A recent report by Pocketgamer claimed that the Cupertino giant was working on a gamepad that was especially developed for iOS devices.

The gamepad was expected to be officially announced in April.

However, Jim Dalrymple of The Loop, reputed for his correct Apple predictions, has refuted the claims.

Dalrymple made no detailed statements but a simple “nope” can only say so much.

“Long rumoured – and hoped for – GDC 2013 has finally provided confirmation that Apple will release its own dedicated game controller.”
