Riles posted on his official Twitter handle that iOS 16 supports Nintendo Switch controllers and they work perfectly with Delta. 

 

Later on, he also revealed that it also supports Joy-Cons both separately and together. If you add both of them, they will appear as a single MFi Controller to apps. 

If you want to switch from using both the Joy-Cons as a single controller to using one of them at a time or vice versa, you can do it by holding the screenshot and home buttons for a few seconds. 

 

You will be able to connect the controller and Joy-Cons by going to the iPhone's settings and then, to the Bluetooth section.

You can use both the Joy-Cons separately or together in iOS 16.
