Apple TV: JoyCons and Pro Nintendo Switch controller compatibility other new features

The new tvOS 16 operating system, which will arrive next fall, brings its share of new features for the Apple TV box.

Powering Apple TV HD and Apple TV 4K media boxes, the new tvOS 16 system arriving this fall brings new features, starting with compatibility with many additional Bluetooth and USB controllers.

Nintendo Switch controllers on Apple TV

In particular, you will now be able to use the JoyCons and the Pro controller of the Nintendo Switch console, knowing that the Xbox and PlayStation models are already compatible. Integration with applications from other Apple systems -iOS, iPad OS or WatchOS- will also be improved. For example, the biometric data collected by the Apple Watch can refine your sports sessions on Apple TV.

Management of multiple profiles on tvOS 16

Note also the possibility of adding a family member even more easily on Apple TV via the control center. Each person can thus access their profile and their own data on the Apple TV, Apple Music, Apple Arcade and other applications.
