    Since tvOS 13 now officially supports the X-Box one and PS4 Controller via BT I would assume that the same hold true for iOS 13 as well. Can anyone please confirm this.

    That's awesome! So that means we can use X-box one controller with the steamlink.app now!

    I’m assuming that just means the Xbox One controller that is compatible with Bluetooth. The first version of the XBOne controller required a dongle to be used wireless with a PC, or required a cable as it used some funky proprietary wireless set up.

    How old is that controller? I bought my X-Box one controller in December 2018. I wonder if it will work.

    This is the one I got - https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B078T3R8YS/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o08_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    UPDATE: Actually I have the exact same model controller as you, 1708, but mine's black. So hopefully it'll work!

    UPDATE2: It works, I was able to pair it to my Apple TV, however couldn't get it to pair with my iPhone XS Max, although it detected it, but then it resprung the device and then I tried it again, no success.

    With Console Controller support, I would't be surprised that once iOS 13 launch's that we see Steam game play on iPad. Witcher 3, Cup-head, Division 2..etc. Or console ports that are part of the App Store.

    Does anyone know if the controller that comes with the One X is straight BT? I don’t think my Elite controller I normally play with is but that one might be since it’s newer? I bought it last summer. Would finally have a use for it.

    In my opinion, controller support is the final piece that was holding everything back in terms of gaming on iOS. I understand that touch was a big component of gaming in the early days but that’s not really the way forward. The new iPad Pro is an order of magnitude more powerful than the Nintendo switch, it’s trivial to enable games to support docking to a TV or monitor and now with control pad support the possibilities are endless

    Imagine some AAA titles on the iPad docked to the TV.

    I’m just really really hoping that the new Xbox game streaming service has some form of iOS client or web interface.

    I can also confirm that Model 1708 of the Xbox One Controller works!

    But for some reason on the iPhone it resprings in an endless loop when trying to pair the controller. This is on an iPhone XS Max.
