    Xbox Elite Wireless Controller Series 2 Issues (works wired but not over bluetooth)


    Looks to be a common issue according to Reddit.

    Whenever I unplug my controller it stops working.

    The first step to even get it to recognize the device after being unplugged is to go into bluetooth devices, find the Xbox Elite Wireless Controller, select "remove device", then enter pairing mode on the controller, "add a bluetooth or other device" then select the top option to pair a bluetooth device. Any time I plug my controller in and then unplug it I have to go through these steps first to get it to function at all.

    THEN it is still unusable.

    IF Xbox bar is ON and "Open Xbox Game Bar using this button on a controller: (Xbox button)" is CHECKED: Both "A" and "(Xbox button)" will open the game bar overlay while in a game.

    IF Xbox bar is ON and "Open Xbox Game Bar using this button on a controller: (Xbox button)" is NOT - CHECKED: The overlay will no longer open with either button, but the "A" button will often take a screenshot through Steam (even if the screenshot shorcut button in steam is set to "none". It also causes my entire system to stutter.

    IF Xbox bar is OFF: The overlay will no longer open with either button, but the "A" button will often take a screenshot through Steam (even if the screenshot shorcut button in steam is set to "none". It also causes my entire system to stutter.

    :)

    Xbox Elite wireless controller series 2 bluetooth problem!

    Hi,

    I try to connect my Xbox Elite wireless controller series 2 via bluetooth on my Ipad Pro 11 inch 2018, but it can't make connection or won't be recognized. The series 2 controller supports bluetooth. I can make connection with the other older version Xbox
    One S wireless controller immediately.

    I'd make a phone call with Apple support and they said that maybe the problem could be that the Xbox Elite controller series 2 won't be supported and isn't compatible with Ipad.

    I want to know guys if you had the same problem and I want to ask if there will be an update in the future to solve this problem?
    At the moment the series 2 elite controller is not compatible with Iphones/Ipads. At the moment the only device that the series 2 controller is available on IOS side is the Mac and even that it's janky. Series 2 controller works fine on Android at the moment.
    Sorry if this doesn't help you, I myself is waiting for the Bluetooth proprietary to be added to the IOS list

    Xbox Elite Wireless Controller Series 2 Issues (works wired but not over bluetooth)

    Hi there Jayson welcome to the community forum! Christopher here, an Xbox fan just like you and has been on Xbox for years already. I would really love to make your day by helping you out. I suggest uninstalling the accessories app completely! Everytime that it tried to give me a hard time I do this and it works wonders! Here are the steps!
