Apple has filed a patent for a gamepad.

The patent shows schematics of a wireless dual-shock style controller that looks like it will interact with iPhones, iPods and Apple TV.

The Apple TV device can already play iOS games using airplay, but the lack of a controller has meant limited support for the system.

iPad compatibility, although not shown in the patent application, is also likely.

Apple visionary, the late Steve Jobs, was famously disinterested video games.
