Remote Play Brings PlayStation 4 Games To iOS

Remote Play Brings PlayStation 4 Games To iOS

All the game controls are laid on-screen which might make playing certain PS4 titles on the PS4 or iPad a very cramped experience.

Remote Play functionality isn't new for PlayStation 4.

A little while back, you may remember hearing that beta invites were being sent out for PlayStation 4 firmware update 6.50. Instead, you will have to use the on-screen controls or connect an MFI (Made for iOS) compatible game controller. The feature is now also available for iOS – iPhone and iPad – through a new app released by Sony.

Remote Play is a wonderful service from Sony that lets you stream your favorite PS4 games to another device.

Sony has just rolled out its PlayStation 4 Firmware Update 6.5 making it available for PlayStation consoles to now download. You can not pair or play via a mobile network.

To get started, iOS users need only download the PS4 Remote Play app from the Apple App Store.

Compatible iOS devices include the iPhone 7 or later, the sixth-generation iPad, and the second-generation iPad Pro or later. The full changelog for this brand new system software update can be viewed below.

Sources: Apple App Store and the official PlayStation site. You will need to be on a Wi-Fi network to use Remote Play or connect the MiFi controller.

You can now change the button assignment to perform "Enter" operations from thebutton to thebutton. If that qualifier applies to you, go to your PS4's Settings, then scroll down to System, and you'll find a toggle.
