It's currently downloading. Finally I can exchange O and X as accept and cancel and vice versa.

Remote play on iOS devices is now supported.

It's around 460MB.

I think we all need to accept at this point that the name change announcement was a figment of our collective imagination and didn't actually happen

Wait, what the fuck? Was the iOS remote play announced before? It's disappointing to hear that the DS4 is incompatible though :(

Speculative: this will help them prepare a PSNow iOS app. The cloud gaming division handles remote play apps IIRC.

Wait so how are you suppose to control games on your iPhone or iPad? Maybe the Switch Pro Controller can be paired?

Hey that's actually a great update! :D Small tip, it won't help with actual Remote Play but if you want to use this as Off-TV Play like the Wii U do this:

- Make a second user on your PS4
- Use the second user to connect via Remote Play
- Set the PS4 as a Primary System for the new, second user
- Use your DS4 controller like you normally would directly connected to your PS4 logged in as your normal user

That way you have no input delay and the Remote Play just works as if it were another screen.

No, it says in the store that shows it that you cannot use a dualshock 4. Instead shows touch overlay on iphone screen. :(
That's very interesting.

Of course controller pairing should be supported, and it would be nice if they got a DS4 to be pairable.

But offering a touch only overlay interface shows potentially how cloud streamed games could work on generic devices without access to a controller.

Mfi limitation cripples the remote play app. Sucks that Apple is so controlling of hardware.

huh, this app isnt too bad, like, dont play action games with it lol, but i really like playing persona 5 with it.

What is the app called on iOS? I can't find it, all I see is the R-play one
i opened one of the playstation music official apps and scrolled through their list of apps until i found.

App wasn't showing for me on the store but the first result is the second screen app, click on that then scroll down to see "More by Playstation Mobile Inc.", click "see all", then I see Remote Play.

Will games recognize the X/O swap or would it only work for system menu navigation?

General tips for RP:
- Don't use PS4 WiFi module for internet [it greatly caps the home wifi transfer speed for RP]
- Turn on 60fps game streaming [this reduces lag even in 30fps games]
- Test both PS4 Wifi and Router WiFi for home streaming, find the best one for you.

Still no shut down when download is complete in rest mode?
come on Sony even the ps3 had that.
My PS4 settles down in basic&quiet rest mode when downloads are complete [downloads turn on APU, HDD and cooling fan].
