The brand new and excellent iPhone 13 Professional lineup has a thicker digicam bump than earlier generations (7.65mm vs. 7.4mm within the iPhone 12 Professional and 12 Professional Max). It sounds negligible, nevertheless it’s sufficient to trigger a couple of small points with accent compatibility. For example, the iPhone 13 Professional apparently doesn’t fit perfectly onto the MagSafe Duo dual charger due to its measurement. And based mostly on my colleague Sam Byford’s first-hand expertise, it additionally doesn’t match all that properly when positioned inside the Spine One, the perfect iOS controller you may presently purchase.

The Spine One has a, for lack of a greater phrase, spine that connects either side of the controller. The iPhone 13 Professional’s digicam bump causes the cellphone to relaxation erratically whereas nested within the Spine One, making it wobble throughout use. That’s not an enormous challenge in itself, except for the truth that the cellphone is technically much less safe within the controller.

However he reported a couple of disconnect points whereas taking part in, too. And if the machine isn’t flat whereas linked through the controller’s Lightning jack, there’s purpose to imagine that it could possibly be placing stress on the iPhone 13 Professional’s Lightning port, which can quantity to a much bigger drawback over time. So, preserve this in thoughts if you have already got one in all these controllers and count on an ideal match.

We’ve reached out to Spine to touch upon this challenge. However this drawback isn’t remoted to simply this firm. Presumably, there are a number of bespoke equipment, in and outdoors of the realm of gaming, made to suit iPhones and Android telephones as much as a sure stage of thickness. However as cellular pictures will get extra superior, the sensors and lenses constructed into telephones will doubtless get bigger, too.
