AP40 is a Bluetooth controller inspired by Apple’s retro logo. It’s compatible with all modern devices, and comes with a Retro Receiver line which allows the retro controller to be used on systems such as the NES, SNES, and Apple IIc. It is easy to pair with all devices that are Bluetooth enabled. The controller comes with a stand modeled after the original Apple II computer to elegantly hold your controller, an iPhone, or a tablet at the perfect angle for gaming.
As part of the anniversary of the Apple I, they designed the Retro Receiver to be able to play Apple IIc games using your wireless 8Bitdo AP40 controller. The Retro Receiver is also compatible with many modern controllers.
When combined, the retro controller and receiver are the perfect tools for arcade gaming, whether it be retro games on the Apple IIc or mobile games on your phone or tablet. For fans of Apple IIc and a bygone era of early gaming, this blast from the past controller is a perfect way to refresh your collection.
