    Xbox Controller not connecting with Bluetooth


    Hey everyone!

    I need some help with something. Just the other day I got a brand new iPad Pro 2020. I’ve been trying to connect my Xbox controller to it with Bluetooth but it isn’t working. The Xbox is off and unplugged, the controller is a few years old and the iPad is
    brand new. Other things are connecting but the Xbox controller isn’t showing up no matter how long I keep the linking button on. Is there something I’m doing wrong? Advice would be appreciated.

    Thanks! Xbox Controller not connecting with Bluetooth :)

    :)

    Xbox One S Bluetooth Compatibility...

    The redesigned controller has added Bluetooth to make it easier to connect to a W10 PC. That is all. The Xbox One S does not use Bluetooth to connect to the controller.

    Does the Xbox One S console have Bluetooth Capability? I.E Bluetooth Headsets

    There is no Bluetooth radio component in the Xbox One S console itself.

    The controllers connect to the Xbox One S the same way the controllers connect to the original Xbox One: proprietary RF. You could technically connect an Xbox One S controller to an original Xbox One, and an original Xbox controller to the Xbox One S.

    The Bluetooth functionality in the new Xbox One S controller is specifically made for connecting the controller to a Windows 10 PC with the "Anniversary" update, which has the drivers needed for the controller when connected via Bluetooth.

    not able to use headphones through 3.5 mm jack connected to xbox one controller when the controller is connected to pc via bluetooth

    Is it possible to use the headphones via 3.5 mm jack connected to XBOX controller when the controller is connected to PC via bluetooth?
    Hi,

    I'm afraid not, it's a limitation of using Bluetooth to connect the controller to a PC:

    Take from the
    official support link


    Things to keep in mind:

    ·
    For best performance, update your controller.

    ·
    Bluetooth is supported on PCs, tablets, and laptops. It is not supported on mobile devices.

    ·
    Bluetooth doesn’t support attachments such as headsets, chatpads or the Xbox Stereo Adapter.

    ·
    We recommend connecting only one controller at a time using Bluetooth.

    Xbox doesn't connect to my PC, missing controller driver in the device manager

    Hi JoJoMaster,

    Thank you for the update. You only need an adapter if you are trying to connect wireless without using Bluetooth. You don't need an adapter to connect via Bluetooth, however not all Xbox One controllers support Bluetooth. On Bluetooth-supported controllers,
    the plastic around the Xbox button is part of the face of the controller. On controllers without Bluetooth, the plastic around the Xbox button is part of the top, where the bumpers are. It's a little hard to tell from your picture due to the lighting if your
    controller supports Bluetooth, but upon closer inspection it looks like it may be the older model that doesn't support Bluetooth. It's hard to tell from the picture so I could be wrong. If it's the older model (no 3.5mm port and plastic around the Xbox button)
    then this is the reason your laptop doesn't pick up the controller.

    If you can confirm you have the controller model that supports Bluetooth, then follow

    "Connect and troubleshoot Bluetooth on your Xbox One Wireless Controller"
    for steps on how to get the controller connected.

    Let us know if you have any other questions.

    xbox one controller for pc, adapter or bluetooth?

    Hey GiddyCosine4817!

    As Geth mentioned, Bluetooth connection to a Windows 10 device will work just fine for Xbox One controllers, depending on the model of the controller. Certain older Xbox One controllers do not support Bluetooth connections.

    If you need help determining if your controller can connect via Bluetooth, check out the info under "Option 3" in our guide for
