PS4 Firmware Update 6.50 Released, Adds Remote Play for iOS Devices

Remote Play functionality isn't new for PlayStation 4.

You can now choose 720p when you broadcast Niconico Live.

You can now play PlayStation 4 games on your iOS device. You only need to go to your PlayStation 4 and update its software and then download the Remote Play app to your iPhone. Also, DUALSHOCK 4 controllers aren't supported, and the app it can't be used with mobile data.

Sony hasn't provided an exhaustive list of every game which is compatible, simply stating that you can play "your favorite PS4 games".

We get a neat surprise in the form of remote play on iOS smartphones and tablets.

Sony has released PS4 firmware update version 6.50 today.

Remote Play allows you to play PS4 games over WiFi, by displaying the gameplay on our iPhone or iPad, and using the on-screen touch controls to navigate the system. You can't pair a DualShock via Blueooth but some iPhone traditional MFi controllers are apparently compatible though. But not anymore; more than four years after its initial debut, Remote Play has finally graced iOS.

You can't use Remote Play over a cellular connection, so you'll need to be connected to Wi-Fi - preferably the same network as your PS4 if possible.

There's also a new option to reassign the buttons to perform the enter operation. In truth, Sony may never expand remote play support to other devices and keep it as a selling point for Xperia phones, but hopefully this iOS launch means expanded Android support is on the way.
