A Mind-Blowing New Gaming Experience for iPhone

Next-level gaming has never been more magical and effortless. Just connect the Backbone to your iPhone, press the Backbone Button to open the app, and instantly start playing games like Call of Duty: Mobile anywhere, in seconds.

Play Anywhere

Cordless, chargeless, and easy to carry. Backbone allows you to take gaming with you anywhere and everywhere, with all your games consolidated into one amazingly portable world.

Play Anyone

Part of what makes gaming fun is the competition. Backbone gives you console-quality controls that will enable you to compete with anyone on your iPhone.

Easy Bragging

Share your stats with an easy screenshot or stream in just one tap. Record, edit, and share straight from Backbone with no extra hardware or software required.

Console Quality Controls

Designed in partnership with the team behind the Xbox 360 controller, the Backbone features tactile buttons, responsive triggers, and clickable thumbsticks. The controller's rounded edges are designed to naturally fit in the hand for the most comfortable gaming experience.

Lowest Latency Connection

Simply connects to your iPhone's Lightning port. This direct connection allows for almost no latency when playing games, bringing it closer to a console experience. It’s also extremely low-power, taking less energy than a pair of Lightning-connected headphones.

Pass-Through Charging + 3.5mm Headset Jack

The Backbone Lightning port allows you to charge while you game and the 3.5mm headset jack gives you another way to listen to audio. 

Works With Any iPhone

Compatible with the latest iPhones (iOS 13 and up), the Backbone stretches to easily fit the largest or smallest iPhone on the market. 

Play Any iOS Games with Controller Support

Choose from hundreds of games like Call of Duty, Minecraft, Asphalt 9: Legends, and more. Backbone works with any game that supports game controllers.

All Your Games In One Place

The Backbone app is an all-in-one launcher that collates all your phone’s games and platforms into one hub, even making recommendations about what to play.

Record, Edit, and Share

The Backbone app assists you in visualizing your most action-packed moments automatically, allowing you to show off your best moments and highlights with ease.

Connect with Friends

Get instantly notified when friends are online and create/join parties to voice chat while you play together.

Play Your Favorite Gaming Platform

Turn your iPhone into a handheld gaming console when you pair the iPhone and Backbone with your preferred gaming service.
