The two most powerful companies in the international technology market, Apple and Microsoft, are working together to make the new leaders of the Xbox Series X and Series S work on iPhones and iPads.
With this they hope to bring a couple of games to Apple platforms, with the next arrival of the web download system these two may have something on their hands.
Currently, the new drivers are not officially supported on iOS or iPadOS, but Apple says that:
“Microsoft and we are working together to bring Xbox Series X controller support to customers in a future update.”
The new update from Apple and Microsoft will allow Xbox owners to play compatible Apple Arcade and App Store titles with the new Xbox Series controller on iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, Apple TV and Mac.
It is not clear how long it will take for Apple to certify the new X Series controllers. What is clear is that in the future we will be able to enjoy a better gaming experience thanks to collaborations like these, and it will be something that will benefit the users.
This is not the first time that the two companies have had to work to improve Xbox controller compatibility.. Apple worked with Microsoft to add support for the Xbox Elite 2 controller and the Xbox Adaptive controller to iOS 14 earlier this year.
Meanwhile, the Sony PlayStation 5 DualSense controller or the Amazon Luna controller is not mentioned on Apple’s support page, but MacRumors has spotted a code that mentions the controllers in the beta versions of iOS and iPadOS 14.3.
