I connected a gamepad to my iPhone, but I don’t like the controls in some games. How can I remap the joystick buttons?

First, make sure that the joystick is officially supported by the system. Only in this case, the control keys can be configured for the gamepad.

Officially, the following joysticks can be connected to the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch with the latest versions of the mobile operating system:

▸ Xbox Wireless Controller (model 1708);
▸ Xbox Elite Wireless Controller Series 2 ;
▸ Xbox Adaptive Controller ;
▸ PlayStation DualShock 4 Wireless Controller ;

In addition, most MFI controllers are supported. For detailed compatibility information, please visit the gamepad manufacturer’s website.

How to set up a joystick in iOS 14 and iPadOS 14

After connecting the controller to your iPhone and iPad, follow these steps to set it up:

1. Go to Settings – General – Gamepad (Joystick).

2. Select the connected device.           

3. In the appropriate section of the settings, activate the button change and swap the control keys on the gamepad.

In the same section there will be menu items for all applications on the smartphone that support the gamepad. So you can reconfigure the controls in each game individually, and not change the meaning of the buttons for all applications at once.
