The iOS 14.3 software update that Apple started testing with developers yesterday expands on existing third-party controller support with two new choices: Sony’s latest PlayStation DualSense Wireless Controller that ships with their new PlayStation 5 console and Amazon’s Luna controller, pictured above, which was designed for their own Amazon’s gaming service.
The iOS 13, iPadOS 13, tvOS 13 and macOS Catalina updates last year enabled initial support for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox Wireless controllers on the iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Apple TV and Mac. iOS 14 brought richer button customization along with expanded controller support.
iOS 14 supports the following controllers:
- Xbox Wireless Controller with Bluetooth (Model 1708)
- Xbox Elite Wireless Controller Series 2
- Xbox Adaptive Controller
- PlayStation DualShock 4 Wireless Controller
In addition, Apple devices support MFi-certified Bluetooth controllers.
According to Apple’s support document at the time of this writing, Microsoft and Apple are working together to bring compatibility for the Xbox Series X controller “in a future update.”
