Sony decided to release a PS4 remote play app for iOS, which means the days of questionable remote play are over! 4,5 years after being launched on Android and other platforms, PS4 remote play is now available on iPhones and iPads with the PS4 6.50 update. It’s quite strange that it took so long for Sony to finally release it on iOS, but better late than never, isn't it?
In order to play, you need to have: iPhone or iPad, a stable Internet connection (WiFi is good to go), remote play device, and, of course, your favorite PS4 game. All users have to download PS4 Remote play app and then connect consoles via WiFi or manually. The app will display your PS4 home screen and give the full access to your game library. Previously, iOS users were desperate to stream their games using third-party apps such as R-Play for the price of $12. The new app is totally free and available at App Store.
As with the other platforms, the idea of the remote play application for iOS is to let you enjoy favorite games “on-the-go” on your mobile device, using on-screen overlay buttons. Unfortunately, Sony confirmed that you cannot use Dualshock PS4 Controllers that come with the console. Instead, users may consider a third-party option.
It’s a good start for iPhone. However, lacking access to the Dualshock makes Android and Mac and other platforms better options, at least at this stage.
