New PlayStation 4 Update Means You Can Play Remotely On Your Mobile

08 March 2019

The major new feature is remote play for iOS devices. You can play in landscape or portrait mode, though it appears you are limited to on-screen controls and can't use a DualShock 4 with it. Well, no more! Today, the PlayStation 4 gets its 6.50 firmware update, which finally opens the gates for iOS users. Unfortunately, Apple's mobile devices don't natively support the DualShock 4, so you're going to need to pick up a third-party MFi controller - like the SteelSeries Nimbus - to play games the way they were meant to be played. The feature is now also available for iOS – iPhone and iPad – through a new app released by Sony.

The notes for the PS4 Remote Play app state that it may not be compatible with all PlayStation 4 titles.

With the apps, users can access their PS4 over Wi-Fi with an iPhone or iPad running iOS 12.1 or later. You can not pair or play via a mobile network. Go to [Settings] [Remote Play Connection Settings] [Add Device], and then enter the code provided on the Remote Play App. This can be done by downloading the PS4 Remote Play app on your iOS phone or tablet, and it works in a similar way to how it does on the Vita.

Pakistan prepares to return Indian air force pilot as confrontation cools

Sources: Apple App Store and the official PlayStation site. "This can make things tricky when playing on an iOS device with a smaller screen, so the Remote Play app is best used on iPad, or at least iPhone Xs (with it's 6.5" display). The service is available only in certain countries and regions.

There's also a new option to reassign the buttons to perform the enter operation.
