iPads and Macs with USB-C ports can use a wired connection to a compatible 8BitDo controller, but otherwise Bluetooth connections are available. Up to four controllers can be connected at one time depending on device, and unfortunately, rumble and motion control functions are not supported.
Controllers will need a firmware update to work with Apple devices, with the firmware updating software available through the 8BitDo website.
