iOS 16 Natively Supports Nintendo Switch Joy-Cons

While Apple announced the new iOS 16, it didn't mention that the update will have native support for Nintendo Switch Joy-Cons and Nintendo’s Pro Controller.

App developer @rileytestut pointed out that Apple's new operating system will support either one or two Joy-Cons via Bluetooth. Apple engineer Nat Brown also confirmed that you can pair two Joy-Con controllers and toggle between using both or using one by pressing and holding the Capture and Home buttons on either Joy-Con.

Since iOS 16 is still in its developer beta stage, there will be bugs and some users have already reported bugs when switching between single and combined Joy-Cons.
