Users are reporting issues with game controllers after the macOS Monterey 12.3 update, with some unable to use Xbox, Playstation, DualSense, or third-party controllers.
Apple updated macOS Monterey to version 12.3 on March 14, and since then a number of users have reported issues with the game controller. However, the update has not affected all users.
There are multiple reports on the Apple Developer Forums, as well as Reddit, with users telling varying degrees of problems. One says no Apple Arcade games work with the controllers, but others that don’t rely on Apple’s GameController framework have at least limited functionality.
“My DualSense controller does nothing when paired via Bluetooth after updating,” writes Reddit user cultoftheilluminai. “The web APIs seem to work fine, my controller works fine when testing for example at https://gamepad-tester.com/. It seems that the lower level macOS APIs are not working.”
There doesn’t seem to be any consistency yet, with some users suggesting that another source of the problem may be in the Bluetooth connection to the Mac.
Apple has not yet commented publicly. The problem was noticed by MacRumors.
