Update 10-30-15
Just added a picture of it working on the 4th generation Apple TV.
*****This controller works flawlessly with the new Apple TV 4 generation. It paired with the apple TV in just a few seconds in the Bluetooth setup tab for the Apple TV. I actually think I like navigating the Apple TV with the Controller better in most cases than the new Apple TV touch remote. I am going to try the SteelSeries Nimbus controller too, to try out, but I think I may be getting more of the Mad Catz C.T.R.L.i controllers because of the button layout is just like the Xbox One and because it feels solid in my hands. The Nimbus has both thumb sticks at the bottom of the controller.
***** Works fantastic with my iPhone 6s Plus

---Original Review---
Everything works fantastic with one exception. You have to download the app on your iPhone or iPad before you par it. It did take several attempts to par it before it took but has worked fantastic sense. All of the buttons and sticks work smooth. Fits my iPhone 6+ with a OtterBox Commuter case just perfectly. Just what I was looking for. Also, my nephew purchased the same exact Mad Catz CTRLi controller and has had the same experiences as I have had.

I got this control for my iPhone 6 to play GTA SA, it paired with without a problem. Feels the same size as the Xbox controller.

An outstanding extended MFI controller that's the same size and nearly the same weight as a 360 controller. The quality is also pretty close at a reasonable price. A link to my video review can be found in the comment to this review.

It has strengths, and it has weaknesses; unfortunately, for me, the latter might be too substantial.
On the positive side...
1. The feel is quite similar to the Xbox 360 controller; since that's the epitome of game controllers for me (possibly a tie with the Nintendo Gamecube's wired one), I liked holding it to play games on my iPad. The colors of the letters are switched from the Xbox one (but that is likely to protect against any patent lawsuits).
2. A lot of games work with it (the ones on the Featured page of its app are a fraction of the ones that are reported to work), but not all let you choose the command layout--not a MadCatz issue, but you should be aware that the controller isn't meant to override anything the app tells it.

On the negative side...
3. Battery life. It's very small, most likely because the engineers made a very poor decision: it operates on AAA batteries, not AA ones. Using an alkaline pair, the Battery Level reading via the CTRLi iOS app dropped 12 percent over the span of 80 minutes, only 30-35 of which were spent playing games. The rechargeable batteries I use in all my other products (wifi keyboards, wireless headphones) last 1-2 20-30 minute sessions at most before requiring a new charge session. There's a reason all the console controllers use AA batteries: they contain 2.5-3 as much current capacity.
4. There's no OFF button. The controller puts itself to sleep... *30 minutes* after it was last used. It's not as much a factory in the battery life as the AAA problems, but still significant, I would imagine. In their minimalistic replies, customer/technical support said that "this may change in future firmware updates."

Bought this for a friend. He has an iPhone 5s with iOs 8. After pairing the two devices via bluetooth, it worked flawlessly on Monster Hunter (after learning the controls of course). It was hilarious when we finally got the button combos right.

The controller is built like an Xbox 360 controller without the ability to click down on the joysticks. The mount comes off easily by taking off the mounting thumbscrew. As far as things go, I believe this will work for all iPhone up to date (a little held back about the iPhone 6 though, but if you compare the width of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 5 with minimum discrepancies, it should work for the iPhone albeit a little snug). The mount cannot be adjusted. Nice touch that MadCatz included two AAA batteries which this thing runs off of so we could pop this in on our hiking trip.

Other than that, the packaging is well done, very beautifully in fact. Comes with stickers but I don't know what we'd do with those. Further instructions an compatibility on certain games and their respective controls can be found on MadCatz's website.

I bought this controller for use with both my iPhone 6 and iPad Air. I decided on this controller because I wanted one that had a clip to hold the iPhone and one that had good ratings according to Afterpad.com.

The controller is well-built and feels nearly the same as an Xbox 360 controller. Like other reviewers have likely mentioned, the d-pad is not good at all. I didn't think this would matter to me much, but it does. The clip for the iPhone works fine, though it would be nice if it could swivel to change the angle of the device. The angle that the clip uses is not a natural angle for my wrists, so they become uncomfortable after prolonged use. The bluetooth works fine though it can be a bit finicky.

The reasons that I chose this controller are that it has L and R triggers, and has the same button arrangement as the Xbox 360 controller. If I hadn't purchased this controller, I would have gotten the Horipad, which has a great d-pad apparently, though it doesn't include a clip to hold the iPhone nor does it have L and R tiggers, only L and R buttons. In retrospect, I should have purchased the Horipad since I don't really play enough FPS games to justify the need for triggers, and my games that use the d-pad are significantly less fun on a controller with a terrible d-pad such as this one. The Horipad doesn't have a clip, though, so I guess that's a big plus for this controller.

Overall, if you want a clip or triggers, this is the only controller you should consider. If you don't care about those, or if you play a lot of games that use the d-pad, skip this one, as the d-pad is really bad.
