Does Genshin Impact have iOS controller support?

An easier way to play.

Genshin Impact is a full-scale open-world RPG that you can play on PC, PlayStation, or your mobile device. Of course, playing on mobile can have its downsides, as the game is much easier to control on PC and console. This probably has you wondering if it's possible to use a controller with Genshin Impact on iOS.

Yes, you can use a controller with Genshin Impact on iOS devices. Interestingly enough, you can play the game with both a PlayStation 4 controller and an Xbox One controller since both use Bluetooth to connect. You can also look into the Razer Kishi if you want a good mobile controller.

I start my day by exploring Teyvat in Genshin Impact and end it after reorganizing my apartment in Final Fantasy XIV. I am a diehard fan of N64 era games and will forever feel betrayed that Megaman Legends didn't finish. Outside of gaming, I have spend my time collecting manga, collecting anime figures, and watching anime with my naked cat.
