If you've been dying to get your hands on a quality gaming controller for your iOS device, you're finally in luck. Today Jan. 6, 2014 SteelSeries announced that they're releasing the SteelSeries Stratus Wireless Gaming Controller, which runs on iOS 7 devices and on HD TVs via AppleTV from supported games. The SteelSeries Stratus Controller is the first Bluetooth controller for iOS devices, and the product boasts 10+ hours of battery-life for intense and immersive gaming.

According to a prepared statement we received from the CEO of SteelSeries Bruce Hawver:

The Stratus Wireless Controller, the first wireless gamepad controller ever to be supported in iOS 7, forever alters the mobile gaming landscape. With Stratus, gamers have easy and direct access to a growing roster of great games on iPad that were intended for an immersive, controller-enabled experience. We’re incredibly excited to be the first gaming peripherals company to develop a standalone controller for iOS devices and are thrilled to see an abundance of high quality game titles rolling out from publishers everyday.

Up to four of the console-style controllers can be paired together and also feature:

  • A pressure-sensitive directional pad (D-pad).
  • 4 pressure-sensitive action buttons.
  • 4 pressure-sensitive shoulder buttons.
  • Dual analog sticks.
  • Dedicated pairing button to connect to iOS devices via Bluetooth.
  • On/off switch to save on power.
  • USB connection cable.

The SteelSeries Stratus Controller is currently available on preorder for $99.99.
