iPhone, iPad and Apple TV owners will be able to enjoy the new feature the next fall: upcoming operational systems from Apple are expected to debut in September. Linking a controller to one of the listed devices won't be a brainer: simply connect the gamepad through the Bluetooth settings of your gadget and the deed is done.

Obviously, this innovation is a precursor of the upcoming Apple Arcade game-streaming platform. However, adepts of mobile gaming will appreciate it even if buying Arcade subscription isn't on their bucket list. Such popular mobile titles as Fortnite, PUBG, Vainglory, Minecraft Pocket Edition and also GTA: Vice City and San Andreas ports will be free from the awful tyranny of touchscreen mechanics.

By the way, Sony adepts may feel a bit privileged: they need only a DualShock 4 controller to improve their gaming — all thanks to Remote Play support in iOS. Xbox cannot brag about having the same method.

iOS and iPadOS beta versions were released on July 8 2019. If you would like to get a hold of the distributive and learn more about its functionality personally, sign up for the beta-testing program here.

So be it.
