iOS 13 – How to Connect PS4 or Xbox One Controller to Play iOS Games


hi everyone Aaron here for ZolloTech and
I want to show you how you could pair your ps4 or your Xbox One S controller with
your iPad or your iPhone running iOS 13 so I wanted to show you how easy it is
it’s pretty simple and straightforward the first thing you need to do is select
your device go into settings then you want to go to bluetooth and if it’s a
ps4 it’s pretty simple and straightforward all you need to do is
hold share and the power button hold it until you see this blink it’s about
three seconds and it shows up here Dual Shock for wireless controller tap on and
over here it pairs and it’s connected and now we can use it on a game so let’s
go into real racing I’ll show you that this works it’s pretty simple and
straightforward and you’ll see it says game controller connected and we’ll just
go ahead and hit continue for now just so I can show you that it works and you
use the triggers for your gas and your brake it works really well let me show
you real quick turn it down a little bit and I’ll just show you that it works
I’ll show you with a couple other games as well but let’s go here so you’ll see
I’m controlling the steering wheel with this and I can brake will go a little
bit faster I’ve got different view options by pushing the button up here
and of course I’m going off the track there there we go and I think you get
the idea it works really well if I want to hit the PS button it doesn’t do
anything I hit option it goes to quit and resume so it works really well and
it’s pretty simple and straightforward now let me show you how to pair the Xbox
One S controller again go to settings make sure you’re under Bluetooth and then it
doesn’t seem to pair when the other controllers paired so we’ll disconnect
this one for now we’ll go back so it seems like currently under the betas it
only allows one controller so press and hold the Xbox button hold the pairing
button at the top for a few seconds and it should show up down here there we go
it says Spock’s wireless controller and I’ve had
a couple issues with this pairing so we’ll pair again there we go
now it’s paired now if we try to connect the DualShock at the same time see if we
can get that to work well hit DualShock and it won’t allow it to connect both at
the same time so just keep that in mind so here we can control fortnight we can
hit the little bumper buttons here go back and forth hit play we’ll play and
wait for it to go into a game now I’m not going to play a full game but I
wanted to show you that it works we’re into the game now and of course we can
use our Xbox controller to play the game so if you want to run around do whatever
you need to do your triggers do exactly the same thing they do on an Xbox so
it’s really nice very easy to use and of course you could jump using the a
button or you could use the ps4 controller if you’d like but it works
really well you look around just like you would expect so it works really well
let me show you on one older device on an iPhone here’s my oldest iOS 13
supported device and you can pair gaming controllers with this as well so we’ll
go to settings I’ll get into bluetooth and let’s set this down we’ll grab the
ps4 controller and again hold share and the power button until it blinks here
there we go and now it shows up on the iPhone se and it’s connected so if we go
home then we slide over and go to minecraft we’ll wait for it to load now
we’re in a game of Minecraft and I can walk around just like I would with the
Xbox or the ps4 we can just move around if we want to chip away here at some of
the grass we can do that go into our options go back out and it works really
well and I think this adds a lot of value to the iPhone and the iPads now it
will work with Apple TVs as well once iOS 13 is released that’s it for how to
pair your Xbox one ass or ps4 controller to an iOS 13 device it’s pretty simple
and straightforward but if you have any questions let me know in the comments
