      The best MFi controller yet but...

      This is an excellent controller to use, very comfortable with well laid out buttons and properly shaped triggers. The convenience of charging via Lightning cabl This is an excellent controller to use, very comfortable with well laid out buttons and properly shaped triggers. The convenience of charging via Lightning cable is also fantastic, although the battery life is so long it rarely needs a charge. When switched on it will automatically connect to the last device it was paired with but it can also be easily connected to another device if you want to switch from playing on the iPad to the Apple TV. However, there is a significant fly in the ointment. After only two months one of the buttons has stopped working and Apple will not replace it. Instead they want me to RMA it via SteelSeries who are in Denmark. SteelSeries in turn won't send a replacement but instead give me credit to buy a new one from their website. This is all a huge hassle and has left me with a seriously bad impression of Apple's support. Only get one of these if you're willing to jump through many hoops and be without the controller for weeks if it breaks.

      Sticky joystick

      I am now on my second Nimbus from Apple as I took my first one back on the 12th December 2015, it feels nice to hold and does not feel cheap but on using it on I am now on my second Nimbus from Apple as I took my first one back on the 12th December 2015, it feels nice to hold and does not feel cheap but on using it on the Apple TV I have found that the left hand joystick keeps sticking and not returning to the neutral position. It was replaced with a new one but that has also gone the same way as the first on so I will return that one as well for yet again another. They have only had light use.

      Pros: Nice build quality. Cons: - No Charge Cable - Not configurable - Buttons don't work Purchased for war robots but just not useable. Bottom line: Pros: Nice build quality. Cons: - No Charge Cable - Not configurable - Buttons don't work Purchased for war robots but just not useable. Bottom line: Look elsewhere.
