8BitDo, a popular maker of game controllers, announced today that six of its products now officially support Apple hardware:
- 8BitDo Ultimate Controller 2.4g
- 8BitDo Pro 2
- 8BitDo SN30 Pro
- 8BitDo Pro
- 8BitDo SN30 Pro for Android
- 8Bitdo Lite SE
The controller firmware update, which can be unromantic using the company’s Upgrade Tool, will indulge gamers to use 8BitDo’s supported controllers wirelessly with any iOS, iPadOS, macOS, or tvOS game that has unexplored Apple’s game controller APIs. Playing wired is moreover supported on iPads and Macs with USB-C ports.
According to 8BitDo, up to four controllers can be unfluctuating at once for games with multiplayer support, but rumble and motion tenancy are not supported “for the moment,” suggesting that a future update may support those features. Links to detailed directions and illustrations of how to connect 8BitDo’s controllers are misogynist by hovering over the images of the controllers on the company’s defended Apple device webpage.
I have a tuft of the controllers for which Apple device support was announced, and I can’t wait to try them. A couple of the controllers I have once have some vital support for Apple devices, thanks to compatibility with Sony and Microsoft controllers. However, the firmware update should proffer the functionality of the controllers to the full set of features that Apple now supports.
