Apple’s latest device updates have made playing retro and retro-inspired games more authentic by adding support for Nintendo’s Classic controllers.

Those with devices running iOS 16.1, tvOS 16.1, iPad iOS 16.1, and macOS Ventura can take advantage of a load of new features on the best iPhones, best iPads, and best MacBooks and Macs. But one update we didn’t realize would be coming will be welcomed by anyone who loves playing classic-style games through Apple Arcade and the App Store.

That’s because, post-update, you’ll be able to wirelessly connect the NES, SNES, and N64 Bluetooth Classic Controllers to your Apple device of choice (via MacStories (opens in new tab)).

These Nintendo Switch-compatible versions of controllers from Nintendo’s past were created to give Nintendo Switch Online subscribers a stronger sense of nostalgia when playing retro games through Nintendo Online, and now you can bring that experience to your iPhone and iPad gaming too.
