People with iPhones and iPads are finally able to use PS4 Remote Play thanks to the latest PlayStation 4 update that dropped on Thursday.
PS4 Remote Play, which first debuted in October 2014, allows PS4 owners to control their consoles with their smartphones and tablets, connect to voice chat, and input text with their device’s keyboard. The free app is now available to download on iTunes for the first time.
It’s a pretty handy little app for doing pretty much anything on the console that isn’t gaming, and is also decent for gaming if touch controls are your thing. While the DualShock 4 controller’s touchpad is helpful for inputting text on PS4, it’s hard to beat an actual digital keyboard.
To use PS4 Remote Play on iOS, you need to have a PlayStation Network account, a wifi connection (no data, sorry), and either an iPhone 7 or newer, a sixth generation iPad or newer, or a second generation iPad Pro or newer.
Unfortunately if you’re interested in playing a game on your iOS device with a controller, there’s no support for the DualShock 4 on iOS. Hopefully that will change in the future.
