A few weeks ago, Apple presented a very promising service that was making the company enter the video game business . It’s true that in the App Store we can find incredible games, but with Apple Arcade the company wants to go further and has more than 100 titles under its arm.
The official launch of Apple Arcade will come after the summer , although it is very likely that in the imminent WWDC 19 we will know more news along with the launch of iOS 13. However, Apple Arcade could be much more ambitious than we thought since it seems that Apple would be developing its own wireless controller compatible with the iPhone, iPad, Apple TV and Mac.
If Apple has made a firm commitment to , its own universal video game platform for all its devices, it makes perfect sense to launch a controller to make playing games much more comfortable. It is true that we have many controllers available in the App Store and in other stores and thanks to the MFi certification we know that they work perfectly, however an own Apple controller would be much more interesting.
According to this developer, Apple is testing a proprietary driver for video games on Apple TV, we understand that it should be compatible with other devices as well. With Apple Arcade the Apple TV can become a real console and an Apple controller is essential to achieve this.
Although Apple has failed in the past in the world of video games, as with its Pippin console, it has been incredibly successful with wireless devices such as AirPods in recent years. Following this example, this so-called controller could connect incredibly fast between our devices and make Apple Arcade conquer the most demanding and succeed much faster.
