Xbox Series X support for Apple devices coming
Xbox says that with the xCloud service, it will enable playback from any platform and develop the controller to be used on consoles, PCs and phones. Once that support arrives, you can connect the controller directly to your MacBook or iPad using the USB-C connection.
It was the first time that MacRumors shared this support with the Xbox controller in a document that includes future compatibility plans for Apple devices. After gaining compatibility, users will be able to easily connect the controller to any device running iOS, iPadOS, macOS or tvOS.
It is unknown whether a similar support will be with Sony and subsequently with the PS 5 controller, DualSense. There is no information on this issue yet, but according to some reports, iOS 14.3 is said to include support for the Playstation 5 controller.
