Kanex Announces GoPlay Series of Portable Wireless Game Controllers for iOS

GoPlay SideKick Brings Console-Style Gaming to iPhone, iPad and Apple TV

Brea, CA – January 4, 2016 – Kanex, an innovative leader in connectivity solutions for Apple and iOS devices, announces its GoPlay Series of portable wireless game controllers for iOS at CES 2017. GoPlay SideKick, the first in the series, is a pocket-sized wireless game controller for iPhone, iPad and Apple TV. Certified by Apple, this portable controller works with almost any controller-supported game on the App Store. The rechargeable battery provides 20 hours of gameplay and uses Bluetooth 4.0 to connect to your device. The patent pending, innovative clamshell case protects your controller and serves as a stand to prop up your device and experience console-like gameplay wherever you go.

The new Kanex GoPlay SideKick, along with other exciting innovative Kanex products, will be on display at CES 2017 in booth #8906 in the Las Vegas Convention Center North Hall, near the N4 entrance.

“It’s no secret that mobile gaming has become ever-present in today’s pop culture,” commented Andrew Truong of Kanex. “While mobile gaming has many advantages to console or PC gaming, it falls short when it comes to the level of control one can expect – until now that is. Inspired by traditional console controllers, the GoPlay SideKick brings the console gaming experience to your iOS devices.”

Hundreds of Games to Choose From
With a growing number of high-quality controller-compatible games on the App store, the Kanex GoPlay SideKick is the best gaming accessory for your iPhone, iPad or Apple TV. MFi certified and specifically made for iOS, this little controller makes the most out of your gaming experience. It connects wirelessly to your device and works with any controller-supported game on the App store.

Console-like Gameplay
With a layout inspired by traditional console controllers, Kanex GoPlay offers a more refined level of control than your touchscreen. Featuring pressure-sensitive buttons, dual analog joysticks, trigger buttons and a D-pad, you'll enjoy precision control for your favorite mobile games.

Portable Play
Boasting a handy compact design, Kanex GoPlay SideKick’s innovative, patent pending protective clamshell case has an integrated stand to prop up your iPhone for the best view during game play. When not in use, this portable device effortlessly fits in your pocket or bag. The convenient rechargeable battery uses your iPhone’s Lightning cable to power up. A single charge provides up to 20 hours of gameplay.

Apple Certified
Kanex GoPlay is Apple MFi Certified, which means it’s specifically made for Apple iPhone, iPad and Apple TV so you can expect quality performance and reliability.

Availability & Pricing
The new Kanex GoPlay SideKick will be available February 2017, with an MSRP of $59.95.
