Apple tv game controller

We already have some news about what to expect when the new Apple TV 2020 is released, but the interesting news is that the game controller is also under development.

It looks like this may be an interesting attempt by Apple to bring Apple Arcade to the forefront of the next generation of Apple TV. Although you may be able to play some games with the included remote control, there is no substitute for a dedicated controller.

So far, we don't have too many details about the expectations of this new hardware. We know it will be impressive and will reportedly be equipped with the A12X bionic chipset. This will allow upcoming devices to play in high definition effortlessly, and will even handle some of the most challenging graphics games that Apple Arcade has to provide.

The message that the controller is being prepared comes from Twitter user Jioriku. The tweet also indicated not to expect any kind of announcements during WWDC20. Jioriku also seems to confirm that the Apple TV 6 will be equipped with the A12X Bionic chipset, which is "the absolute power of the machine", and heat does not appear to be a problem.

Since many games in Apple Arcade require more than just a TV remote to play, it makes perfect sense that Apple wants to work on a proprietary controller. Unfortunately, we currently do not have any information about the appearance of this controller, but we think it is very similar to the style that we are used to when using Xbox, PlayStation and Nintendo Switch Pro controllers.

Currently, there is already controller support for iPhone and iPad , allowing you to connect to a PlayStation 4 or Xbox One controller to play. We don't think Apple TV will cancel this support, but we have to wait and see.

It would be great if this controller were bundled with an Apple TV device, but we expect you to pay a high premium from Apple for this kind of fun.

Since it has not been officially announced yet, we will make sure to pay close attention to more technical and pricing details. As WWDC 2020 will kick off on June 22, we look forward to receiving some news and even teasers during this event.
