If you've bought one of these from either Amazon or Ebay and it doesn't work according to the instructions or description in the listing, request a refund. The most recent Apple iOS updates render them useless unfortunately, they worked at some point, but not now. Vendors likely know this and still try and flog them. Tip: don't let them string you along, get either Amazon or Ebay involved, as for all intents and purposes the item sold is defective. It was only £25, but I managed to get a refund by ringing up Ebay.

Ask questions before you buy and make sure it's compatible with your current iOS at least.

It's not very sporting of Apple either as I suspect elements in certain updates are intentionally devised to lure you into buying their more expensive Apple approved Bluetooth controllers. (I have other Bluetooth devices dating years back that still work over several iPhones however) That seems like an unfair business practice to me, perhaps legally dubious. It would be like Apple walking into your home snapping your Bluetooth device in half and saying "Here buy ours instead, because that's your only choice!" This is how Apple officially excuse themselves - "Depending on the Bluetooth accessory, you may experience slight variations in profile functionality. These variations are governed by the accessory manufacturer, not the iOS device."

Shifty gits.

As iOS was updated to version 9.2, there were some software-wise changes on how gaming controllers interact with the iOS device. The change rendered a big amount of controllers useless. iPega 9023 is one of them.

Simply put: No, it doesn't work with your phone. Yes, there might be something you could do, but if you have to ask what it is, it's probably too difficult.

Also no, I won't help you with your 30-buck gamepad by email. It's not 1997 anymore.

"Not 1997?" What does that even mean?

You're bit of an obnoxious arsehole, aren't you?

Dear Man Beadle: If answering that question solves your 9023-related problem, then yes, I am an obnoxious and a quite hairy arsehole. Also, Boyd de Steur: It's not just because of what Apple decides. Blaim game developers and controller manufacturers for not agreeing on a single specification or a standard for how gaming controllers should function.

Sell the controller to someone who owns an Android phone, or use it with a W10 tablet.

I'm reasonably tech-savvy myself and I'm fully aware of how the different BT pairing and communication standards work. I'm sorry but there's no actual/functional reason -sorry, I meant poor excuse- for Apple removing from the OS' coding a number of standard comm protocols that are known to be able to co-exist with each other without conflict as long as they're used independently at a time - which is extremely easy to do, specially if you grant control over it to the user, but that's something that Apple loathes to do, as we all know.

About the 1997 comment, I'm left wondering if that's some kind of obscure IRC reference of sorts that only those privy to it would get, but on top of that the general tone of your message came across as anything but friendly. I won't go as far as calling names as someone else did, but I can't help wandering why are you spending time in a site like this, giving non-answers to people who's only looking for help, because that's something that you definitely didn't provide up there.
