Backbone 3D-printed solution for iPhone 13 pro camera bump issue. Backbone labs, one of the famous companies to create an iPhone gaming controller recently has acknowledged the issues with the use of its iPhone gaming controller with the new iPhone 13 and 13 pro max.
Backbone 3D-Printed Solution for iPhone 13 Pro Camera Bump Issue
As noticed already, the iPhone 13’s thicker bump means that the phone does not seamlessly sit into the Backbone One Controller. The issue is that it is either sticking out on one side or it’s causing the bridge on the back buckle slightly. However not being great, does not mean that it is not unusable.
A representative of backbone wrote in an official post on Reddit: “We spent tremendous amount of time meticulously crating every surface of backbone one (both bits and atoms) and even designing universal support for the iPhones available when it was released. As a result, we are disappointed in the situation at hand. Several members on the team even upgraded to 13 pro max for better gaming experience, and while it may be acceptable for some users, it’s not as good as we’d like it to be.”
Backbone’s Solution to the Problem
The iPhone gaming Console Company has therefore designed an adapter to help improve the user experience with the iPhone 13 pro and 13 pro max to address the issue. The company however unfortunately reports that due to supply constraints and Covid 19 at the moment will not be able to mass-produce them.
With that being said, the adapter design will be released as an open-source 3D printable file. But however, if you do not have access to a 3D printer, the company says they will do their best to send adapters to users who can only contact the company’s support team.
When Will The 3D Printable File Be Ready?
In a matter of days, the printable files will be posted online. And until then, the company will keep users updated via its social and available channels.
