Sony has finally brought remote play functionality to PlayStation 4 that would allow you to play PS4 games remotely on your iOS devices. The PlayStation maker company added the functionality with the release of 6.50 firmware update for the console.
To play games on your iPhone or iPad, you need to download the Remote Play app from the Apple App Store and then pair the app with your console.
Remote Play functionality already exists for PlayStation Vita, Windows, and Mac. There is also an Android version of the app but is available only for Sony Xperia devices, and the company is yet to release a version for other Android devices.
While the feature to connect PlayStation’s DualShock 4 controllers to Windows and Mac devices is present, there is no such option for iOS devices as of now. iOS users can use MFi controllers, but the gaming experience on it is not as smooth as DualShock controllers.
The Remote Play app offers a choice of quality settings for different connections. You can choose from 360p, 540p, 720p and 1080p resolutions. However, for streaming in 1080p, you’d require a PlayStation 4 Pro. Additionally, there are options to choose framerate as well.
With iOS app’s release, Android users are anxiously waiting for the company to release an app that would allow them to play PS4 games on the platform.
