@thegreatmikeo good to know about the Xbox one controller thank you 🙏🙏

However, I’m not sure if that method has downsides over the regular Bluetooth device recognition.
In case it helps someone else, here’s a review of the 8bitdo working with iOS. The video creator explains how to add the controller with the accessibility method.
