    Help with using an Xbox controller to play games

    I am trying to use an Xbox controller to play gamepad-supported games. My Xbox One controller pairs, connects, and controls games perfectly. However, while my Xbox Series X controller pairs and connects, it does nothing in the same exact games. Why would this be?

    Will getting a new model iPad fix this issue?

    I am currently using an iPad Air 2, which was apparently released in 2014 so it's 6+ years old. The issue I am running into is apps have to re-load any time I switch between them. For example, I have one game open. I minimize that game and switch to a different game. When I return to the first...

    When is the best (or a good) time to buy an iPad?

    I'm going to need a new iPad by early November of this year, which unfortunately means I can't wait until Black Friday. It doesn't have to be the latest model, but I do want a new one as opposed to a used or refurbished one. Is there any time between now and the beginning of November when...

    Is it possible that my iPad got infected with something?

    I'll try to sum this up as quickly as I can. Earlier this year, I had fraudulent activity on my credit card. So I got a replacement card with a new number, but the activity continued. So I completely closed my account with that bank because I didn't know what else to do. I got a new card...

    Will doing a factory restore fix any lag problems I am having?

    For the past few months, my iPad 2nd Gen has been suffering from severe lag while playing games. And these aren't even very demanding games either. I've tried doing a hard reset to see if that fixes the problem, but it only fixes it temporarily, then the problem comes back again. If I do a...

    Recent severe lag on my iPad 2

    For the past few weeks, I've had increasing lag on my iPad 2. I can't think of any recent changes on it that would cause this problem. It's running 7.1.2, but I upgraded to that version a long time before the problems started. And I take good care of it so I don't think it's damaged. Would...

    Downloads/Updates downloading very slowly?

    Ever since the store re-opened after the holidays, my downloads and updates have been going extremely slowly. What used to take a few seconds to download, now takes several minutes.

    Is it possible that my apps updated automatically?
