Nintendos classic Switch controllers are now compatible with Apple devices.

Apples iOS 16 already brought compatibility with Nintendos Switch Pro controller and Joy-Con.

Now, with its 16.1 update, the four classic controllers can also be used: the NES, SNES, Mega Drive, and N64 controllers.

This compatibility isnt included in Apples patch notes, but was instead discovered by Twitter user Steve Troughton-Smith, as Mac Stories reported (via IGN).

Neat, iOS/tvOS 16.1 support the official BT/USB-C Super Nintendo controller for the Switch 😄 I don’t have the N64 or NES versions to test with, but I believe they are supported now too 🎮 pic.twitter.com/mfkTIHpXun

The news means that all Switch controllers can now be paired with Apple devices, though you may struggle to find the classic controllers. Theyre available on Nintendos online store but are frequently out of stock.

The Joy-Con are also supported by Steam, as per an update in August.

Apple will also soon be forced to adopt a single charging cable for its devices under new EU regulations.
