PS4 firmware 6.50 is here, brings Remote Play to iOS

Once you download and open the app on your iOS device, you'll be presented with a big "Start" button in the middle of the screen. Other features of update 6.50 include 720p broadcasting when using Niconico Live. Both your iOS device and the PlayStation 4 will need to be connected the internet.

On Thursday, Sony dropped a new PS4 update (6.50) that while seemingly tiny, adds a huge feature mobile gamers have been craving.

The functionality in this iOS app seems pretty similar.

Though you will be able to remotely control your PS4, it's noted that this app may not be compatible with all games. Sony's latest update for the console makes PlayStation 4 remote play possible on iOS devices. Your iOS device mirrors your PS4 screen and you can control the console using the device. With this free app you can now enjoy PlayStation 4 games on the go from the comfort of your own iPhone or iPad. You can't pair a DualShock via Blueooth but some iPhone traditional MFi controllers are apparently compatible though. I played some of Persona 5 that way, just because that's the platform I want my Persona games on.

Sign in to PlayStation account - to access your games you will need to sign into your PlayStation Network account inside the app. The full changelog for this brand new system software update can be viewed below.

The feature allows swapping the "enter" button from the circle to the X. Unfortunately, this appears to be available only in certain specific countries.
