No, that was the version for Android (xbox)

Your comment cannot be blank.

Here is another perspective from someone having both V1 and V2.

I returned Kishi v2.
v2 PROS:
-HUGE upgrade on joysticks. Night and day difference on accuracy and feel.
-Easier than v1 to plop phones in the controller, and you're good to go.
-Couple extra buttons like screenshot and new Nexus app (check cons)

V2 CONS:
-Tactile buttons are ANNOYING, they're LOUD enough to wake up my wife whos sleeping across me in cali king bed. ALL buttons are now tactile
-Bigger footprint because middle part doesn't collapse into itself
-Isn't any more rigid than V1, there is some play between phone and controller when there is any slight twisting motion.
-More new buttons require this new Nexus app to work. Nexus app is bloatware, ad-ridden, crap app. (look at its reviews)
-Memory buttons can only be mapped to existing buttons. Similar to Xbox elite controller, but elite controller button's are back buttons, not top buttons so its not the same functionality or usefulness.
-Unless very thin case, most of the time you'll still need to take off case to use.

I suggest going with V1 unless V2 is sold at the same price as this.
Is this the same one that microsoft just had for $20?

Not sure, but maybe 8BitDo makes one that's compatible. They have several small ones and lots of cool ones, just never tried them with iOS.

While this is ok (I have this version) I think the V2 is better and I'd probably skip this one.

I think the v2 fits a wider variety of phone sizes and works better with a case on. I just performed surgery on my v1 to remove a plastic bumper piece to allow it to work with a case (in addition to removing the rubber inserts). The v2 also has a couple extra features or buttons I think.

I've also heard the V2 is much better from a build quality and rigidity standpoint. I've been eyeing these out and it sounds the the V2 is a much better investment, but it hasn't gone on sale below $100 yet.
