It’s official: 8BitDo’s line of controllers are now compatible with a wide range of Apple devices, including the iPhone, iPad, Mac, and Apple TV. This is great news for gamers of all stripes, as it opens up a whole new world of gaming possibilities on Apple’s platform.
8BitDo is best known for its line of retro-inspired wireless controllers, which are designed to work with a wide variety of gaming platforms. Until now, however, Apple’s devices have been largely left out of the equation. That all changes with this latest update, which finally brings support for 8BitDo’s controllers to Apple’s ecosystem.
This is a big win for gamers who want to use their 8BitDo controllers with their Apple devices. It’s also a big win for 8BitDo itself, as it gives the company a foothold in the growing field of mobile gaming. With Apple devices accounting for a large portion of the mobile market, this is a smart move on 8BitDo’s part.
So what does this mean for you, the gamer? Well, if you’ve been dying to play your favorite retro games on your iPhone or iPad, 8BitDo’s controllers are now a viable option. The same goes for gamers who want to use their 8BitDo controllers with their Mac or Apple TV.
Of course, it’s worth noting that not all of 8BitDo’s controllers are compatible with Apple’s devices. The company’s current crop of controllers includes the SN30 Pro+, the SN30 Pro, the NES30 Pro, the NES30Arcade, and the SNES30 Arcade. Of these, only the SN30 Pro+ and the SN30 Pro are compatible with Apple’s devices.
Still, this is a big step in the right direction for 8BitDo, and we’re excited to see where the company goes from here.
