You can now buy Xbox One controllers via Apple's online store

They're great options for playing games on mobile, actually, so it's a pretty great idea.


Interested in using a controller with your favorite iOS game that supports it? Look no further than Apple's online store for one that should fit all your needs.

Needing something to play all your new Apple Arcade games with? Then like we said, just head over to the online Apple destination. Oddly enough, you'll find an Xbox One controller, which Apple has begun selling online. It will cost you $59.95 to purchase, which is basically MSRP. If you really want a new Xbox One controller, you could totally go to GameStop, eBay, Amazon, Walmart, or really anywhere else that sells them and get a deal most days.

But the price isn't the news here. It's the fact that Apple is selling them to begin with. It makes sense though, especially since now PS4 and Xbox controllers may be used with iOS devices. At present, there aren't any PS4 controllers for sale there, though. That may end up changing in the future, but there's no indication that it will. It seems like a crazy thing that the Xbox controllers are there though, right?

With all the wide variety of games on the Apple Arcade and the fact that most of them support controllers, it's a no-brainer to take one of the controllers you likely already have in your gaming arsenal and use it with your favorite. There are 100 titles to choose from for $4.99 a month, so there's bound to be something you want to use a controller with. Our vote is on Sneaky Sasquatch.
