Installing the iOS 13 beta to play with the Playstation 4 Dualshock controller

iOS 13 is not released yet. At the time that we're writing this post, there's only a developer beta, which is not recommended to install on consumer devices, additionally you'll need a paid Apple Developer account to use it on your device. If you are the impatient type, you are probably better off waiting for the iOS public beta, which will release in July of 2019. If you want to play it safe, wait for the official iOS 13 release which will be in September of 2019.

Is there any way you can test if the Steel Series Stratus Duo works? Its viewed as an XBOX ONE S controller so it should work.

I also think that it should work! I have no way of testing this right now, unfortunately. I would, hover, totally appreciate if, you posted here again, once you find out something on this :)
