The Remote Play option was first released to PlayStation Vita Players back in 2013 and then later released for Mac and Window users in 2016. It's been a long time coming, but finally, the feature has made its way to iOS.
If you are pumped about the chance to carry your favorite PS4 games around in your pocket, we've put together a guide for how to download and set up the Remote Play feature on your iPhone or iPad.

How Does PS4 Remote Play Work? Controls and Features
PS4 Remote Play has the following features for iOS:
- Displays the PS4 screen on your mobile device.

- Allows players to join voice chats using the mic on their mobile device.

Do MiFi Controllers Work with PS4 Remote Play on iOS?
One downside to playing using PS4 Remote Play on an iOS device is trying to fit controls within the screen. The controls lay right on top of the graphics and can make it difficult to play some games. Fortunately there are a few controllers you can use to remedy the issue.
Sony's DualShock 4 controller is not compatible with Remote Play, but according to Redditors, MiFi controllers do work. You will need to be on a Wi-Fi network to use Remote Play or connect the MiFi controller. Here are two controllers users have reported as working with Remote Play.
- Steelseries Nimbus
- Rotor Riot Wired Video Game & Drone Controller
Download Game Offline
It's important to note that these controllers may lack R3 and L3 control which could be problematic when playing some games.
Is PS4 Remote Play Coming to Android?
Though an Android version of the Remote Play app was created several years ago for exclusive use with Sony's Experia phones, there is no current information on if or when the feature may become available for Android users.
Other Changes in PS4 6.50 Update
Besides the Remote Play feature, the PS4 6.50 update also brings a couple of extra changes.
- 720p Streaming for Broadcasts - You can now choose 720p when you broadcast using Niconico Live. This service is available only in certain countries and regions.
- Change Button Assignments - You can now change the button assignment to perform “Enter” operations from the Circle button to the X button.
- Select (Settings) > [System], and then select the checkbox for [Use X Button for Enter]. This option is available only for specific countries and regions.

Temper your expectations, but I’m impressed
I’m shocked I’m saying this, but this app is actually kind of amazing—as long as you keep your expectations in check. I’ve been playing Persona 5 remotely with it (over the internet, not LAN), and it’s been working really well. Now, there are occasional frame rate hiccups and latency issues, and the onscreen controls are only serviceable at best, but that’s totally fine for a slower paced game like Persona. If you expect to play fast paced games remotely where tight controls and fast reaction times are important, you’re going to have a bad time. It might work OK over LAN, but it’s still not going to be great. But for certain slower games, it works nearly perfectly.
A few details about my setup: I was not able to get the automatic remote setup working with my router configuration. I had to look at R-Play’s help docs for opening the right router ports to get everything working, but if you’re reasonably capable at futzing with router settings, you shouldn’t have any issues. My PS4 is connected to my router with an ethernet cable, and my home internet speeds are 60Mbps down and 6Mbps up.
PS Vita Replacement, no. Capable remote play??
Playing Ps4 On Pc
Alright, so back in June my original PS Vita decided that it wasn't meant for this world. The screen broke and so ended my remote play sessions. So looking for alternatives to replacing my PS Vita I did a search for apps capable of making my phone respond like a Vita in remote play. All I see are four and five star reviews, and here I'm thinking I hit the jackpot. Reading up on all the ways this app integrates into your phone and connects to your Playstation 4, this is sure to be a rock solid investment for $12 plus tax.
Wrong, wrong, I couldn't be more wrong. This app is clumsy at best, and certainly isn't responsive to commands. Only half of the available game library even appears on my phone screen. Then the on screen touch buttons don't work simultaneously. You can't for example input the command for a quarter circle motion forward. The touch command doesn't recognize simultaneous response. I was very disappointed. I tried this multiple times and tried various games to no success.
I award this app the appropriate 1 out of 5 stars, and it receives only one star in this review, because it doesn't manage to boot up and sync with your Playstation console, but that's about all it does. Biggest waste of $12, just put it towards a replacement Vita pre-owned at GameStop, just like I did tonight. ✌🏻
This is a great app that works very very well! There is only a little minor lag if you leave the app running for multiple hours. The app even allows you to customize the on screen controls to whatever size you need them and where you want them! The graphics are even the same high quality on your iOS device as on you PS4! Also another GREAT thing is that you can use your DualShock 4 controller with this app as well as long as you have a second PSN account and follow the apps instructions! My only complaints are, first that the on screen controls are not that good, and second that the mifi controllers are pretty expensive and those are the only ones compatible with this app, and finally to be able to play you PS4 as a Nintendo switch away from home, you need to change some of your router settings and PS4 network settings, which for me a 13 year old is kind of crazy because it takes a lot of knowledge that most 13 year olds don’t have!
Requires iOS 10.0 or later. Compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.
