Sony has finally added PS5 DualSense support for Remote Play on iOS
Plus performance improvements for iOS app
Sony has updated its Remote Play app for iOS to support PS5’s DualSense controller.
The app’s 4.0.0 update was released on Monday, adding support for the wireless controller along with various performance improvements, according to its patch notes.
DualSense support is limited to devices with iOS14.5/iPadOS 14.5 installed, and users can pair their controllers by holding down the Create and PS buttons and then selecting it from the iOS Bluetooth menu.
Users have been able to connect the Remote Play app to PS5 since its November launch, but controls have been limited to either DualShock 4 or touch screen commands.
Sony revamped the existing PS4 Remote Play app on mobile, PC and Mac last year, changing its name to PS Remote Play and adding the option to connect to PS5 when it launched.
Remote Play allows PlayStation users to stream games from their consoles at upto 1080p / 60fps.
The feature even allows users to stream PS5 content to their last-gen PS4 console, enabling them to play in a separate room or location. Unfortunately, PS5 Remote Play does not work via the PS Vita.
In order to connect a PS4 console to a PS5, players must enable the Remote Play feature from the newer console’s system menu, then either discover it automatically via wi-fi or manually enter a generated code.
One unique function the app enables is the ability for players to play PS5 games such as Astro’s Playroom with a DualShock 4 controller, something that the PS5 console itself does not allow.
