iOS 13: Watch an Xbox Controller Connect to iPad and Play Fortnite [VIDEO]
At WWDC, Apple announced tvOS 13 would bring support for Xbox and Playstation controllers to connect to Apple TV for gaming, setting the stage for this fall’s launch of Apple Arcade.
One Reddit user has shared a video demonstrating how easy it is to connect your Xbox controller to a 10.5-inch iPad Pro and play Fortnite.
All you have to do is turn on the Xbox One Controller, head over to your iOS Bluetooth settings, tap and hold the connect button on the Xbox controller, then tap the latter when it is discovered in Bluetooth settings.
The process is the same for a Playstation controller–just hold the Playstation button and share button until the light bar flashes.
Once connected, you’ll be able to use the Xbox to play iOS games which support MFi, including Fortnite, Asphalt 9: Legends, and more. Here is a list of support MFi iOS titles.
Connecting the controller was “even easier than connecting your controller to your Xbox honestly”, says the Redditor. There is no need to own an Xbox or Playstation for this process to work, you just need to have one of these Bluetooth controllers.
