Important

Xbox One Bluetooth compatible wireless controller:
Remember that there are two versions of the controller: on the new design, the “Xbox” button is moulded into the main plastic body of the controller, along with the analogue sticks and buttons (such as A, B, X, and Y).

Controller updates:
Microsoft recommends updating your Xbox controller to make sure that you device is compatible with the latest software and hardware updates. Here’s how to update your Xbox controller.
