Hey Apple, I’m once again asking for Nintendo Switch Pro controller support on the iPad

If someone made a Venn diagram of iPad and Nintendo Switch enthusiasts, I’d be there bang in the middle. So this one goes out to all my brethren in the same zone: Nintendo! Apple! Work together and make the Nintendo Switch Pro controller compatible with the iPad.

There we go. We can all breathe a sigh of relief. I mean, that’s kinda the main thrust of this piece, but we may as well flesh it out a bit, right?

First, history. Just over a year ago, Apple added support for the PS4‘s Dualshock and the Xbox One S gamepads on some of its operating systems (you know, like tvOS, iOS, and iPadOS).

What this meant is you could play games on Apple devices using a proper, dedicated controller. (By the way, if you want to know how to connect your PS4 or Xbox controllers to an Apple device, we put together a useful guide for you here).

But there was one popular gamepad missing from this update: the Nintendo Switch Pro controller.
