iOS 15 Lets You Seize the Final 15 Seconds of Gameplay with a Sport Controller to Spotlight Fascinating Moments like Boss Fights – TouchArcade
Following Apple’s on-line WWDC 2021 keynote, the corporate has began importing numerous developer movies and labs for everybody to look at and contemplating we had Divinity Authentic Sin 2 for iPad revealed in one in every of these at WWDC earlier than, I used to be curious to see what this yr’s gaming-related movies would have. Apple’s ‘Faucet into digital and bodily sport controllers’ video from Nat Brown (Sport Applied sciences Engineering at Apple) has been glorious to look at. Nat goes over particulars on how builders can adapt their interfaces to every controller’s icons and the way including controller assist helps generally. The highlights for me on this video are in the direction of the tip the place he mentions one new seize function coming in iOS 15 after which with how builders can use Sony’s DualSense controller adaptive triggers. Past that, I’m hoping extra builders look into supporting each Xbox and PlayStation button prompts since I personal controllers from each platforms. That is additionally addressed within the video which is price watching in case you play on iOS and iPadOS with a controller.
The brand new seize function is that iOS 15 will let gamers customise how the share or create button works on newer controllers (and I assume the DualShock 4 controller) to seize the final 15 seconds of gameplay versus solely utilizing it to start display recording. It is a nice change as a result of it allows you to seize gameplay moments that simply occurred on the fly. Proper now on iOS 14.5, you possibly can solely seize a screenshot or start display recording and finish it. Having one thing like this in iOS 15 is nice for capturing hilarious moments as a substitute of initiating a recording after which attempting to do one thing. Barring that, the ending of the WWDC video linked above additionally contains how builders can use the DualSense adaptive triggers in video games. Barring these two issues, Nat additionally spoke about how controller assist is one thing Apple seems for with spotlight video games and the way clients love seeing controller assist.
