The Razer Kishi v2 controller, with a more stable design, is available now for Android, but will be available in the fall for the iPhone.

Razer says that the new controller has improved micro-switches beneath the buttons. The improvements to the buttons are paired with a new controller grip for a more optimized gaming experience.

The new Share button allows the player to immediately share clips and screenshots online or with friends. New function buttons allow players to map key macros or to launch the all-new Razer Nexus app.

The Razer Nexus app combines customization of the game controls with connections to streaming services such as YouTube and Facebook. It will also launch installed games with just a single tap.

Weighing only 284 grams, the compact controller charges with a pass-through USB-C connection so the phone may remain charged without interrupting gameplay.

The Razer Kishi v2 controller is now available for Android, and will hit the iPhone in fall 2022. It's priced at $99.99, and can be ordered from the Kishi v2's official site.
