Amazon Luna On Iphone 12 With ControllerSource: Rebecca Spear / iMore
Amazon Luna is a console-less gaming service that allows players to stream games from a server onto the device of their choosing. Since the latest iPhones and iPads are compatible with the service, you can easily play any of these intensive games on the go as long as you have internet access. Prime members can access a rotation of free games or they can pay a subscription to access additional titles. However, getting the Luna app and controller to work on iOS is a little trickier than you might expect.
In order to play Amazon Luna on your iPhone or iPad, the iOS device must meet these requirements.

Note: Only the games in the first section are free and the rest will require a subscription. There are different subscription tiers that cost different amounts.
If you aren’t using the Luna Controller select Try touch controller. Most games are played horizontally, so prepare to rotate your phone.

All those touch control buttons covering up the screen are rather unsightly and can make it so your fingers obscure something from your view while playing. If you’d like to learn how to connect the official Amazon Luna Controller, continue on to the next section.

Now you’re all ready to play any game on Luna with a controller. The service can be a bit finicky if you let your screen go idle and might disconnect your controller. If that happens, just press the HOME button and toggle between touch controls and the controller to reconnect.
To play Amazon Luna games with the official controller, you first need to use the official app.

As of right now, Amazon Luna is also compatible with the Xbox One and PS4 DualShock controllers on iOS devices. It’s possible that some other third-party controllers could also work with the service, but likely not as well as the official Luna Controller, Xbox One controller, or PS4 controller since the program has specifically been optimized for these gamepads.
With Luna on hand, you can play a number of intensive games right on your iPhone or iPad. All you need is a Prime Membership and access to the internet. I definitely suggest purchasing the official Amazon Luna Controller or using a third-party controller as this will make it a whole lot easier to play these games without obstructing the screen with your hands. You can purchase the official gamepad on its own or with a phone mounting clip.
A comfortable controller
Play Amazon Luna games more comfortably with the official controller. It connects via Bluetooth, Cloud Direct, or USB-C cable to compatible devices. Use it to play on iPhone or iPad.
Added convenience
Make it easier to play your favorite Amazon Luna games with this phone clip and controller combo. That way you can easily hold your phone right in front of your face while using the gamepad.
