Xbox one S

So the new xbox one s just came out and the controller is bluetooth enabled so does that mean I can link it to my phone or ipad?

Possibly, we'd have to wait and see if someone who has one tries. I'd say most likely.

Well I have 1 so I guess I need to try it. What game would the controller be enabled for though? If that works that would be the best mobile controller ever man.

All iOS devices have to use MFI certified controllers. I would love Apple to update iOS 10 to just use the Xbox one controller, but can't see them changing the spec.

MFI controllers do not have clickable sticks. In addition, all the buttons and d-pad are pressure sensitive, while they are on/off on the Xbox one controller.
