Xbox Series X Controller Support Coming to Apple Devices

An update on Apple’s support page confirms that Xbox Series X controller support will be available on Apple devices. The update will allow players to pair the new Xbox controller to devices such as iPhones and Macs.

Apple mentions they are actively working to bring Xbox controller support to its devices on a page that details how to attach a DualShock 4 and Xbox Wireless Controller to Apple products. Below the list of supported controllers the page has a note.

“Microsoft and Apple are working together to bring Xbox Series X controller compatibility to customers in a future update,” reads a note on the support page as quoted by Digital Trends, Saturday (20/11/2020).

Unfortunately, no release date or time frame is listed here. For your information, the planned update will allow Xbox owners to play supported games from Apple Arcade and the App Store with new controllers on iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, Apple TV, and Mac.

Surprisingly, the support page hasn’t mentioned the PlayStation 5’s DualSense controller. While DualSense support seems possible, Apple didn’t mention any active collaboration with Sony for controller support.

While this update should come as no surprise, this capability was important to Microsoft as it expanded its xCloud offering. Microsoft’s cloud gaming service is currently only available on Android devices and Apple support is planned for next year.

Apple recently included a bit of a problem in the plan after updating its app guidelines. The company says catalog streaming services like xCloud should still offer each game as a separate download of its own.
