8BitDo Controllers Now Work With iPhones, iPads, Macs, And Apple TV

A new software update means that 8BitDo SN30 Pro for Android, SN30 Pro, Pro+, Pro 2, Ultimate 2.4g, and Lite SE controllers can now be used with Apple devices.

Those controllers require Apple’s hardware to have been updated to the latest software available to them, 8BitDo confirmed.

All of the controllers that support Bluetooth can connect to Apple’s devices wirelessly, while others that have a cable can connect via a USB-C port. Up to four controllers can be connected at any one time depending on what device is being used, although some features like motion control and rumble aren’t supported.

Owners of compatible 8BitDo controllers will need to update their firmware in order to connect to Apple gear, with the 8BitDo website the place to go for people who need to do that.

The controllers could be a great way for people to play on their Apple devices, including the Apple TV. Apple Arcade is full of games that support controllers of course, while the wider App Store also has plenty of games available for users to download. Many include controller support, while those that play on the Apple TV greatly benefit from allowing people to play without having to use the Siri Remote.

If you already have a compatible 8BitDo controller this is great news, and it also ensures that those buying a new controller now have more options than ever as well.
