You can now play iPhone, iPad games with iOS 7 controller support using your PS3 DualShock Controller [Updated]

Apple added native support for game controllers with iOS 7, but the initial crop of controllers are quite expensive, and not that good. If you’ve been longing to use your PS3 controller to play games on your iPhone and iPad, we’ve got some good news for you.

Controllers for All is a new iOS 7 jailbreak tweak that adds support for the DualShock PS3 controller. So all games that utilise the new iOS 7 Game Controller APIs will work with your PS3 controller too.

To start using your PS3 controller, you’ll have to buy Controllers for All from the Cydia Store for $1.99, complete a one-time pairing process with your iOS device and then you’re all set to use it. The pairing instructions can be found in the Settings app under the Controllers for All section, or on this webpage.

The developer says, support for the DualShock PS4 controller would be added soon.

I haven’t been able to test it out as I don’t have a PS3, but let me know how it goes in the comments.

Update:

We took it for a spin, and it works great:
