PS4 Remote Play app comes to iPhone, iPad

Posted March 08, 2019

Some complained that the Vita didn't have quite as many buttons needed to fully replicate a DualShock 4, and an iOS device is even more limited. We'll update soon on how well the Remote Play feature works on iOS, though first impressions so far from others in the office seem promising!

As you can see, the update also follows Nico Nico Live's recently-added 720p support and does something that some Japanese games enthusiasts will love.

Sony has usually released stability firmware updates in the past.

If you don't have any third-party controllers to help you manage the game, you'll find that the PlayStation 4's buttons are overlaid on the iPhone or iPad screen. You'll need to download an app from the App Store - simply named PS4 Remote Play - and you'll be able to use the feature on all your favourite Apple products.

For those who own both a Sony PlayStation 4 (PS4) and Xperia smartphone, the PS4 Remote Play app is likely something that you've made use of before. Its store page also notes that it is incompatible with the DualShock controller, so unless you have an iOS MFI controller you'll need to use the on-screen controller built into the app. You can not pair or play via a mobile network. You will need to be on a Wi-Fi network to use Remote Play or connect the MiFi controller.

Remote Play was already available on Android devices but for some dumb reason, it is still restricted to Sony Smartphones. The service is available only in certain countries and regions. This option is only available in specific countries and regions.
