Remote Play on iOS doesn’t allow users to pair a PlayStation 4 gamepad with the smartphone or tablet they’re playing on. Instead, users must use the overlaid virtual buttons.

Through the iOS app, PlayStation 4 Remote Play users have full access to their entire PlayStation 4 console, not just games.

To use Remote Play through your iOS device with your PlayStation 4, you’ll need to do two things:

  1. Update your PlayStation 4 to firmware 6.50, which is available now. Here are the instructions for updating your PS4.
  2. Download the iOS app, which you can find on the App Store here.

After doing those two things, turn on your PlayStation 4 and open the app, then follow the instructions.
