The wording states that the player must be on iOS version 14 or higher. And the PlayStation 5’s DualSense controller will not be supported as of now. The article also states “partial support” for iOS-Bluetooth controllers which means it will support a good number of controllers. But on a sure note, Xbox Wireless Controller or a DualShock 4 controllers would work perfectly.
