One of the more unlikely but welcome changes to the new iOS 14.5 beta update is the support for the DualSense and Xbox Series X controllers. Even though Apple is not known for its gaming prowess, this is a great addition to its ecosystem. iOS or iPadOS do not currently support either controller. The latest update adds support for both controllers. Apple had said that it was planning on integrating next-gen controller support back in November.

Apple is no stranger to this sort of move. The company had earlier worked with Microsoft to include support for the Xbox Elite 2 controller.
