To celebrate Apple’s 40th Anniversary, 8Bitdo has designed a Bluetooth controller using a similar style to Apple’s original logo, along with a receiver that connects to an Apple II.

This allows you to play games on an Apple II wirelessly, and finally answer the question of whether or not those games would have been more fun with a wireless controller instead of a keyboard.

As the AP40 transmits via Bluetooth, it can be used to control smartphone games, and even includes a stand modeled after an Apple II.

The AP40 works just like the rest of 8bitdo’s lineup — meaning it’s compatible with Windows, Mac, iOS, Android, and Raspberry Pi running Recallbox.

It can also interface with NES and SNES systems via the company’s other adapters, or you can use the Apple II Bluetooth adapter with newer game controllers as well!
