How to use the PS4 controller with the « PS4 Remote Play » application on iPhone or iPad :

To be able to connect your PlayStation 4 to iOS, you will need to prepare a few things beforehand. First of all, you must check that your mobile is at least an iPhone 7, otherwise this will not be possible with our method. However, it should not be a problem if you do it on an iPad 6 or its successors.

In addition to your Dualshock 4 controller, you will need a PlayStation 4 (with your main account) on which you will need to create a secondary account if you do not already have one. It should also be noted that your console and mobile must be on the same network in order to be able to connect.

→ Step 1 : Prepare your iPhone or iPad !

To get started, you will need to first download the « PS4 Remote Play » application to your iOS device to connect your console. You can download it from the App Store.

Check the number of downloads, overall score and comments to avoid downloading the wrong application. Once you have done this, simply install PS4 Remote Play on your mobile and launch it.


→ Step 2 : Configure your PlayStation 4 :

As mentioned above, you will need 2 PSN accounts to connect your PlayStation 4 to your mobile. Go to the session selection screen and choose « New User », name the user with a nickname of your choice and open this new session.

Once this is done, you will need to connect to the PSN via your secondary account, if you do not have a secondary account, this could be a good opportunity for you to create a new one.

→ Step 3 : Connect your PlayStation 4 and your mobile phone with the application :

Go back to PS4 Remote Play now and log in to the secondary account you just created (not the main account, otherwise you won’t be able to use the controller). Once your details have been entered, your mobile will try to connect to your PlayStation 4, which may take a while.

Then, you will be asked to enter a code in the application to validate the connection, the code is obviously in your console. Go back to the PlayStation 4 and go to « Settings », then « Remote Play Connection Settings » and finally « Add Device », you will find an 8-digit code.

Type this code into the PS4 Remote Controller application and after a few moments, you can then use your mobile as a screen, but also as a controller to play your PlayStation 4 games.

→ Step 4 : Connect your Dualshock 4 controller :

If the previous steps were successful, your Dualshock 4 controller should now be turned off. Press the PS button on your controller and choose to assign it to your main account, the controller should then be recognized on your console, and therefore, on your mobile.

Now you know how to play PlayStation 4 on your tablet using a Dualshock 4 controller to enjoy the best playing conditions throughout your home. Have a good time!

You can now play PlayStation 4 games on your iPhone with Sony’s official PS4 Remote Play app! You’ve been able to stream games for years with the unofficial R-Play app, but we’re happy to see official support from Sony itself. And for free!

Just don’t get the impression that this is a replacement for your actual PS4. Yes, it lets you control games straight through your iPhone, but it’s essentially a streaming service that merely beams the games that are playing on your PS4 to your iPhone. The iPhone doesn’t host the games themselves as you might expect from a Nintendo Switch, so if you don’t have a stellar Wi-Fi signal, you’re gonna have a bad time.

But still! PS4 games on an iPhone! The possibilities are, well, limited! Because of the inevitable latency involved and issues with button mapping, Remote Play is best used for turn-based games or “walking simulators” rather than games demanding fast responses like Apex Legends. Even so, it’s a cool option to have and it costs nothing to set up if you want to try it out.

What do you need?

  • A PlayStation 4 running running Sony’s 6.50 firmware or higher. You’ll get the best quality with a PlayStation Pro
  • An iPhone running at least iOS 12.1
  • The PS4 Remote Play app installed from the App Store
  • (Optional) An MFi controller such as the Rotor Riot, the SteelSeries Nimbus, or the Gamevice

How to set up Remote Play between your PS4 and iPhone

Ps4 Ios Remote Play Not Working

  1. On your iPhone, install the PS4 Remote Play app from the App Store.
  2. Turn on your PS4 and log into the desired account. If you need to update your PS4 to the latest firmware, you can do so by scrolling to Settings on your PS4 and then selecting System Software Update.
  3. Make sure your iPhone and PS4 are on the same Wi-Fi network.
  4. Open the PS4 Remote Play app. Head to the Settings gear in the upper right and log in to your PlayStation Network account. Once you’ve done that, go back to the main screen and hit the big blue Start button. The app will look for your console.
  5. If it fails to connect (and it likely will if you’re you’re on an older PS4), you’ll see a prompt in the app asking for a code that will allow you connect the devices manually. On the PS4, go to Settings > Remote Play Connection Settings > Add Devices, where you’ll then see the code. You’ll have 300 seconds to enter the eight-digit code on your phone before it disappears.
  6. Tap the white space of the app to make the keypad go away, then click Register in the lower right.
  7. You’re in! You’ll immediately see an overlay resembling the buttons of a DualShock 4 controller. A brief tutorial shows how to use the digital thumbstick buttons. You can use Remote Play in either landscape mode or portrait mode. Your fingers don’t obscure the screen in portrait mode, but the streamed screen itself is much smaller.
  8. If you want Remote Play to connect to the PS4 even when it’s in rest mode, go to Settings > Power Save Settings > Set Features Available in Rest Mode and then hit Enable Turning on PS4 from Network.
  9. To quit using Remote Play, simply leave the app. Since you’ll lose a connection every time you leave the app, you’ll need to hit Start to reconnect every time. Fortunately, it’ll be easier on future attempts.

Optional (but not really): Connect an MFi controller

You can’t use a Sony DualShock 4 controller with your iPhone, but MFi (made for iPhone) controllers like the Rotor Riot, the SteelSeries Nimbus, or the Gamevice make for decent alternatives. It’s usually very easy to hook one up, as I demonstrate here. Once you’ve paired an MFi controller, the digital DualShock 4 button overlay in the Remote Play app should automatically disappear.

Keep in mind that the button schemes for MFi controllers don’t always perfectly align with those on the DualShock 4. On the Gamevice, for example, you can’t press down on either of the two thumbsticks (usually known as the L3 and R3 buttons). That means you won’t be able to use either the sprint or the enemy lock-on in God of War, which makes gameplay unnecessarily difficult. The Rotor Riot is reportedly the only controller that supports L3 and R3, but I haven’t had a chance to try it out.

You’ll also have latency issues when using an MFi controller, much as you will with using Remote Play in general. This means that Remote Play isn’t ideal for games requiring rapid reaction times. You wouldn’t want it for playing Apex Legends, in other words, but it’s fine for turn-based games or lightly interactive games like Persona 5.

Things to keep in mind

Ps4 Remote App Ios

  • If your Wi-Fi isn’t strong enough to support the stream, you can adjust the video quality in the Remote Play app’s settings (accessible only from the screen where you click Start when you open it). You can choose between four settings, although the best two—720p and 1080p—are only available if you’re using the PlayStation 4 Pro.
  • You will lose connection to the game you’re playing every time you leave the PS4 Remote Play on your app.
  • PS4 Remote Play will drop its connection if you interact with the physical DualShock 4 on your PS4.
  • PS4 Remote Play will drop its connection if you turn off your PS4.
  • The PS4 and the iPhone running PS4 Remote Play need to be on the same Wi-Fi network. Playing over LTE doesn’t work.
  • You can’t use a Sony DualShock 4 with the PlayStation 4. It’d make all this easier if you could, but I don’t make the rules.
