controller, offering a glimpse at a controller designed for console-style gameplay on mobile titles.

The Stratus features four face buttons, four shoulder buttons, two analog sticks and a traditional D-pad. A grip cover is also included in white or black.

According to SteelSeries, hundreds of titles and franchises, including Grand Theft Auto, already support the controller for iPad or iOS 7 devices. Additionally, up to four players can game on one screen, with LED lights used to indicate whose turn it is. The wireless controller also features up to 10 hours of battery life and recharges via USB in two hours.

The Stratus controller is compatible with iPhone 5s, iPhone 5c, iPhone 5, iPad Mini, iPad Air, iPad 4th Gen, iPod Touch (5th Generation).

The Stratus controller joins the likes of the Moga Ace Power first announced late last year as one of the first controllers supporting Apple's official gamepad driver. You can check out our hands on with the Moga right here, said to suffer "from noticeably shoddy build quality."
