Xbox controller for Xbox Cloud Gaming

Hi guys

I received an invite to join the beta of Xbox Cloud Gaming today, and I’m going to give it a go over the bank holiday weekend. Will this Xbox controller work on an iPad as well as PC? If so, I’ll order it straight away as it seems to be on sale.

    <p>there are two kinds of xbox controllers, with and without bluetooth. Only the bluetooth one will work with an ipad. It's unclear from the picture if that's a bluetooth controller or not and it doesn't mention it in the description. I would ask the vendor or be prepared to send it back in case it's not</p>

      <blockquote><em><a href="#625725">In reply to Vladimir:</a></em></blockquote><p>I'm pretty sure every controller with the share button (all the new controllers have that) also have Bluetooth.</p>

    <p>I took a punt. It arrived today and it does indeed pair with both the Windows PC and my iPad.</p>

    <p>Is there a way to have it remember a bluetooth connection and an Xbox, or do you need to re-pair everytime you go from mobile to console? </p>
