  3. If you’re using an iPhone, go to Settings > Bluetooth. After a little time, an Xbox Wireless Controller option will appear on your list of Other Devices – tap it to connect and pair. 

If you’re pairing an Xbox Controller to an Android phone, swipe down on the screen to pull up your notifications and settings.
