I can't imagine this would be all that difficult to throw up on Cydia since the limitations would effectively be lifted at that point until you can make a compliant App store tool.

No. That's a political game you don't want to play with Apple.
Xbox One / PC
XIM Apex / Logitech G Pro Keyboard / Logitech G900

As an OS X and iOS user (converted after 20 years of Doze), a native iOS or Mac app would be nice and all, but not if Apple gets a slice of OB's pie.

We're all pretty tech-savvy here - the average nub is not going to invest the time to remap their controller keys, let alone mess with ballistics curves and the like. Your target market is PC gamers who also play on or have migrated to console and want to use their m/kb...not the dumbest demographic on the block. We're tweakers and tinkerers, not plug and play.

With that in mind, do we really, absolutely need an iOS app?  We can bypass the Apple walled-garden by using Parallels and VMWare Fusion to run the Xim PC app, or simply drop a few bucks on a cheap and nasty Android phone. I wouldn't go so far as to consider Cydia - I'm not about to Jailbreak my iDevices to support a single app.

Don't cut Apple into the revenue stream when the cost outweighs the benefits. Realistically, how many iOS / Mac users are core gamers, let alone Ximmers? And again, we're talking tech-savvy people here to even consider going down the m/kb path for console gaming. If we can do that, we can setup a VM.

I will happily pay more for a XIM with a MFi chip in it. Happily.

I've already bought a Xim4. I'm not going to buy a Xim4 MFI edition. I will buy a Xim5 with a MFI chip, but that doesn't solve the problem in the interim for existing users.

It would likely be cheaper too.

Wifi with a Management page for doing configs, kind of a like a wireless router would not be too bad.  Use a webapp and there would not be too much difference in a native app I believe.  ;D

Any updates on MFi certification?  I rarely even use my XIM4 anymore because setting it up for new games is such a pain.  :(
