Apple TV and iOS will be bringing in support for PS4’s Dual Shock console controllers, as well as Xbox One S controllers. This will only include the original controllers for now, not any third party ones. So make sure to get your Xbox One and PSN cards now so you can play all your favorite games with these great controllers on Apple devices.
Will there be any exclusive games?
For now, no one is saying anything about ports or console games coming to Apple. But having the console support along with the Remote Play app, which was released in March, your iPhone and iPad is essentially a portable PS4. You’ll find that the app allows you to have all of the same PS4-related controls. Unfortunately, some games aren’t compatible with the app, so make sure to keep that in mine. However, this controller support could also increase the use of other gaming apps, such as the recently released Steam Link app for iOS. So as long as your PC and mobile device are connected to the same Wi-Fi network, you can stream your steam games to an iPhone or iPad. And we also have Steam cards available to make all of your Steam purchases as efficiently as possible.
You will have controller support very soon
The new updates are set to arrive with the iOS 13 version, and the new tvOS that will be released around the end of the summer. It’s also been rumored that Apple will also be releasing Apple Arcade, a curated subscription service that will work on iOS, iPadOS, and tvOS. Apparently, there will be around 100 new and exclusive games that will be available on the platform.
So it does makes sense for Apple to add controller support, as they don’t currently have their own controller. And adding a third party controller on their OS would pretty much be a bust for most people. But with the support of Xbox One and PS4 controllers on Apple devices, the possibilities could really open up for gamers in many ways.
