Apple is including native help for the Nintendo Swap Professional and Pleasure-Con controllers in iOS 16. Riley Testut, one of many iOS builders behind AltStore, found the brand new controller help in a developer beta of iOS 16 that was launched yesterday.
The Nintendo Swap Professional Controller works “completely” in keeping with Testut, and each Pleasure-Con controllers present up as a single gadget for apps and video games to reap the benefits of. Nat Brown, an engineering supervisor at Apple, has confirmed the new controller support and even revealed there’s a neat methodology to modify how the Pleasure-Cons work in iOS 16. You’ll be able to dynamically change between utilizing each Pleasure-Cons as a single controller or two separate ones by holding the screenshot and residential buttons for a number of seconds.
The Pleasure-Con help opens up the iPhone and iPad to new video games that may reap the benefits of these controllers, and will probably be fascinating to see what builders do right here. Apple’s work comes greater than a yr after the iPhone maker added support for the PS5’s DualSense controller, alongside help for the Xbox Sequence X controllers.
iOS 16 is at the moment accessible as a developer preview, with a public beta anticipated subsequent month and a full launch within the fall.
