During Apple’s WWDC 2019 keynote, Apple showed off a lot of things, as reported by Engadget. The online publication writes that even their cut down version of the event lasts about half an hour.
Compatibility with PS4 and Bluetooth-equipped Xbox One controllers
They also write that one of the most exciting reveals was that tvOS 13 would be compatible with the PS4 and Bluetooth-equipped Xbox One controllers.
This is definitely great for both Apple’s own Arcade gaming plans and any other that have cloud aspirations.
The publication writes that if it’s not clear enough, “it also extends to iPad and iPhone.”
After iOS 13 rolls out, users will be able to use these console controllers easily with their device, and without any workarounds needed.
They continue and write that Apple is spending hundreds of millions in order to get games to be a part of its subscription package and it’s great to learn that the controllers that people like and have at home will still be able to do their job, as the online publication puts it.
Here’s PlayStation’s official announcement: “Update from today’s #WWDC: official DualShock 4 support will be coming to iOS, iPadOS, and tvOS this fall. We’ll keep you posted!”
Someone asked on Twitter:
So this means I can play mobile games with my ps4 controller??

And the response came:
Not just that but you’ll be able to use it on the remote play app and play your PS4 games on your iPad with a DS4! ?
