Microsoft has published new firmware, still in beta, for Xbox One, Xbox Elite 2, and Xbox Adaptive Controllers that reduces latency between devices and adds Bluetooth Low Energy compatibility to improve connectivity with iOS15-managed devices and iPadOS 15.
Microsoft releases new firmware for Xbox controllers
You can install this new firmware through Microsoft’s Insider program, which is a new firmware that adds features previously available only on X Series and S Series controllers, according to the Redmond firm.
Controllers that feature Bluetooth Low Energy are now available; these controllers have better compatibility between devices and a better pairing process. You’ll be able to play wirelessly on a Windows 10 PC, iOS 15+, or Android device with Bluetooth Low Energy to play remotely from your console or play in the cloud with Xbox Game Pass Ultimate on the go. With the firmware update, these controllers will remember a Bluetooth host (e.g., a smartphone) and an Xbox Wireless host (e.g., an Xbox console), allowing you to switch between previously linked devices with a simple double-press of the pairing button.
This is still an alpha release, but you may join the Xbox Insider program and begin testing it; nevertheless, we would wait until it becomes beta because it is in alpha.
