PS4 Remote Play on iOS available thanks to update 6.50


Have fun using the controller, though...

PS4 Remote Play on iOS is now possible thanks to PS4 firmware update 6.50 and a new app.

The app, available here, is called PS4 Remote Play and uses WiFi to make your iOS-powered iPhone or iPad a remote screen. Virtual controller buttons are positioned on your device’s screen, and should your device support it, haptic feedback triggers with button presses.

To use the app, you’ll need to login with your PlayStation Network ID; you’ll also need to ensure your PS4 is on or in rest mode and can be woken up from rest mode remotely.

If you’re within range of your PS4, you can use a DualShock 4 controller rather than the on-screen virtual controller.

The 6.50 update also lets players choose to stream in 720p on Niconico and allows those in specific countries the ability to swap the X and O buttons on their controller.

Will you make use of the Remote Play feature? Why or why not?
