A new system software update for PlayStation 4 is out now, bringing the version number up to 6.50 and doing a whole lot more than just making it a bit more stable or laying the foundations for future games. This update adds support for iOS Remote Play, coming alongside a new ‘PS4 Remote Play’ app that you can download from iTunes.
The app requires iOS 12.1, with iPhone 7, 6th generation iPad and 2nd generation iPad Pro recommended, and you need a good internet connection over wi-fi for it to work. Sony note that it may not be compatible with some games and that you cannot use a DualShock 4 controller with the app, likely down to it not having system-level support.
Outside of this there are two more smaller changes:
- You can now choose 720p when you broadcast using Niconico Live. This service is only available in certain countries and regions.
- You can now change the button assignment to perform “Enter” operations from the (circle) button to the (cross) button.
Select (Settings) > [System] and then select the checkbox for [Use (cross) Button for Enter]. This option is only available for specific countries and regions.
