This was announced by Riley Testut, one of the developers of the “alternative” application store AltStore. He found support for new controllers in the beta version of iOS 16, which was released yesterday.

According to him, the Switch Pro gamepad “works perfectly”, Joy-Con controllers are also recognized by the system as a single device.

This information was confirmed by Apple manager Nat Brown and further explained how in iOS 16 you can switch Joy-Con modes between operating as a single device or as two independent controllers.

This solution will not only allow mobile game developers to use Switch console controllers in their projects, but may, in theory, interest Nintendo in porting some of its own games to the Apple platform or at least make it easier to develop a “multiplatform”.
