Xbox Series X Series S Controller Support Coming To iPhone And iPad

The PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S are out now and, like you, we've been having a fantastic time playing games like Demon's Souls, Spider-Man: Miles Morales, Yakuza: Like A Dragon, Tetris Effect: Connected, and many more.

MacRumors reports that both Apple and Microsoft are now working on bringing support for the gamepad to Apple devices. The last two games are already optimized for Microsoft's new Xbox Series X|S consoles, while the other ones will soon offer free next-gen upgrades to those who purchase the Xbox One versions. Currently, Apple devices support Xbox wireless controller (Model 1708) and Xbox Elite wireless controller series 2.

Apple is also expected to launch support for Sony's PlayStation 5's Dualsense controller as well.

Apple iPhones, iPads may soon get support for Xbox Series X, Series S controller

Given that Microsoft's new Xbox consoles were released not too long ago, it's nice to see that Apple isn't taking their own sweet time to bring support to these new controllers. The support for the controller will arrive via an over-the-air (OTA) update, although, Apple is yet to share more details over its availability.

Although there have been rumours that Apple is developing its own game controller, thus far it's seemed quite satisfied to simply work with Sony and Microsoft to make their full range of controllers work as well as possible with the iPhone, iPad, and Apple TV, and it's carrying this forward into Sony and Microsoft's newest consoles. Notably, Apple doesn't make any mention at all of the PS5 DualSense controllers in its support document. It was recently granted support for the Steam beta client, but Apple hasn't made any announcements about the the haptic feedback and adaptive trigger-centric gamepad.
