XIM does not support PC as a gaming platform but some players have been able to use XIM in their PC game by using a Microsoft wireless Xbox One controller with their XIM. Third party controllers are not supported.

With that said you may encounter performance issues using XIM on a PC due to the possibility of PC game look mechanics being different from their console versions. Using APEX at 1000hz on PC may cause performance issues as well. Using APEX at 125hz on PC may be required.

The new XS controllers may need a firmware update. This can be done using the PC Xbox Accessories app or an Xbox.

it may help to update the controller firmware while APEX is not connected. There have been a few controller updates since the console has launched.

Check if the controller works without XIM in your PC game. If it's working then your cable should be fine. There have been at least 3 controller firmware updates so I recommend updating it's firmware while XIM is unplugged either way.
