To connect a game controller to your iPhone or iPad



If you like mobile gaming, iOS is for you. Between the long list of great iPhone games and the best Apple Arcade games, there's a lot you can talk about. While many titles are specifically designed for a touch screen, it is inconvenient for others to tap and swipe the screen. The good news is that you can easily connect a game controller to your iPhone or iPad. Apple has added this option in iOS 13 just in time for the launch of its subscription game service Apple Arcade.

If you play something like Fortnite or Cat Quest 2 On an iPad, a controller makes things really easier. It's surprisingly easy to add a PS4 DualShock 4 controller or an Xbox One S controller (or a newer one). And you can add them not only to iPhones and iPads, but also to an iPod Touch or Apple TV. How It Works:
