Microsoft and Apple They are working together to enable Xbox Series X and Series S controllers
to run on iPhone and iPad. There are currently no dates, but compatibility will come with a future update
of iOS and iPadOS. The two companies have already collaborated in the past on support for Xbox controllers, including the classic Xbox wireless controller, the Xbox Elite Series 2 and the Xbox Adaptive Controller.
The same thing is going to happen for the DualSense of the new PlayStation 5, with some references that have been unearthed in the beta of iOS 14.3, although in an official note from Apple it is not mentioned. At the moment Apple’s operating system supports in addition to the aforementioned controllers, also the PS4 DualShock 4 and other MFi certified Bluetooth solutions (Made for iOS).
The support for controllers is important, also in view of the arrival of Microsoft xCloud in the form of a web app next year on the devices of the Cupertino house. At the moment it is possible to play on iPhone and iPad in Remote Play through the Xbox app to titles for the new Microsoft consoles, obviously using (for now) the controller of the old Xbox One.
