Este cambio no solo permitirá que los usuarios puedan jugar en Apple Arcade de una forma mucho más cómoda. Además, también será posible usar los mandos en juegos ya preparados para ello. Incluso, podría ser el preparativo perfecto para la llegada de las plataformas de juego en la nube que llegarán en los próximos meses, como Google Stadia o Microsoft xCloud. De momento, ya está disponible para los usuarios de la beta para desarrolladores, y lo estará pronto para los de la futura beta pública.

Last March, during the special event Apple dedicated to its new services, the Californian company revealed Apple Arcade. This service will allow us to access a catalogue full of games of all types , for all ages. This is a new platform for creators where they can share all kinds of experiences, not just triple-A. Moreover, they will be able to do so on all devices with tvOS, iOS, macOS, and iPadOS.

On Monday, 3 June, during the opening keynote of WWDC 2019, attendees and those who watched the event had the opportunity to learn about some details of special relevance to Apple Arcade. Specifically, during the presentation of the new features of tvOS 13, we learned that compatibility with Xbox One and PlayStation 4 controllers would arrive . This would allow users to use two of the most common remotes on the market on their Apple TV.

However, when talking about the other platforms and their respective updates, this detail was omitted. And after the conference, what we all expected has been confirmed. Just like the Apple TV with tvOS 13, the new version of iPadOS and iOS 13 will make these controllers compatible . In fact, users have already started testing this feature with the first compilation of the developer beta, and it has already been seen how easy it will be to link them.
