iOS Input Lag

I’ve got a pretty stable connection up to 200-250mbps (supposed to be 300mbps, but you know how ISPs love to throttle your internet) and I’m already connected to the 5.0 version of my WiFi and I’m receiving input lag. Normally this wouldn’t be an issue and really isn’t all that big a deal, but when playing more precision games like Dark Souls it often gets me killed. Are there settings I need to change in order to fix the input lag or is the current iOS version not capable of that yet?

Really appreciate your help in advance.

Does the issue continue to happen if you get closer to your router?

If it is not a general connection issue then do the following on ios 13.x (if on ios 14 beta you’ll have to restore to 13.x)
 

Go to settings, bluetooth and remove the controller. 
 

Restart your ios device, turn on controller and pair it again.

I’ve tried standing right next to my router. It’s easily accessible to me. The stream itself runs beautifully, but the inputs are delayed. Tried my LTE Data also with same results.

I’ve tried that many times, unfortunately this doesn’t provide any results for me.
