Apple TV gets support for PlayStation and Xbox controllers

Apple TV will support PlayStation and Xbox controllers

Apple Announces tvOS 13 With Multi-User Support, More

Support for Microsoft's Xbox One controller and Sony's DualShock 4 controller will be added to Apple TV with the forthcoming tvOS update in fall 2019.

Allowing users to connect to Apple TV means it's likely we will see native controller support for Apple Arcade. The integration of hardware, software and services was one of the main themes at this year's WWDC. This will without a doubt make developers not only want to port their games over since everyone will have a controller (plus super easy porting to tvOS and macOS), but also will most likely want to make developers update their games for controller support.

Full-screen trailers: Expect a new look for tvOS that will include full-screen trailers on the OS's main screen.

The news comes not long after the California-based company unveiled its gaming streaming service, Apple Arcade.

The biggest and most visible change is the new home screen, which starts playing video from the home page, when before it was high-quality stills.

By changing user, you can get personalized recommendations for new content.

The company is launching TV+ later this year, to go along with the refreshed app and the recently rolled out Channels. Thus, every different user will get a tailored "up next" list for their own preferences and their own preferences only.

Using 4K HDR footage, you'll have the option to project and display a stunning underwater landscape on your Apple TV. Compatibility is expected to come with the tvOS 13 update.
