Here is my story :
I was using iOS 10 Beta with the C.T.R.LI controller. Sometimes, when I was playing, the device didn't response after a few minuts. To solve that : unpair and pair...
I called madcatz support, they sent me annex C.T.R.LI. I tried it and... same thing. I tried with the iOS 10.0.1 and with iOS 10.1 and same issue...
Did you file an issue with Apple at that time?

For a while I've been meaning to go through my iOS purchases and refund all the games that stopped working because of iOS updates.
To be clear, I'm not suggesting anything morally dubious, in my opinion. While I don't think it's reasonable to expect a game work forever, these OS updates can break a game within days of purchase, should you happen to buy it just before the launch of a new OS version.
At Microsoft they would take hundreds of the most popular applications and test them on the new OS to make sure they all worked. This has hurt Microsoft's software quite a bit, making it bloated with hacks to support legacy code. But the situation on iOS is really bad. Would it hurt them to test out popular triple-A games before launching an OS, like Bioshock and Jet Set Radio? If they cannot keep apps working, then they simply need a compatibility mode that will run the games as if they're running on the old OS. It's messy, but necessary.
Anyway, who is in favour of choosing a day and time to try flood Apple's support with refund requests to bring some attention to this (and our money back)?
There is a public beta out now: http://www.macrumors.com/2016/09/22/app … blic-beta/
May try it in a bit.
EDIT: Downloading now!
EDIT: Playing some Ridge Racer and no problems so far, but we'll see.
I've been trying to find an action (restarting app, toggling Bluetooth, removing batteries) that will get things working again. So far removing batteries and restarting the whole phone have each worked once, but not sure if it was random or not.
Really feel like going on a rant about iOS gaming. We can't have OS updates break games and controllers every year. So many good games gone; Jet Set Radio, Bioshock. Apple needs a "compatibility mode" or something. It's money down the drain.
Various problems with iPhone 7, iOS 10 and the CTRLi.
Often the controller seems connected, but doesn't register inputs right. As in the app thinks a controller is indeed connected, but nothing registers on button press. Or, after working a little, it stops. Resetting multiple times seems the only workaround.
Really hope the Speedy works or gets update, I was about to buy one.
