Apple iOS 16.4 supports Sony DualSense Edge wireless controller
Apple released system updates for iOS 16.4, iPadOS 16.4, macOS Ventura 13.3, and tvOS 16.4 today, including 21 new emoticons, as well as other enhanced features, bug fixes, and security updates. However, many users may have missed an important additional feature, which is support for the DualSense Edge wireless controller used by Sony PlayStation 5 game consoles.
Currently, the oldest iPhone models that support iOS 16.4 are the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, and iPhone X, all of which use the A11 Bionic chip. Although these are products from several years ago, the CPU and GPU still provide sufficient performance to support the use of the DualSense Edge wireless controller for gaming. In fact, as early as several months ago this year, many users complained online that Apple devices were not compatible with Sony’s new controller, so this update can be considered a response to public opinion.
Last year, Sony released the DualSense Edge wireless controller, its first high-performance and customizable controller, similar in positioning to Microsoft’s Xbox Elite controller. The DualSense Edge wireless controller provides various hardware and software customization options to enable players to personalize their settings.
In addition to including joystick caps and rear buttons, the DualSense Edge wireless controller also comes with a USB Type-C charging cable. The connector of this charging cable can be locked to the controller to ensure that the DualSense Edge wireless controller does not disconnect due to intense shaking.
