Respawn has not shared the complete information on cross-play but it’s expected that console players will be able to opt-out of cross-play if they want to. The PC players however have a mouse and this may seem like an unfair challenge for console players. But it’s all up to their choice how they would manage. The key controls are properly described for both.
An EA engineer, not tied to Apex Legends directly, said “I wanted to clear something up about crossplay. You will only be in PC crossplay lobbies if you have a PC player on your team.” it means if there are two teams playing against each other and one team have a PC player, then the other team should also have a PC player.
