iOS 7 is ushering in a new era of gaming for Apple

Did you know that iOS 7 comes with native support for gaming controllers? Yep, instead of niche products like the iCade that only support a few games, Apple has opened the floodgates for full-on mass support for controllers on iOS devices.

Although a few other third party hardware companies have shown off their projects, Logitech, one of the biggest manufacturers on the planet is teasing their own -- providing a sign-up page for more info on their Facebook. While this seems like it's not that big of a deal, mass support from a huge company could really drive developers for more tactile control options on iOS. Heck, I'm actually playing a game right now that has full gamepad support, mere days after the official release of iOS 7.

With Apple TV enhancements and crazy mods like bluetooth work-arounds for Dualshock and Wii-mote support, this could mean great things for people who hate touch controls but want to play iOS exclusives.
