Earlier this month, Twitter sensation @evleaks posted a picture of a game controller for Apple's iPhone and indicated that it was manufactured by Logitech. Now, the same leakster has revealed the name of the device in the post saying that it will be called ‘Powershell.'
The game controller for iOS device is not a mystery since the company briefly elaborated on the gaming support for the new iOS 7. Moreover, guesses are that even others are coming up with the similar products for iOS devices. Just recently a new, battery-powered "Made for iPhone" game controller from Android accessory maker MOGA was also been leaked by the same Twitter user.<blockquote class="twitter-tweet blockquote"><p>Logitech's iPhone game controller is called Powershell.</p>— @evleaks (@evleaks) <a href="https://twitter.com/evleaks/statuses/394327488341372928">October 27, 2013</a></blockquote> <script async src="//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script>
The Powershell gamepad is in fact a case with gaming control buttons where the iPhone can be hooked in to play games. The device features shoulder buttons, a d-pad direction controller on the left, action buttons and a pause key on the right. The back of the controller has an opening which allows the user to take pictures with the iPhone's camera without separating it from the controller. One can also see a 'G' branding at the back.
According to the trademark filing on USPTO, the Logitech Powershell is described as ‘an integrated game control device and battery pack for use with computers and digital electronic devices.' The trademark was filed back in September this year. Moreover, the name Powershell also hints at the presence of a battery pack.
However, there are no other information pertaining to the device at the moment. And even Apple didn't elaborate on the game controller support on their new series of iPhones which was recently launched.
