The new generation design for the Xbox Series S and X controller was not changed. Rather, it was improved. Here is how to connect Xbox Series X and S controller with Apple and Fire TV.
Both Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S were launched towards the latter part of last year. The new console comes with a new controller (in the box).
The Xbox Series S and X controller works with both the latest and previous generation of Microsoft consoles and as well as other devices. However, both Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S use the same controller.
However, the latest controller is seen as more of an iterative upgrade over the previous generation controller. More so, it has the USB Type-C cable port and Bluetooth functionality which allows it to make both wired and wireless connection with other devices.
