Apple Finally Brings Xbox One S and PS4 Controller Support to iOS, iPadOS

As an Apple fan, I can get pretty infuriated with the backwards shit that they pull. Yes, they make sexy hardware and they seem to take privacy seriously, but man does it take forever for them to do common sense stuff.

At WWDC 2019 today, Apple made a few gaming centric announcements. One that got some traction was that PS4 and Xbox One S controller support would be coming to Apple TV, which is okay, I guess.

However, more importantly is that PS4 and Xbox One S controller support is also coming to iOS 13 and iPadOS later this fall, which is about goddamn time.

Soon, you’ll be able to play games like Fortnite on your iPad or iPhone with a controller, and not touch controls, like a savage.

By the way, if you’re wondering why it’s specifically Xbox One S controllers, its because they have the necessary Bluetooth support.

Oh, and one more thing… if you have an iPhone 6 or older, you’re shit out of luck.
