It’s official. Apple and Microsoft are working together to bring compatibility for the Xbox Series X controller. As per a report by The Verge, both tech giants are creating new Xbox Series X and Series S controllers that will work with iOS and iPadOS. Earlier, Apple and Microsoft had worked together to add support for Xbox Elite 2 controller and Xbox Adaptive Controller to iOS 14. But not to forget it did take some time for this to happen and we can only expect that Apple doesn’t take another year to roll out support this time.
Another report by AppleInsider hinted at the possibility that Apple may include support for DualSense controllers as well after the recent PS5 launch. It said that the new iOS 14.3 beta release “appears to include behind-the-scenes support for the new Playstation 5 DualSense controller.” However, this doesn’t mean that the DualSense controller will work. “Both wired and wireless connections to the DualSense controller are non-functional as of this first beta,” the report confirmed. Apple hasn’t mentioned anything officially about supporting Playstation 5 DualSense controllers.
