Sony Brings PS4 Remote Play To iPhone
Sony’s latest PlayStation 4 OS update allows the console to sync with iOS devices, enabling iPhone and iPad users to stream games via the PS4 Remote Play app.
Announced in 2013, Remote Play allowed gamers to stream PS4 games to a handheld PlayStation Vita — the now discontinued device.
It was expanded to Windows and Macs and was first launched for Xperia phones in October 2014. Broader Android access to the app is still forthcoming.
To access the latest update, users simply need to update their PS4, download the Remote Play app to their device and pair it to their console.
Like many mobile games, on-screen controls are overlaid onto the screen.
To get the most out of mobile gaming, a third party controller may be the way to go, as unfortunately, the DualShock 4 controller will not connect to an iPhone.
Compatible games can be played over Wi-Fi only, Remote Play will not work over a mobile network.
Users will need an iPhone 7 or sixth-generation iPad to use the PS4 Remote Play app for iOS. Available in the App Store now.
