If you’re the type of person who played Pokémon Crystal on a jailbroken iPhone 3 during high school math class, there’s even more big news coming with WWDC than M2 MacBook. With iOS 16, Apple iPhone will support Bluetooth pairing with Nintendo Switch Joy-Con and Pro controllers, giving you more control when playing mobile games.
According to Apple engineer Nat Brown, Joy-Cons can be paired as one controller using both left and right sides, or one Joy-Con can be used as a controller. For some users error messages when switching between combo and single controls, but you should expect some issues in the new iOS 16 beta. Ideally, users should be able to split and recombine individual Joy-Cons by holding an iPhone screenshot and the Home button for a few seconds.
Former GBA4iOS creator Riley Testut, who spotted Joy-Con compatibility, is now developing Delta, another iOS game emulator. While the emulator isn’t in the App Store, you don’t need to jailbreak your phone to download it, unlike the old days. But if you want to play games like the original “Super Smash Brothers” on your iPhone, remember that downloading copyrighted ROMs online is illegal. Personally, at the very least, connecting a Switch controller to my iPhone will revolutionize my iOS Tetris gameplay.
