PS4 Remote Play Comes to iOS Devices

Apple iPS4

PlayStation users can finally utilize Sony’s remote play function on their iOS devices.

Remote play allows users to access their PS4 on a separate device while the PlayStation system itself continues to operate independently. This allows you to play your favorite games on your iPhone, Vita, Android device, or computer while your family or friends continue to watch a show on the system itself.

You can only access this remote play feature on the same Wi-Fi network as the PS4 system you’re connecting to, which means you won’t be able to play your favorite games on your phone while connected to a mobile network. That said, this feature is still an incredibly convenient one for users who want to share their console at home.

It’s worth noting that you can’t connect a Dualshock 4 controller to your iPhone or iPad while using the app. Furthermore, users exploiting the famous “game share” technique won’t be able to successfully use the app, as it will attempt to pair with your primary PS4.

This new feature requires the PS4 system version 6.5.0 to work, and you’ll need an iPhone 7 (or 6th-generation iPad) or newer to run the app. If you’re ready to get started using this cool new tool, download it for free from the App Store here.

Hello there! The name's Ryan, and I graduated from Oregon State University in June 2018 with a major in Political Science and a minor in US History. Throughout my life I’ve been a huge fan of sports, movies, tv shows, and, above all else, video games. My favorite games of all time are the original Mass Effect Trilogy, and, in more recent years, I’ve loved God of War, Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age, Doom, and the Witcher 3.

Have your say!
