Nintendo’s classic Switch controllers compatible with Apple devices

Nintendo’s classic Switch controllers are now compatible with Apple devices.

Apple’s iOS 16 already brought compatibility with Nintendo’s Switch Pro controller and Joy-Con.

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

This compatibility isn’t included in Apple’s patch notes, but was discovered by Twitter user Steve Troughton-Smith, as reported by Mac Stories (via IGN).

The news means that all Switch controllers can now be paired with Apple devices, although you may struggle to find the classic controllers. They are available on Nintendo’s online store but are often out of stock.

Joy-Cons are also supported by Steam, according to an update in August.

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