Sony announced that the DualSense controller for PlayStation 5 can now be used with iPhone models, iPad models, iPod touch models, and Apple TV to play PS5 or PS4 games remotely.
The PS Remote Play app allows PS5 or PS4 owners to play remotely on Windows, Mac, iOS, Android, or PS4; however, this feature is limited to the PlayStation 4 DualShock 4 controller. Now, if gamers are using the latest version of the operating system, they can use the DualSense controller to play remotely on their Apple devices.
Sony shared via a post on their PlayStation support page that the DualSense controller is now compatible with Apple devices and you can use the following devices to connect to Bluetooth. iPhone, iPad, iPod touch models running iOS 14.5 and later, as well as Mac machines running macOS Big Sur 11.3 or later, can connect to the DualSense controller via Bluetooth.
This will allow users to use the DualSense controller on their mobile devices to play PlayStation 5 or PlayStation 4 games through the PS Remote Play app.
To connect the DualSense controller with an Apple device, follow these steps:
Activate pairing mode on the controller, press and hold the Create button, and then press and hold the PS button until the light bar flashes. The DualSense controller should appear in the list of nearby Bluetooth devices. Select the controller and the light bar on DualSense will blink.
The player indicator will light up. You can now use the DualSense controller to play compatible games through the PS Remote Play app. It can also be used to play games that support MFi controllers (a controller approved by Apple for use on iOS devices).
The DualSense controller can only be paired with one device at a time and must be paired with each new device.
