Apple now selling Xbox Wireless Controller on its online store

Apple has started selling Xbox Wireless Controller at the Apple Store this week.

The Cupertino-based company introduced support for the PlayStation and Xbox wireless gamepads with iOS 13, iPadOS, tvOS 13, and macOS 10.15 Catalina. Because just so long as you've got the latest version of iOS, iPad OS, or Apple TV, you can play games wirelessly with the Xbox One controller.

It's odd that the Xbox controller is now being flogged by Apple but the DualShock 4 is missing in action.

There's also a suite of other controller support for Apple Arcade, so one's not limited to controllers from Microsoft and Sony.

You'll need to fork out £54.95 for the Microsoft controller, so it's not exactly a super cheap accessory.

You can find an official wireless gaming controller connectivity how-to guide on Apple (via the Internet Archive's Wayback Machine for posterity) right this minute.

The Microsoft-made Xbox Wireless Controller was added to the Apple Store online today - and you'll likely see it in your local physical Apple Store now too.

Anyway, while we don't know what sort of discussions (if any) took place between Microsoft and Apple to make this development a reality, it's good news for consumers.
