Spine Labs has acknowledged the difficulty that hampers the usage of its excellent iPhone gaming controller with the brand new iPhone 13 Professional and 13 Professional Max. As we noticed last week, the iPhone 13 Professional’s thicker digicam bump means the telephone doesn’t sit neatly within the Spine One controller, both protruding on one aspect or inflicting the bridge on the again to barely buckle. It’s not unusable, however it’s not nice.
“We spent an amazing period of time meticulously crafting each floor of Spine One (each bits and atoms) and even designing common assist for the iPhones accessible when it was launched,” a Spine consultant wrote in an official post on Reddit. “Consequently, we’re upset within the scenario at hand. A number of of us on the workforce even upgraded to 13 Professional Max for a greater gaming expertise, and whereas the match could also be acceptable for some customers, it’s not so good as we’d prefer it to be.”
To deal with this, Spine has designed an adapter that’s supposed to enhance the expertise with the iPhone 13 Professional and 13 Professional Max. Sadly, the corporate says it isn’t in a position to mass-produce them immediately due to provide constraints and COVID-19, so the adapter design shall be launched as an open-source 3D printable file. When you don’t have entry to a 3D printer, Spine says “we’ll do our greatest” to ship an adapter to customers who contact the corporate’s assist workforce.
The printable recordsdata needs to be posted on-line “in a matter of days;” we’ll let you know the way effectively the answer works once we can.
