Sony has released a brand new update for the PS4.

A little while back, you may remember hearing that beta invites were being sent out for PlayStation 4 firmware update 6.50.

Sadly, Sony hasn't made a DualShock controller for iPhones, so you're stuck with third-party products for now (unless, again, you go the unofficial route).

The PS4 Remote Play app will connect with your PS4 for your on your iOS device.

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

China blocks some Canada canola shipments, Ottawa expresses concern
China relies on Canada to supply more than 90 percent of its imports of canola, used for cooking and as feed for animals and fish. A Chinese court also sentenced a Canadian to death in a sudden retrial, overturning a 15-year prison term handed down earlier.

Remote Play - which lets players use a mobile device to control their PS4 console - has been a long time coming for iOS users.

PS4 update 6.50 is now available to download. You can not pair or play via a mobile network.

Players can use the app to display their PlayStation 4's screen on their iOS device, use their device as a controller, join voice chats, and enter text using the device's keyboard.

Sources: Apple App Store and the official PlayStation site. I played some of Persona 5 that way, just because that's the platform I want my Persona games on.

The PS4 6.50 update allows changing button assignments on DualShock 4 controller.

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.

Remote Play was already available on Android devices but for some dumb reason, it is still restricted to Sony Smartphones. "Select (Settings) [System], and then select the checkbox for [UseButton for Enter].This option is available only for specific countries and regions".
