Frequently Asked Questions

While it’s ultimately up to developers to determine how best to leverage the technical capabilities of the two consoles, players typically see resolution as the key difference between Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S.
You definitely can. Xbox Series X|S supports remote play with the Xbox app, which is currently available on iOS and Android phones and tablets.
A 2-meter (6.56 feet) HDMI 2.1 cable is included with all new purchases of the Xbox Series X. The Xbox Series S comes with a HDMI 2.0 cable of the same length.
You can transfer your games from another Xbox device via an existing USB 3.1+ external hard drive to use on Xbox Series X|S. You can play Xbox One, Xbox 360, and original Xbox games directly from the external USB HDD.
You can use the network transfer function as follows:
1.) Press the Xbox button to open the guide, and then go to Profile & system > Settings > System > Backup & transfer > Network transfer.
2.) Enable the Network transfer for your current and your new Xbox Series X|S to be able to use the feature.
Note- Games optimized for Xbox Series X|S need to be played from the Xbox Series X|S internal SSD or the Storage Expansion Card.
As with all electronics, Xbox Series X|S consoles expel any heat generated during use. And designed the Parallel Cooling Architecture. If you detect some warm air emanating from the exhaust ports, this indicates that the system is working as intended and in line with our expectations.
To ensure your device is achieving optimal airflow, we recommend placing the unit in an open area without any obstructions to the top and back inlets and outlets. If you want to place the device in the entertainment set, then place it in an unrestricted space. Do not place it behind a closed door if possible.
For a standard, non-enclosed media entertainment stand, ensure at least 1.5 inches (approximately 4 cm) of clearance from the top of the console in either vertical or horizontal alignment. We recommend having 4-6 inches (approximately 10-15 cm) of clearance on all sides.
