Turn Your iPhone Or iPad Into A Gaming Console - HDMI+Controller+Apple Arcade=Awesome!

  • Ajoutée 26 oct. 2019
  • In this video, I show you how to turn your iPhone or iPad into a Gaming Console using An Xbox One / Play Station 4 Controller and an HDMI adapter! With the addition of controller support and Apple Arcade with IOS 13, its easier than ever to play your favorite iPhone iPad games on a big screen and this even works wait Fortnite and Minecraft! You can also turn your Android phone into a gaming console but you need to make sure your device supports HDMI Out. In this video, I’m using the iPhone 11 pro max but this will work on and IOS device running IOS 13 or Higher.

    Maybe worth noting that not all Xbox controllers have Bluetooth. =)
    Most older ones don't.

    Easier (but more expensive) to just buy an Apple TV, but this is cool if you need mobility.

      Isaac Church we are all aware that you can get an AppleTV. If you’re at a friends house or in a hotel etc then you won’t have your AppleTV so that’s when this will be used. Cmon now

    Not ALL Xbox One controllers will work. Only ones that came out the time of the Xbox One S or later will work. Earlier Xbox One controllers didn't support the Bluetooth protocol.

    Some of those Apple Arcade games are really fun but there is no way I will actually pay a monthly fee to play those games. I would buy some of the games. But paying a Netflix subscription to play mobile games is ridiculous.

  • Jon P Ybanez

    do either iOS 13 or Android 10 support multiple controllers connected at once? and if so, are there any multiplayer games anyone can recommend that takes advantage of a setup like this?


    Can someone pls tell me if iOS has any good emulators? I have been finding them for weeks.
    Before android people come in , hear me out. Im an android user from the very start and still love android and hold it as better. But there is this ipad i have and i really want to use its better screen and power for emulation. But just like apple is, i cant find one good emulator.
    If anyone has ever used one, pls comment

      There is retroarch and provenance too! Get them through iOS ninja or Tweakbox they may work for a week or 3 months it’s the only downside. Unless you can jailbreak!

      The Apple TV supports Apple Arcade games and controller pairing, but only if your Apple TV supports TVOS 13.

    Is possible to change between hdmi mirror and dex mode on Galaxy S8? I watched some videos and some adapters opened dex mode automatically and others just mirrores the screen.
    Is possible mirror screen of a s8 and play emulators on tv with controller? And what about install steam link and stream pc games? Is it worth?

    • trg7843
      trg7843 Il y a 2 mois

      Yes, there are and you need to expect some lags using a PS4/Xbox controller. For better game play, you need to find a controller that has lesser lag. I'm not sure the best one but I'm thinking of getting a 8BitDo SN30 Pro+ controller.

      Get and Android device. Apple doesn't let you use retroarch on their devices and likely never will.

    You can do this with any Galaxy S8 and higher, or Samsung Tab S4/S6. It's a shame so many smartphones don't support HDMI out.

    • MrPeanutPlays
      MrPeanutPlays Il y a 2 mois +1

      @J Will I'm for HDMI out on devices. I want it to be a standard. But it doesn't seem like that's what the industry is aiming for for some reason. I have to use scrcpy on PC and connect my phone to it but it doesn't produce sound through the application and latency is an issue especially when you run games.

    • J Will
      J Will Il y a 2 mois

      I have a Samsung Tab S4, and take it on trips. Not having to sign in to my streaming services when at a hotel is enough to make HDMI out worth it.

    • MrPeanutPlays
      MrPeanutPlays Il y a 2 mois +1

      HDMI out on phones is what I've always wanted but the tech industry is just full of crap. Putting on and removing what they want.

      MrPeanutPlays Il y a 2 mois +1

    I've been doing this with my Huawei Mate 20 Pro for the last year. It's great for native Android games, and emulation. Plus I could do the same on my old Sony Xperia Z3 Compact through MHL.

    YOUNG KHALID Il y a 2 mois

    What HDMI adapter did you use ? Was there any lag ? I have one like yours but when I play anything that’s 60fps, there is input lag controlling the game. Anything at 30fps works pretty well

      There's no latency as the phone is wired to the TV, just like a console ..
      But the wireless controller can cause latency.
