PS4 Remote Play arrives on iOS devices today

Official remote play support for the iOS devices has finally launched with today's PS4 firmware update, bringing a large amount of new supported devices that you can use to stream your PS4 games.

It's pretty easy to setup and just requires fans to enable it on their PS4 via the settings page and also to think about whether to use their Dualshock Controller as a Bluetooth device. Users will also be able to join voice chats using the microphone on their iOS device. Youll also be able to use an iOS device for keyboard input.

Another big limitation is that you can not pair the PS4 Dualshock controller to iPhone/iPad. Your PS4 controller will be deactivated following the start of Remote Play; turn it back on with the PS button, as normal.

With the apps, users can access their PS4 over Wi-Fi with an iPhone or iPad running iOS 12.1 or later. In this guide, we'll outline how you can use your DualShock 4 to operate Remote Play on your Apple product.

If your PS4 can not be found automatically, you will need to manually register the iOS device.
