Apple announces that it is working with Microsoft to add support for the Xbox Series X controller to its products. This will apply to the iPhone as well as the iPad, iPod touch, Apple TV and Mac. This will be available with a future update.
“Microsoft and Apple are working together to make the Xbox Series X controller compatible in a future update”, can we read in an Apple document. The manufacturer lists the currently compatible wireless game controllers. We find the Xbox controllers with Bluetooth (model 1708), Xbox Elite Series, Xbox Adaptive and the DualShock 4 of the PS4. Of course, MFi controllers are also compatible with Apple products.
What about the Sony PS5 DualSense controller? Its support will normally be available with iOS 14.3. This update is currently available in beta for developers and public testers. We don’t yet know if Xbox Series X controller support with Apple products will also be on the agenda with iOS 14.3 or if another version will have to wait.
In the process, we can mention the case of Amazon’s controller for its Luna cloud gaming service. It is also supported with iOS 14.3.
