Pair a controller

Learn how to pair the following game controllers to your iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Apple TV, or Mac.

Pairing mode steps, button controls, and button customization vary across game controllers. Check with your game controller manufacturer for details. 


Use multiple game controllers with Apple TV

Apple TV 4K and Apple TV HD support up to four Bluetooth game controllers simultaneously. If you're using a Bluetooth audio accessory with Apple TV, only one game controller is supported.

Some apps let you use an iOS device as an additional controller, which doesn't require a Bluetooth connection. For help using an iOS device as a controller in an app, contact the app developer.
